GPA Announces New InCycle™ Expanded PET
Located in McCook, Ill., GPA announced the latest addition to its product line: InCycle™ Expanded PET, a sustainable alternative to traditional films and synthetics.
Manufactured from recycled water bottles (25 percent to 50 percent post-consumer recycled PET), InCycle™ uses as little as one-fifth the raw materials of traditional synthetic films and weighs up to 80 percent less than other film products, offering significant savings on freight and shipping costs. Qualifying as a number-one recyclable plastic, this material is the most common and easiest type of plastic to recycle.
By using an innovative, new technology, InCycle™ is expanded by precisely distributing billions of microscopic bubbles beneath the solid skin surface. This engineered microstructure gives InCycle™ its characteristic light weight and superior thermal insulating properties. InCycle™ also is naturally bright white without the addition of pigments; this creates a crisp backdrop and remarkably smooth surface for vivid graphic reproduction.
InCycle™ is perfect for a variety of applications, including: signage and displays, packaging and boxes, posters and menus, POP and shelf talkers, cups and containers, presentation folders, gift cards and durable brochures. It also is suitable for a wide variety of finishing processes, including: die cutting, coating, foil stamping, folding, embossing and debossing, and thermoforming. InCycle™ Expanded PET is stocked in 28x40" sheets for offset and UV printing, with custom sizes and gauges up to 60 mil available.
