Piggotts is now able to offer you printed products such as eco-friendly flags and banners on 100% recycled fabric from PET bottles.
How we make our recycled printed flags and banners
Bales of plastic bottle waste are supplied to us by recycling collectors. Our yarn manufacturers’ workers then have to separate the coloured bottles from the clear ones and every bottle is inspected to ensure that it’s free from any foreign materials including the labels and the caps. The sorted PET bottles are then sterilized, dried and crushed into small chips, separating the clear PET bottle chips from coloured PET bottle chips.
Once the chips are ready, they go through heating that will enable them to pass to the spinneret until they end up being wound up like yarn threads in spools. The fibres are drawn into smooth strings and then go through a crimping machine which gives the polyester yarns a fluffy woolly texture. The crimped polyester yarns are then dried, baled and then checked for quality control before being considered fit for sale.
This yarn, which is eco-friendly and recycled is what we use to make a whole range of environmentally friendly printed flags, banners, advertising banners, windsocks, feather and blade flags.
We can provide any printed flags and banners you require using these recycled materials, so if you require more information on the options or any of our other flags, banners, bunting, windsocks, exhibition bundles, building wraps or scaffolding banners, please contact us.
