DP Lenticular expands sustainable offering at IST’s UV Days 2019

April 17, 2019

DP Lenticular has responded to market demand for a sustainable lenticular sheet with the launch of its 75 LPI Lenstar ECO. Samples of the new grade will be shown for the first time at IST’s UV Days 2019, in Nürtigen, Germany, 13th to 16th May 2019.

“Customers are increasingly asking us for more environmentally conscious products,” explains DP Lenticular's founder and managing director Daniel Pierret. “Our Lenstar Plus resin is specific so using PET bottles was impossible. It could also result in increased quality control issues.”

Replacing DP Lenticular’s popular ECOLENS range, 75 LPI Lenstar ECO has been developed with PACUR to support a more transparent approach to sustainability while ensuring the high quality of the lenticular image remains the same. It features 50% industrial recycled resin. It is extruded to the same specification as 75 LPI Lenstar Plus ‘Lite’ and has the same 406µ elliptical lens.

“For our 75 LPI Lenstar Plus 'Lite' customers the only difference is the 50% industrially recycled resin,” states Pierret. “There is no difference in terms of ink adherence or 3D or animation effect. The price will be similar too.”

As with all LPI Lenstar Lenticular’s range 75 LPI Lenstar ECO can be printed on almost all offset printing presses and will be available in the small 52-sheet size so that there is no need for sheet cutting.

75 LPI Lenstar ECO has been developed to help printers achieve their sustainable goals. It is specially designed for offset printing and offers superior product performance. Created with ease of cutting and finishing in mind, it delivers high optical clarity, great impact resistance, print receptivity and press stability.

75 LPI Lenstar ECO is available now. Full pallets are stored in Antwerp (Belgium), and in Ireland in small quantities. The sheets are palletized with 1500 sheets per pallet. Orders for small quantities can be placed online through a dedicated web shop.

During 4 days, from 13th to 16th May, DP Lenticular will show this new product (and the others) during the UV Days in Nürtingen, the world’s largest in-house exhibition for optical systems that will take place for the 9th time.
