Antacote Lite -Antalis launches 100% recyclable retail hanging signage

Antalis McNaughton's Sign and Display division has launched Antacote Lite, a 100% recyclable retail hanging signage solution that combines ecology with dimensional stability.

Antacote Lite offers all of the benefits and printability of traditional foam centred products such as flatness, good rigidity, lightweight and excellent dimensional stability, but unlike the polystyrene or rigid polyurethane foam (PUR) centred alternatives Antacote Lite is 100% recyclable and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) accredited.

Antacote Lite was developed by Antalis McNaughton in conjunction with Germany's KATZ Group, an internationally renowned manufacturer of recyclable wood pulp products, to meet the increasing corporate responsibility needs of the retail sector and as such has attracted significant interest from several leading international retail supermarket chains.

Chris Green, market manager for Antalis McNaughton says: "Antacote Lite offers a genuine environmental solution for hanging signage. It's more environmentally friendly than using foam boards, but also much stronger and lighter and unlike standard display board or corrugated products used in retail hanging signage, Antacote Lite remains flat and dimensionally stable."

All raw materials produced by The KATZ Group are fully recyclable and biodegradable which means that Antacote Lite can be fully recycled along with standard paper and board waste. In addition to helping to reduce landfill, the more environmentally astute retailers have taken to selling the end of life board for recycling purposes. One such major retailer reported a £250,000 saving on waste management following its move to Antacote Lite.
