Taya Groups has launched three new products in the Kavalan range, including what it claims is the first PVC-free mesh liner available on the market.

Spiderweb 300 L!ner is a complementary product to Kavalan Spiderweb PVC-free mesh banner material that Taya said will allow for a more versatile application of the material across businesses.

As well as being an environmentally friendly alternative to PVC mesh, this liner is also lighter and can help businesses overcome challenges associated with printing using Latex technology, the company said.

Sunlight Weldable Basic is a basic, non-fire-retardant option to Kavalan’s flagship PVC-free product Sunlight Weldable. It is said to be a cost-effective channel for businesses making their first move away from PVC.

Finally, Sunlight Zero is the first product in the Kavalan range to be fully biodegradable. Previously, other options in the Kavalan range have had biodegradable coatings.

I-Chien Lin, chairman of Taya Groups, said: “We are proud to be adding three original products to the Kavalan range that really open up the PVC-free revolution to a host of new businesses of varying size and scope, whatever stage they may be at on their green journey.

“We have been ramping up R&D and working closely with our customers to ensure we are delivering the solutions that the industry needs, and as we move closer to PVC-free being standard as opposed to specialised, we will continue to develop our portfolio.”

In the summer, Taya Groups launched an upgraded version of its Kavalan Eco Calculator, enabling businesses to evaluate and understand the eco-reductions offered by Kavalan PVC-free banner and textiles based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) data.
