Eco Friendly BIOFlex Banner Material
BIOflex by Ultraflex is the first biodegradable vinyl banner material. As quoted by Ultraflex, “Manufacturers have been searching for the most efficient way to make PVC recyclable, with millions of printed sign faces which will never degrade sitting in landfills worldwide. These efforts have been fruitful in relation to creating recyclable products. In order for the entire recycling process to succeed, however, it is necessary to pay the increasingly expensive trucking costs to transport the discarded signs to the limited recycling locations that can actually reuse the PVC.”
Ultraflex has been working diligently to create this new formula for biodegradable PVC. When exposed to conditions in a landfill (darkness, high heat and moisture), BIOflexTM attracts microbes that break down PVC and turn it into dust.
A “green” outdoor advertising campaign for the June 22nd release of EVAN ALMIGHTY included outdoor advertising boards in both Orlando and Hollywood parks, promotional banners for events and some in-theater displays, all produced using VUTEk BioVu inks and biodegradable BIOflex vinyl from Ultraflex.
