CMYUK UFabrik is a range of quality textiles produced from yarn made from recycled plastic bottle waste. It offers inventive sustainable solutions for the most popular applications within the soft signage and display markets including frontlit, backlit, blockout, wallcoverings and staple wrap around frames.
Fabricating yarn from plastic waste involves the collection of pre and post consumer plastics. Bottles are cleaned, sorted, shredded into flakes and then converted into pellets, which are melted into extruded fibres.
These are then spun into yarn, formed into bales and sent to digital textile manufacturers to produce high performance, recycled materials for the wide format digital printing industry.
