Taya Groups has launched three new products in its Kavalan range that offer PVC-free materials, including a fully biodegradable option, to a wider range of signage and display businesses.

Spiderweb 300 L!ner is claimed to be the first PVC-free mesh liner to reach the market. As a complementary product to Kavalan Spiderweb PVC-free mesh banner material, 300 L!ner will allow for more versatile applications. The company says that as well as being an environmentally friendly alternative to PVC mesh, this liner is lighter and can help businesses overcome challenges associated with Latex printing technology.

Sunlight Weldable Basic is an entry-level non-fire-retardant alternative to Kavalan’s flagship PVC-free product Sunlight Weldable, and is intended to be a cost-effective channel for businesses making their first move away from PVC.

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; Taya says that fully biodegradable materials are a ‘landmark innovation’ in wide-format materials, especially in view of the amount of these materials that wind up in landfill.

I-Chien Lin, chairman of Taya Groups, commented: ‘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.’
