GPA Announces New InCycle Expanded PET

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Press release from the issuing company

Chicago, IL – GPA proudly announces the latest addition to their product line: InCycle Expanded PET, the revolutionary, sustainable alternative to traditional films and synthetics. It offers durability, environmental benefits, and a feather-light weight one must feel to believe.
Manufactured from recycled water bottles (25-50% post-consumer recycled PET), InCycle uses as little as one-fifth the raw materials of traditional synthetic films andweighs up to 80% less than other film products, offering significant savings on freight and shipping costs. Qualifying as a #1 recyclable plastic, this material is the most common and easiest type of plastic to recycle. This new product makes it easier than ever for customers to make sustainable business choices.
By using an innovative new technology, InCycle is expanded by preciselydistributing billions of microscopic bubbles beneath the solid skin surface. This engineered microstructure gives InCycle its characteristic light weight and superior thermal insulating properties. InCycle is also 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 is also 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 28" x 40" sheets for offset and UV printing, with custom sizes and gauges up to 60 mil available.
