The new face materials include both paper and foil-like solutions for all printing processes; the minimum quantity for all products is 500 m².

From the large number of face materials available on the market, VPF qualified selected materials with a particularly sustainable character. Points such as recyclability, compostability and existing certifications were included in the qualification process just as much as the origin and the associated logistical routes (CO2 balance).
