Press release from the issuing company

ILFORD (http://www.ilford.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of professional quality media for both inkjet printing and color photographic processes, today unveiled its new BioMedia and Photo Realistic ranges that offer print-for-pay businesses an environmentally-friendly alternative to standard commercial print materials. With growing pressure on businesses to adopt environmentally sustainable policies and processes, ILFORD has continued to embrace its responsibility to sustainable product innovation.


ILFORD BioMedia provides a complete, biodegradable solution to replace coated vinyl or polyester media displays and traditional mounting boards. As an eco-friendly replacement for these existing but ever-lasting commercial products, BioMedia meets the most demanding expectations for quality and performance while maximizing environmental benefit. The new range, which includes Display Film, Display Film UV, Rigid Display Board and Laminate, employs an enzyme to accelerate the biodegradation process to completely breakdown the products under anaerobic landfill conditions, saving valuable landfill capacity. BioMedia was recognized as a 2011 SGIA Product of the Year in the Media - Vinyl category.

The wide format media includes gloss and satin finishes, and offers excellent performance with aqueous dye and pigment inks, as well as UV cured, HP latex and electrostatic printers. Longer length rolls of 131ft (235 gsm) and 164ft (175 gsm), along with high opacity and stiffness figures, ensure improved productivity with a high quality look-and-feel, ideal for printing posters, exhibition panels and graphic displays.
