    The future of interior design - personalised wallpaper

    Whether in private homes or large scale commercial projects, personalized interior design has never been in such high demand as it is today. For interior designers, shopfitters and booth builders, printable wall coverings offer a cost-efficient way of giving interiors that eye-catching finish.

    Sensational promotion or long-lasting wall design

    When selecting the medium, it is vital to plan ahead. Whether long-term wall design in hotels and other interiors or short-term promotion at the point of sale – there are suitable wall coverings for any purpose. High-tack wallpapers offer powerful adhesive formulas, ideal for semi-permanent or permanent installations. For short- to medium-term campaigns, for example, at the point of sale, there are products that can be quickly removed without leaving any residue.

    The look of real wallpaper paired with the creative freedom of graphics films

    Whether opting for geometric designs, advertising messages or landscape photography, almost any design can be applied to printable wallpaper. This presents an enormous potential for interior designers. Depending on the product, the wallpapers feature textures just like regular wallpapers do, ranging from woodchip to linen. In terms of the compatible printing technologies, Neschen offers printable wallpapers for nearly all inks, ranging from UV-curing inks to latex and solvent inks. In the shopfitting industry, digitally printable wall coverings not only score with their versatility: Many wall coverings are ideal for public areas because they are washable, abrasion-resistant and durable. This makes them ideal for high-traffic areas such as shopping malls.

    Discover how printable wall coverings transform interiors

    Porto’s newest luxury hotel gives its guests a glimpse into a rich history: The Hotel Pestana Porto – A Brasileira is built in the famous A Brasileira Café, the first to serve coffee in a cup in the early 20th century. Renowned for the slogan „The best coffee comes from A Brasileira“, it has a special past. The 5-star hotel still features the buildings’ original architectural elements and boasts 115 years of history. The rooms‘ themes are all tied to the spices and products imported during the Portuguese maritime expansion during the 15th and 16th centuries. Digitally printable wall coverings are a perfect medium for these types of applications: The wall designs fully transform the look and feel of hotel rooms, restaurants, and retail areas while being cost-efficient. Since interior designers and shopfitters are free in selecting any design, printable wall coverings are more and more appreciated as a sophisticated design element for interiors.

    Neschen Wallpaper Performance LinenOn the walls of the hotel’s 89 rooms, Neschen’s wallpaper performance linen pays tribute to the interesting history of the hotel.

  2. Book Protection: PVC versus Polypropylene films

    Book Protection: PVC versus Polypropylene films

    In many industries, products and manufacturing processes that are more sustainable is becoming more and more important. In the field of self-adhesive media, the movement towards eco-friendliness represents a major challenge. The problem is obvious: Plastic and therefore self-adhesive films are generally challenging in regards to their eco-friendliness. However, it is difficult to avoid them completely in everyday life. For example in book protection films, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) has many advantages towards other materials and is easy to work with. Nevertheless, Neschen has developed many product alternatives on the basis of PP (polypropylene) instead of PVC over the years. This way, customers can choose a suitable product depending on each individual application. Additionally, Neschen works with solvent-free acrylate adhesives and ensures that all raw materials are free of harmful additives.

    But what exactly is the difference between PVC and PP?

    After PE (polyethylene) and PP, PVC is the third most important polymer for plastics. PVC is divided into hard and soft PVC. Many users prefer PVC films because they are softer and more elastic and therefore easier to process. PP is recognised as an eco-friendlier alternative because it is a simply structured synthetic material and also a “by-product” of the petrol industry. This resource is put to good use in the form of protecting or mounting films.

    Over the years, Neschen has developed alternatives on the basis of PP for virtually every application (digital print, protection and mounting films). PP films are a little more difficult to work with because they are less flexible. Cutting through the material is also a little more difficult than cutting through the PVC version.

    Nevertheless, a lot speaks for using PP films as an alternative to PVC:

    • non-toxic combustion
    • byproduct of the petrol industry
    • does not contaminate ground water
    • virtually shrink-proof
    • temperature resistant up to +100°C (212°F)

    Pit Stop at FESPA: Neschen presents exhibition stand as Bike Cafe

    At this years FESPA, Neschen Coating GmBH is presenting a creative bike cafe. In addition to its top sellers, the company is presenting product innovations such as a new hybrid mounting film for difficult substrates, currently the only solution of this kind on the market

    Bike cafes are conquering cities as a popular cycling destination. In addition to instant service and a cozy backdrop for a pit stop, the popular cafes offer a shop area with bicycle accessories and spare parts. For FESPA 2020 in Madrid, Neschen Coating GmbH is following this trend and presents an exhibition booth in the style of a bike café with an industrial design theme. FESPA Global Print Expo is expected to attract over 18,000 industry professionals in four days—from the 24th to the 27th of March 2020. It is Europe’s largest international trade exhibition for the digital printing industry.

    Besides just coffee, there is much else to discover in Neschen’s bicycle cafe. The booth features minimalistic industrial design elements made of brick, concrete, wood, iron and corrugated sheet metal and—just like an authentic bike café—with a sitting area and workshop area. The concept is ideal for presenting Neschen‘s products, featuring bikes elaborately designed with Neschen media, photo art with gudy® mounting films and industrial design walls with products of the wallcovering range. “We would like to present to our visitors the diverse application possibilities of our products in a realistic environment, this year, in form of a bike cafe,” says Kai Tittgemeyer, CEO of Neschen Coating GmbH.

    With new hybrid adhesive film even demanding substrates can be equipped with self-adhesive properties

    In addition to already established products, Neschen is presenting new product developments such as gudy® 806 hybrid. The film is a unique solution, created to equip challenging substrates with self-adhesive properties, guaranteeing a long-term and reliable bond.

    The new gudy® hybrid film is the only solution of this kind on the market: Even challenging materials can now be equipped with self-adhesive properties.

    This mounting film is ideal for demanding or heavy materials such as textiles, tarpaulins or foam boards. In the cafés workshop area, the Bueckeburg-based company presents one of its high-performance laminators: The Neschen ColdLam 1650. It was designed for mounting and laminating prints up to 1650 mm wide and is suitable for processing a wide range of materials.

    More than just a trend – Neschen extends sustainable product portfolio

    Sustainability is more than just a trend for Neschen. The manufacturer already offers green alternatives in all portfolio areas. The continuously expanded Green Wall range of printable wallpapers and products such as UVprint PP easy dot® transparent are just two examples of more sustainable solutions. This portfolio will be continuously expanded in the future.

    Neschen Coating GmbH is exhibiting in Hall 5 at booth D55.
