Easy to router and easy to print on, Foamalux Light Bio is ideally suited to a range of fabrication applications. From shop fitting, to exhibition stands, and even the creation of pet and animal enclosures, It provides an ideal choice for brands looking for the very best quality, while also keeping sustainability front of mind and reducing environmental impact.
A Sustainable Future
As part of its sustainability strategy, Brett Martin measures and aims to reduce the impact of business operations, and in 2022, Planet Mark certification was achieved based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint.
Brett Martin’s dedication to achieving net zero emissions is evident through renewable energy infrastructure. With a 2.3MWP wind turbine towering at 99.5 meters on-site, and a 6.42MWp solar farm nearby, Brett Martin can quietly generate green energy, resulting in a savings of over 900 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
Speaking on the launch of this new product and the growth of the low carbon range Sales Director Ian Noble commented, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be bringing Foamalux Light Bio to the market. With a 20% reduction in carbon emissions this product showcases Brett Martin’s continued investment and commitment in providing high-quality, low carbon, sustainably manufactured semi-finished plastic substrates. Made with 25% bio-circular attributed PVC, Foamalux Light Bio provides a bright white, smooth printing surface as a perfect solution to sustainability conscious printers, routers and fabricators. Foamalux Light Bio harnesses the exact same qualities as traditional Foamalux Light but with a 20% lower carbon footprint.”
