Sentec announces the European launch of Xanita at Global Print Expo 2019

Sentec International partners with sustainable fibre-board manufacturer Xanita. This is the most recent addition to Sentec’s fast expanding brand portfolio of innovative solutions for digital printing and design.

Sentec International, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of specialist media for the digital printing industry made the agreement with Xanita for having the exclusive continental European distribution rights. This is the most recent addition to Sentec’s fast expanding brand portfolio of innovative solutions for digital printing and design.

Xanita Board is a sustainable engineered fibre-board. Manufactured with the use of fibres recovered from recycled paper products such as cardboard boxes. Xanita Board is VOC free, 100% re-pulpable, 75% lighter than MDF and significantly stronger than visually similar honeycomb boards. The boards core is made from 100% post-consumer kraft and sugar cane waste and is fully re-cyclable and re-pulpable alongside with normal paper waste. It is designed to work with all well-known digital flatbed printers, hybrid printers and CNC cutters.

The addition of the Xanita fibre boards range strengthens the position of Sentec International as a supplier of sustainable materials as an alternative for single-use plastic-based materials. Xanita fibre boards fulfils the growing demand for sustainable and robust rigid boards. A fast-growing segment in our industry.
 
Besides the environmental aspects Xanita Board is a practical, durable and functional and stronger alternative for the traditional honeycomb boards and MDF. Xanita board strikes the perfect balance between premium quality and eco friendliness.
 
Guus Richter, Managing Director of Sentec International comments: “The addition of the Xanita brand to our portfolio of other sustainable products such as Neenah, is a new and exciting opportunity for us to help our customers to get away from plastic based materials at this turning point in the industry towards the use of sustainable products.“
