Amari Digital Printing Technologies, part of the Vink group - has announced the immediate availability of the Decal PVC-Free range of substrates, offering print service providers (PSPs) the opportunity to add a host of environmentally friendly qualities to their graphics output.

Comprising two vinyl options and one laminate, the new range is free from heavy metals, phthalates, plasticisers and isocyanate-containing compounds, but offers the same feel, appearance and quality of conventional PVC.

However, unlike PVC materials, the Decal PVC-Free products are made with water-based adhesives, and are therefore free of volatile organic compounds. Not only do they reduce the ecological footprint and protect human beings, they also maintain all the properties that generate decal effectiveness.

The range includes:

Decal PVC Free P PE 65 UVP Matte/Gloss White

Decal PVC-Free P PE 65 UVP is a new vinyl available in Matte White and Gloss White options. Supplied in rolls measuring 1,370mm x 50m, it offers outdoor durability of up to four years - opening up all sorts of application opportunities for PSPs.

Decal PVC Free P PE 65 UVP Gloss Clear

The second vinyl comes in the form of Decal PVC-Free P PE 65 UVP Gloss Clear. Also available in rolls measuring 1,370mm x 50m, it can be applied on smooth, flat and slightly curved surfaces and has an outdoor durability of up to four years.

Decal PVC Free P HT 65 UVP Gloss Laminate

Finally, the new range features Decal PVC-Free P HT 65 UVP Gloss Laminate, which, also supplied in rolls measuring 1,370mm x 50m, has an outdoor durability of up to four years and can be printed with water-based, solvent, eco-solvent, UV LED and latex ink technologies.

All the new Decal PVC-Free products comply with the European regulation REACH, which controls the production and use of chemical substances and minimises their impact on human health and the environment.

On the new introductions to the product line-up, Dominic Bowen, General Manager of ADAPT, comments: "The Decal PVC-Free range is the first launch in a series of new environmentally-minded media products planned for ADAPT.

"Decal PVC-Free is the natural choice for print service providers wanting to reinforce their print offerings with more ecological solutions."
