In a first for the Australian flatbed printing industry, Xanita are pleased to announce that they have secured an “Eco-Specifier” listing for X-Board Print.

X-Board Print is a rigid substrate manufactured from recycled cardboard, optimised for flatbed UV inkjet printers and allows UV inkjet printed panels to be fully recycled back into cardboard pulp, post-use, for cradle-to-cradle advertising, exhibition and event useage.

es_logo_white_vert_org.gifEcospecifier's aim is to help building professionals including architects, designers, builders and specifiers, as well as keen homeowners, to shortcut the eco and healthy materials sourcing process.

Its broader aim is to help create a more sustainable physical environment by increasing the use of environmentally preferable and healthy products, materials and design processes.

Designers today need to be mindful of the upstream and downstream implications of decisions in an economic, legal and ecological sense.

A range of new standards, including Green Star, BASIX, The Building Code of Australia, NABERS and ABGR, are turning these drivers into tangible measuring tools in the market place.

A Good Environmental Choice of Australia (GECA) listing will now be pursued by the company as it challenges non-sustainable, traditional methods of mounting adhesive-vinyl prints over MDF, particleboard and foam boards, which typically get disposed of as landfill post-use.

X-Board is currently specified by numerous museums, design schools, television studios, and sustainability-focussed corporations and will also feature at POPAI’s “The Futures So Bright Green Sustainability Conference” later this month in Sydney, where Xanita is a co-sponsor.
