Swanline Paper and Board, part of the Swanline Group, has launched a new environmentally friendly display board range that is 100% fibre based yet is resistant to moisture. The environmentally friendly product is FSC certified. It can replace many plastic-based alternatives without cost or performance penalty and is suitable for packaging and POS solutions. Cygnus® Eco Board is the world’s leading environmentally friendly display board versus plastic. Its resistance to moisture makes it perfect for temporary outdoor signage and short term moisture sensitive single-use signage and packaging.
Cygnus® Eco Board is the perfect alternative to foam boards, foam PVC, fluted polypropylene, PE coated materials, HIPS and other plastic composites – even aluminium composite. It is suitable for offset, screen and UV flatbed digital print techniques, has exceptional ink adhesion and can be digitally or die cut.
Available in a range of callipers (310, 430, 520, 830, 1250, 1500 2200 micron) Cygnus® Eco Board is perfect for a wide range of applications including; “For Sale” signage, bollard covers, plant pots, product trays, shelf strips and mop trays to mention but a few. The board is fully recyclable, in fact it can be recycled up to eight times, it is compostable and biodegradable and so it can be disposed of in the normal paperboard waste stream.
Ross Griffin, Managing Director Swanline Paper & Board commented, “We are extremely excited to share this new range as it offers an environmentally friendly alternative for numerous packaging and POS applications. Many people assume there will be a compromise in using an environmentally friendly board; either it will be more expensive than, or not as durable as, plastic alternatives. However, we have put the board through its paces and have conducted a wide range of trials over the last 12 months. We know this board can withstand extreme weather conditions and be used for a variety of applications.”
Swanline Paper & Board is committed to providing environmentally friendly boards and substrates for use in the packaging and POS industry. This new range is the second launched this year and further demonstrates the commitment and passion the business has to eradicating single use plastic.
