Mitsubishi HiTec Paper is presenting a wide range of coated specialty papers for the label and packaging market, and launching new innovations, at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

As a paper product, the new jetscript METAL VPG 1018 (110 g) is purely fibre-based with a silver metallic glossy finish and a transparent, microporous inkjet coating for high-quality printing performance. The inkjet paper impresses with its high print density, fast drying, compatibility with latex inks and optimum performance in the self-adhesive production process. This makes it particularly suitable for eye-catching and high-quality labels in the beverage, cosmetics or food sector, as well as other applications such as wrapping paper, advertising panels and displays.

With the new barricote BAG WGOM (89g), Mitsubishi launches a particularly sustainable barrier paper for flexible food packaging, which impresses with a universal multi-barrier. It protects food and consumers not only from water vapor, fat/oil and oxygen/aroma, but also from mineral oil migration (MOSH / MOAH), and thus offers particularly wide barrier protection. In addition, BAG WGOM can be heat-sealed very effectively and is approved for direct food contact. The virgin fibre paper product is 100% free of plastic films, aluminium and fluorocarbons, fully recyclable, and FSC® or PEFC™ certified.

In addition, Mitsubishi will be showcasing a comprehensive range of coated specialty papers for the label market:

  • Thermoscript thermal papers (e.g. for linerless applications, with extra high heat resistance or with back protection);
  • Jetscript inkjet papers (e.g. a light 70 g version, grades for ticket and tag applications or with an embossed surface);
  • Supercote cast-coated label papers (e.g. for wet glue labels, composite cans and shoulder boxes).
