Recycled Polyester Fabrics
Recycled Polyester Fabric
Eco-friendly, printable fabrics for displays.
Recycled polyester fabrics (R-PET) are made from recycled polyethene. The plastic is sourced from drinks bottles and plastic packaging, which would otherwise be incinerated, go to a landfill, or enter the ocean, making it a sustainable choice.
They have many great qualities – they’re strong, offer fantastic printability, and boast a degree of elasticity. They perform the same as PET fabrics but with greater eco-credentials.
Our range of R-PET fabrics includes display textiles in 110g/m2, and 150g/m2 weights (thicker fabrics are better for opacity and larger displays) and in widths up to 3.2m to suit wide-format printing campaigns.
Printers love our R-PET fabrics because they are mostly compatible with dye-sublimation, UV-C, and latex printers, with dependable performance and a durable, long-lasting surface that resists abrasion and marring.
You can’t go wrong with our R-PET printable fabrics. They’re ideal for banner frames, pop-up systems, stretch graphics, backdrops, and hard surface coverings like tablecloths. They are also fire-rated to B1 certification, making them suitable for use under a light source.
