Gecko: The Non-Slip Polyprop

Plaspro have been promoting Gecko, an innovative non-slip polyprop as an alternative to traditional laminated PVC materials currently used for mouse mats (or similar) products in the promotional industry.

Gecko contains NO Plasticizers and complies with REACH standards so can be easily recycled.

Print trials have been run and great results have been achieved using Screen, UV Litho and Digital technology allowing a multitude of finishes and designs, ideal for advertising and POS.

Applications –

  • Counter Mats
  • Desk Mats
  • Mouse Mats
  • Writing Pads
  • Floor Signage
  • Shelf/Draw liners

It has excellent lay flat qualities and recovers well if creased or bent. It can also be welded to most polyolefin films (PP & PE) using thermo contact, hot plate or wires.

Available in 700mic – 1500mic in sheets or on the roll and supplied in Black, White or a range of solid colours, Gecko can help save cost by reducing the production processes involved with PVC and lamination.

Please contact:
Plaspro & Co. Ltd on 01438 726269 to request further information and samples.

Special Items

EcoCard White 0060B 450 Satin+Satin Both side printing – Very smooth

Standard Primex Indigo is suitable for industrial (one shot) HP presses, S1000/2000 while registration issues may occur on the commercial multi-shot presses due to thermal expansion caused by the heat the PP substrate is exposed to.

EcoCard has been developed and specially formulated by ExP to ‘act’ like PVC while offering a 30% better yield. Due to its unique formulation, EcoCard can withstand exposure to heat and can be used on the commercial multi-shot presses such as S5500 & S7500.

Primex Ecocard is ideal for horticultural tags and labels but has been specifically developed for cards as it is more rigid and brittle than standard PP but gives the feel of PVC. It also has great chemical resistance and scratch resistance due to its excellent ink adhesion.

Standard substrates can be die cut in the usual PP process, however due to the hardness of EcoCard, we recommend using a cannon press and drill for cards and labels.
A magnetic strip can be laminated to EcoCard and PET film can be hot laminated if an overlay is required.
However, we are working on a varnish system to give a smooth glossy finish that will result in a ‘single substrate’ card.

Primex materials cannot be welded on the primed side and PUR glues should be carefully selected for use on automatic glue lines to avoid issues with bubbling or yellowing of the glue and tests should be carried out if gluing to the primer.

If material is for food contact, please ask for material without primer or we can offer a food safe solution.

ExP have also developed a ‘soft’ Indigo substrate, ideal for sports events where variable data is required such as numbered labels for marathon runners or bike races.

Samples and prices are available on request and if you would like us to look at any developments of a substrate you require..Just ask!
