Antalis has extended its plastic substrates portfolio with the addition of Priplak, a range of strong but flexible polypropylene sheets that can be used for a variety of applications.
The 100% recyclable plastic substrate was previously sold by Paperlinx UK, most of which recently fell into administration.
The range, which is PVC-free and 35% lighter than PVC, allows for fine image detail to create high-impact marketing campaigns, according to Antalis.
Priplak is corona treated on both sides, which enables it to be printed in UV offset, UV screen and UV digital, and it is suitable for POS and display applications such as illuminated displays, backlit posters, packaging, labelling and stationery products.
Products in the range include Priplak Basic, an economic range of white and translucent grades, Priplak Classic, which is available in white and produces high-quality print and image protection, and Priplak Colours, which offers a wide range of colours for presentation and display requirements.
Antalis product manger Mike Collins said: “Printers and designers are always seeking new ways to achieve a fresh, modern appearance for their projects. The Priplak range meets these criteria by helping printers bring the customer’s design to life.
“It also helps designers to reduce their carbon footprint, which is often a deal-breaker when specifying a product. Polypropylene is also durable and can be applied with ease, so whatever the duration, the Priplak promotional display will continue to look its best.
“Priplak has always been acknowledged as the market-leading brand in polypropylene, it certainly has the widest range including colours and specialist materials. We want to provide continuity of supply and also add to what we can offer our existing customer base as well."
Collins said the Priplak range will be available to order from Antalis within the next two weeks.
He added that, due to the market gap that’s been created by Paperlinx, Antalis is planning to add further products to its polypropylene and PVC ranges in the near future.
