Lintec Europe will be launching new labelstock innovations including material that improves the recyclability of PET bottles and a direct thermal paper that can be used as an alternative to synthetic products at Labelexpo Europe 2023.
MMP Mono Material Polyester (PET) is designed for application to polyester packaging such as single use water bottles. The clear film features a strong yet removable adhesive and features two additional key advantages when compared to conventional labelling films. The film and adhesive are manufactured from polyester so if any labels are not removed before the washing and grinding process the risk of contamination is reduced. A special topcoating also enables the labels to de-inked via a typical 1.5% alkaline @ 70°C washing process.
Plaless direct thermal paper has been introduced to reduce the use of synthetic direct thermal labelstocks. Conventional paper is inherently porous, hydrophilic and has considerably weaker mechanical properties compared to plastic. Traditionally these characteristics excluded the use of paper for many applications. Plaless direct thermal paper however offers superior moisture and water immersion resistance, improved rub resistance and is microwave oven compatible. The material has successfully replaced plastic based labelstocks in the food, beverage, and logistics sectors.
