Biobased polymers are gaining increased prominence in the minds of consumers, as increased awareness of climate change and plastic pollution continues to grow. However, the range of biobased alternatives to the main plastics we encounter in our daily lives continues to limit its potential adoption. Key to accelerating the switch from petrochemical to biobased plastics is going to be a larger diversity of materials, including commodity polyolefins such as polypropylene and polyethylene. IDTechEx looks at the key manufacturers of biobased polymers and production methods and capacities, in their report, “Biobased Polymers 2018-2023: A Technology and Market Perspective”.

The German TroFilms GmbH, based in Georgensgmünd in Central Franconia, is launching a new film quality with immediate effect. Under the product name TroPROTECT®-X MATT, the film specialist has developed and lead to market an excimer film, meeting all the requirements of modern film applications. In addition to a very high scratch and abrasion resistance at high matt grades with only 4.5 gloss levels (measured at 60 ° and a manufacturing tolerance of less than ± 1 gloss points) and excellent feel, this film quality can also convince by good tear resistance and very good processing qualities. Furthermore, the TroPROTECT®-X MATT is basically hot foil stampable like almost all foils of the TroFilms GmbH, can be overcoated with radically curing UV lacquers and glued (preliminary tests are recommended for all processing processes).

Coastline Graphics were tasked by Upbeat to design a full wrap for their delivery vans. The brief was aimed at making the vans stand out whilst promoting one of the drink flavours, the client also wanted a seamless design that covers the whole vehicle including the air-conditioning unit on the roof. Once the design was complete, we used one of our large format digital printers to print the graphics onto 3M’s IJ180. We then proceeded to laminate the wrap with 3M’s matt option for their IJ180 range. We chose the matt laminate to mimic the matt finish of the actual drinks bottles.
