Vinyl Art Sustainable Materials
Flexible plastic packaging is among the fastest-growing segments within the global packaging industry; but even as the market continues to expand, customers are acutely aware of the importance of supporting environmentally-friendly options.
Flexible packaging uses less material and fewer resources during production than other plastic products. Fewer trucks and pallets are needed to transport and store flexible packaging items, lowering their carbon footprint.
Eight years ago, we began our journey to make our flexible packaging solutions even more environmentally friendly. At that time, we began testing several prototypes which evolved into our two sustainable offerings below, including AdVantageVinyl™, a revolutionary product that will improve the future of our country’s sustainable infrastructure.
Vinyl Art AdVantageVinyl™
AdVantageVinyl™ is a fast, easy solution to help you reach your goals for reducing waste and achieving sustainability quickly and effectively, with no additional effort on your part.
We are proud to offer this product, and have trademarked it exclusively for Vinyl Art! We’re concerned about our environment, and want to offer our clients a means to help achieve their sustainability goals. To ensure we are providing the most sustainable vinyl product on the market, we have invested heavily in independent laboratory testing for AdVantageVinyl™, so you can be assured you are purchasing a sustainable product for your packaging and promotional projects.
All of our sustainable materials are:
- 65, CPSIA, RoHOS, and Reach compliant.
- Stable with the same shelf life of current materials.
- Able to be disposed of through curbside trash or litter pickups for disposal in modern landfills.
This material uses an organic additive to generate sustainable properties, which enables products to begin to degrade in as little as 286 days, according to an independent lab where materials were tested using ASTM D5511-18 test methods.
When you’re done using these items, they can be disposed of in curbside pickups (trash or recycling programs), taken to modern landfills.
Results Verified by Independent Laboratory Testing
Independent laboratory test results for the two of our most popular AdVantageVinyl™ products:
Adhesive-backed (6 mil) vinyl: Based on our independent lab testing, this product will degrade up to 38.5% in just 286 days once it has reached a modern landfill (ASTM D5511-18).
Non-adhesive-backed (8 mil) vinyl: Based on our independent lab testing, this product will start to degrade up to 32.1% in just over a year once it has reached a modern landfill.
Thanks to our 40+ year history and 5,000 dies in house, we can also make custom designs in any size or shape to help you engage your customers with this sustainable, quality branded material.
PolyPropylene (PP) Product
PolyPropylene (PP) product is a lighter, less dense archival material that is relatively inexpensive.
Suited to a larger volume, it also protects what you put into it to a greater degree than other products. This product is commonly used in rectangular or square shaped items.
