CMYUK has unveiled its enhanced sustainable PVC-free materials portfolio that offers high performing, proven eco substitutes for all major wide-format print applications. 

The CMYUK eco range represents the most comprehensive collection of quality, PVC-free and non-toxic printing materials available from a central source. It is designed to replace the damaging footprint of traditional products that have historically been used by the wide format digital printing industry. 

CMYUK has worked exclusively with world-class manufacturing partners in some of the world’s most sustainably advanced facilities to produce this range that adheres to stringent environmental, performance, fire and safety ratings.  

The CMYUK Eco collection comprises:


CMYUK’s extended eco range has all major applications covered without using any PVC or toxin-based materials

UPRINT PVC and plasticiser-free self-adhesives are perfectly suited for signage and display applications. These are available in either a matt or gloss finish, with grey permanent or removable adhesive. Options include an airflow liner with integrated channels designed to facilitate the movement of air, eliminating any bubbles during installation. Matching PVC-free gloss, matt and textured laminates are also available. 

A wide collection of papers, films, backlit and exhibition materials are also included within the eco collection and UPRINT brand. 

UTACK This innovative self-adhesive materials range consists of PVC-free film and textiles that offer high = and low tack repositionable functionality, suitable for use within décor, display and signage applications.

UDECO This sustainably sourced décor material provides a springboard base for inspirational design and exceptional wall décor.

UFabrik Eco

UFabrik Eco textiles present a highly inventive re-purposed solution to the scourge of single use plastic waste. Made using recycled PET yarn from single use plastic waste, UFabrik Eco is designed for backlit, frontlit, and blockout in addition to single piece wallcoverings up to 5m wide and staple wrap around frames.  When using UFabrik for display and décor graphics, any business, corporate or brand can take comfort that their sustainability goals are being met with the same levels of print quality and durability. 


PVC-free Kavalan is the game changing proven replacement to traditional PVC banner material. Available in widths of 1.6, 3.2 or 5m, it looks like PVC, has the strength of PVC, welds like PVC, and importantly is environmentally responsible. It has all the advantages of PVC yet none of its eco-malignance. 

The Kavalan banner range is designed with the complexities and limitations of end-of-life disposal in mind and can be incinerated safely without any harmful effects to health or the environment.  Any emissions are hundreds of times lower than that of PVC banner, and well below the minimum safety levels issued by EU guidelines.  

Kavalan weighs up to 50% less than PVC, making it easy to handle and install. This also significantly reduces carbon emissions during transportation.
