KAVALAN Announces Distribution Partnership with Spicers Australia as Worldwide Shift to PVC-Free Materials Continues

TAYA Groups is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading Australian print distributor, Spicers Australia. Marking the continued global adoption of more sustainable printable materials, the collaboration, already in effect, will allow Spicers to offer the KAVALAN range of PVC-free, 100 percent clean large-format media to their significant Australian customer base. This will meet the growing client demands for more sustainable, high-quality solutions.


KAVALAN is a revolutionary range of banner materials, and unlike any other product on the market today, it has the unique advantage of offering supreme quality, strength and performance with none of the ecologically-toxic elements of traditional PVC banner. Its key focus on a zero-toxic end-of-life disposal and a reduced environmental impact throughout the entire production process is now paying dividends for KAVALAN customers and the environment.  With the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) process completed on the latest range of KAVALAN banner materials, the range is now the proven environmentally-superior alternative to traditional PVC banner.


This momentous partnership in the Australian market is a vital step towards the elimination of PVC in banner materials worldwide. To put the significant environmental impact into comparable terms, below are examples of the Eco-savings to be made if PVC banner is replaced with their Kavalan counterparts.


‧ 10,000 square metres of KAVALAN Butterfly360 will save enough CO2 equivalents emitted during fifteen single economy seats from New York to London

‧ 10,000 sqm of Sunlight Light will save enough fossil fuel to power a BMW 3 series on 16 return journeys between London and Paris.

‧ 10,000 sqm of KAVALAN Spiderweb300 would save the carcinogenic equivalent as 7.4 million packs of cigarettes.


Vincent Lin, Vice President, TAYA Groups, comments: “We are so excited to start our partnership with Spicers Australia, and for customers in the Australian market to enjoy the environmental and commercial benefits of the KAVALAN range. The Spicers team understands and engages with KAVALAN’s environmentally-responsible mission, and holds an outstanding reputation in the market. We can’t wait to see customers getting creative with KAVALAN products across Australia, while also doing their part to protect and preserve our planet.”


Wayne Hood, Spicers Sign and Display Portfolio Manager, adds: “Introducing the Kavalan range to our portfolio allows us to better align with our customers’ sustainable initiatives. We are constantly searching the world for new products which meet best practice standards in manufacturing, performance and sustainability. Kavalan is a perfect addition to our range offering a non-PVC solution to our customers.”



Samples are available in Australia from Spicers representatives.
