Lite Group’s Environmentally Friendly Products a Huge Draw

Lite Group participated in Printex 19 which was held from 13-16 August 2019 in the sprawling Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

Participating in the Expo was the perfect opportunity for Lite Group to showcase its range of environmentally friendly products in an inspiring environment.

The rise in popularity of Lite Group’s extensive range, particularly the Envirocore range is the result of a passionate call for a change from environmentally unfriendly products.

The challenge for Lite Group was to manufacture premium quality printable boards which offered a level of functionality comparable to traditional foam but is 100% recyclable and cost-effective.

Litegroup products are made using honeycomb cardboard, essentially Kraft paper which is shaped in hexagonal cells that are glued together into a rigid board using facing materials.

Honeycomb boards are recyclable, have high vertical compression resistance and high load-bearing capacity. They are also shock absorbent and are as strong as steel on a weight by weight basis.

Compared to corrugated boards, honeycomb cardboard has the same size and thickness, but is 30% lighter and has about twice the plane pressure.
Honeycomb cardboard heralds the future of environmentally sustainable products for the print industry.

Many retailers looking for premium quality printable boards are looking at honeycomb cardboard as an alternative to traditional foam boards.

High-strength honeycomb cardboard is also the perfect lightweight replacement for heavy panel systems. They are easy to assemble, dismantle and transport.

The Envirocare range is perfectly suited for digital printing as well as wide-format screen printing. Available in Kraft or white facing, the sheets are available in a standard size of 2400 x 1200 mm or other sizes. They come in varying thicknesses of 10/15/20/30 mm and are easily machinable.

Visitors to Litegroup’s booth at PrintEx were impressed by features which make Printboards an ideal material for permanent or semi-permanent installations such as signage, exhibition graphics, POS, POP displays and shop fittings.
