Walki Group Oy Key Developments

Walki Group Introduces Walki Print Media XXl Family of Products

Walki Group has introduced the Walki®Print Media XXL family of products, which provides `green' printing and imaging solutions. This comes at a time when the OOH sector is steadily moving away from using chemically treated, moisture-resistant blueback papers and PVC-scrim for printed banners and displays. Growing awareness of the hazards that PVC poses to the environment and in particular, the difficulties faced in its disposal, has created a need for more eco-friendly products. Using ultra-light, tear resistant and recyclable raw materials, the Walki Group has developed new `green' print media by combining specific base materials and functional polymers. Walki's solutions can be used for both front-lit and back-lit applications, with a non-reflective, inkjet-receptive layer which is suitable for both UV-curable and Latex inks The three products within the Walki®Print Media XXL range are, Walki®Backlit: A reinforced coated paper - that has been established in the graphics market for about a decade - for long-term usage in outdoors scroll boxes and exclusively sold via selected media wholesalers. Walki®Billboard: A PP or PET-based coated multi-purpose nonwoven product for mid-term outdoor advertising on panels, rollup banner stands, and for home decoration. Walki®Banner: A HDPE or PP-based coated woven material for short-term outdoor advertising on frames and fences such as at sports events, exhibitions etc.
