- VINYL MESH
Originally designed for large trucks to cover whatever they haul. In the manufacturing process of the vinyl coated polyester yarn, each yarn is coated individually then spooled. This spool is then used to manufacture either a solid color mesh or a specific color design within the mesh. The extra spools or left over yarns that used to be thrown out are then woven in a multi-colored mesh. This allows the manufacturer to eliminate the waste of the left over yarns.
Over 500,000 tons of billboards are printed on and disposed of every year, adding a tremendous amount of waste and using massive amounts of energy! Even misprinted billboards are discarded, seemingly unsuitable for display or any other use, until now.
