Outdoor display board from Swanline
A new eco-friendly outdoor display board with water resistance lasting up to 15 weeks has been launched by Swanline Paper & Board (SPB).
Developed under SPB's Cygnus brand of packaging and display products, Cygnus Outdoor Display contains up to 60% recycled fibre, is FSC certified and is 100% recyclable. The board's 100% paper fibre composition precludes the need for a polyethylene (PE) coating without compromising water resistance, graphic/print capabilities or environmental qualities.
The two-side coated board does not require edge frames to protect it from water ingress and has a high resistance to tearing when in a damp environment. The board's smooth print surface means that, when compared to fluted polypropylene, there is no flute shadow whether screen, offset or digitally printed. It supports UV, Latex and (eco) solvent wide-format digital printing.
'Cygnus Outdoor Display is a groundbreaking development in outdoor signage,' said Ross Griffin, managing director at SPB. 'Its strong environmental credentials and unique, robust fibre construction enable it to be a viable alternative to plastic and PE-coated outdoor products.'
Swanline recommends the new board for temporary exterior signage applications, such as hanging signs, bollard shrouds, A-boards and posters, and for use indoors where moisture or humidity is an issue. It is available exclusively in the UK, in calipers of 830, 1250, 1500 and 2200 microns, in bespoke or stock sizes up to 1700 x 3600mm.
