GPA Announces New InCycle™ Expanded PET

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 and weighs 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 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™ 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. 

GPA is the premier source for specialty substrates and solutions for offset and digital printing. Products include coated and uncoated papers, pressure sensitive and specialty papers, synthetic films and substrates exclusively engineered for HP Indigo presses. GPA is an HP Indigo Preferred Partner and a Platinum Partner of Dscoop (Digital Solutions Cooperative).
