WHAT MATERIAL IS USED FOR BIODEGRADABLE BANNERS?
We use BIOflexTM An environmentally friendly, biodegradable PVC banner material.

WHAT IS THE PRINT QUALITY RESULT ?
As with your standard pvc materials BIOflexTM is used for full colour production.

WHAT IS THE LIFESPAN OF A BIOflexTM BIODEGRADABLE BANNER?
BIOflexTM  biodegradable banner has the same outdoor life as a standard PVC banner material.

HOW DOES BIOflexTM  DEGRADE?

When the biodegradable banner is in landfill there is an additive in BIOflexTM which starts to become active this will then start the process to degrade the PVC. For more information on this process please contact us.

WHAT CAN THE BIODEGRADABLE BANNERS BE USED FOR ?
BIOflexTM  Biodegradable PVC Banners were recently used at both the New York and London Live Earth gigs as well as for the advertising for Ewan Almighty in the US

 

Certified Testing

In an ISO 13641 study by an independent testing laboratory, addition of BIOflexTM to a landfill not only did not inhibit, but actually increased the level of biological activity. This ISO test is designed to ensure that materials added to a landfill do not release toxic substances. BIOflex begins to degrade in the landfill within a few weeks and depending on thickness and quantity added, the PVC will vanish in 3 to 5 years. It should be noted that landfills can be managed by control of temperature and moisture content so as to increase the level of biological activity.

The Woods End ASTM D5526 data show that the ratio of the fraction of organic carbon and hydrogen from BIOflex released to the air, and the fraction delivered to the solid biomass varies with landfill conditions, such as temperature and water content. The fraction released to the air is mostly methane, which can be harvested for fuel, along with the methane released by other components of the landfill, such as paper. Variability in the ratio of end product to the air and to the biomass is also typical of ther land-filled materials, such as paper.

BIOflex has been tested for field performance including strength and weathering in the above tests as well as exposure to 2000 hours of laboratory UV, which BIOflex showed no signs of discoloration.
