Kavalan

Kavalan is a recyclable, PCV-free banner material.

VGL is replacing all traditional banner material for Kavalan because of its environmental properties, which deliver the same high standard visual and functional specification, without compromising on quality, strength or fire ratings.

As well as performing in concert with all standard PVC banner material safety, fire and eco certifications, Kavalan is 50% lighter, making it easier to handle and reduces transport costs and carbon emissions – an additional green benefit.

No Landfill and Environmentally-friendly

Kavalan does not add to landfill and therefore reduces the impact of end-of-life disposal.

VGL has joined forces with industry waste disposal specialist Howe to Recycle, which has developed a traceable, closed-loop recycling service to facilitate waste recycling. At VGL we also offer the option for clients to return their product to us, if direct recovery is not suitable. In the unforeseen circumstances that Kavalan does accidentally end up in landfill, its non-polluting, water–based and biodegradable coating will easily decompose.

Kavalan can also be green-incinerated to generate electricity - an additional benefit to many other ‘recycled’ products, which can't follow this process. Kavalan ash is also a useful product for road maintenance, whereas other recycled products have to go to landfill. 

The Kavalan Range includes the following:

Kavalan Sunlight Weldable Frontlit Banner

Kavalan Sunlight Weldable Frontlit Banner is an affordable, lightweight, and highly versatile non-PVC material suitable for internal and external signage, events, and exhibitions. It can also be used in conjunction with Kavalan PVC-free Snail welding tape.

Kavalan Spiderweb 300 Mesh Banner

With the same strength, look and feel of a PVC mesh banner, the Kavalan Spiderweb 300 Mesh Banner delivers excellent material quality as well as beautiful image clarity. Available in widths of up to 5m wide, Spiderweb can be used with both UV and Latex ink, making it suitable for both internal and external use.

A double-sided, opaque material suitable for both indoor or short-term outdoor use for two-way signage and hanging banners. Compatible with UV and Latex inks and also available of widths of up to 5m, the Butterfly banner has the look and feel of a coated banner material but can be used with PVC-free Snail welding tape.
