New Vectan Lenticular Sheet

Quinn Plastics : 02 January, 2000  (New Product)
Manufactured on a special new line with unique tooling, the BARLO VECTAN lenticular sheet, made from raw materials produced by Eastman Chemical, can be supplied in thicknesses from 0.4 to 0.6mm, in sheet sizes up to 720mm wide and is being increasingly used in the promotional, incentives, packaging and point of purchase display industries.
Barlo Plastics, part of the Irish Barlo Group plc, which is quoted on the Stock Exchange (London and Dublin), has announced a new product, BARLO VECTAN lenticular sheet.

Manufactured on a special new line with unique tooling, the BARLO VECTAN lenticular sheet, made from raw materials produced by Eastman Chemical, can be supplied in thicknesses from 0.4 to 0.6mm, in sheet sizes up to 720mm wide and is being increasingly used in the promotional, incentives, packaging and point of purchase display industries.

Printed images that move, change shape, leap out in brilliant 3-D or even reproduce action video sequences, are made possible by the use of Barlo's extruded lenticular sheet, which, featuring a high refractive index, displays multiple images through successive lenticules, or grooved lenses, cut into the plastic surface.

A number of commercial projects have been produced by Burall PlasTec, a specialist UK litho plastics printer and pioneer of lenticular printing technology, in association with leading reprographics house Qualitech, who undertook the necessary digitised imaging work.

The two companies have launched a joint initiative called ImagivisionTM to commercially exploit the limitless opportunities that lenticular technology offers for powerful new concepts within the promotional and display industries and Barlo Plastics are pleased to be associated with them in this innovative and exciting work.

Barlo Plastics is a new force in the sheet plastics market created by the merger of IRG Plastics (Belgium), Resart (Germany) and Critesa (Spain). Recently, the company acquired Celair (France). The company offers a wider product range than any competitor, providing solutions for almost every need where transparent or translucent sheet is required. Key products include:

BARLO XT (extruded PMMA); BARLO CAST (cast PMMA); BARLO PC (extruded polycarbonate); BARLO PS (polystyrene); BARLO VECTAN (PETG); BARLO SAN; and BARLO SPC (structured multiwall polycarbonate).

As an independent producer focused exclusively on plastic sheet, Barlo Plastics is dedicated to providing the highest quality of product, customer service and technical support.

Headquartered in Geel, Belgium, Barlo Plastics has operating facilities in Belgium, Germany, Spain, France and the Czech Republic as well as sales and support operations in all major European countries.

Barlo Plastics is an operating company of the Irish Barlo Group, a European leader in plastic products and radiators and listed on the London and Dublin stock markets.
