Facestock Labels
Coated front materials for PSA coaters who supply the Labels Industry.
A4 and cut size

Applications where the converted self-adhesive material will be found in sheet form, very often with pre die-cut labels. The V.I.P. technologies laser and water-based inkjet are predominant, lay-flatness a key feature.

Beverage

Its wet environment and specific marketing requiremetns (no label look) are reasons to separate this segment.

Durables

Durable labels are used in the automotive, electronic and household appliance industry. They have to match over a life time of many years very high quality standards guaranteed and controlled among others by organisations like the UL laboratories.

Food

A huge variety of labels to promote products and their image. Paper or film face stock have to fullfill an important marketing function, are printed on many different equipment (analog and digital), high, medium or small volume.

Home and personal care

Self-adhesive labels used to label shampoo bottles as well as household liquids. Very often a demand for conformable face stocks.

Pharmaceuticals

The accuracy and specification levels of that sector is one of the highest together with the Durables segment. Traceability, quality insurance are as important as readybility of V.I.P. printed information.

Oil & industrial chemicals

The degree of dangerousity of the products labelled, the sometime extremely harsh environment of these labels explain why they are being considered separately. One of the key quality proof is the BS5609 approval. V.I.P. print technology is widely used, thermal transfer (TTR), laser and water-based inkjet.

Logistics and transport

Tracking labels for logistics applications mainly V.I.P. printed with thermal transfer (TTR) or thermal direct (TRD).

Retail

Thermal direct self-adhesive papers dominate this market segment.

Security & Brand Protection

All labels with security features or with functional purposes are found in that market segment. The combination of face stock / print technology / adhesive is key.

Tyre

Label solutions based on different face stock constructions (ranging from Alu foil/paper lamination to special films) and very aggressive adhesives. Print on Demand is done with thermal transfer (TTR), thermal direct (TRD) or inkjet water-based (IJ). Labels are still very ofter pre-printed.

Wine

A growing market where the wet glue applied technology is losing ground against a wide variety of mainly paper substrates.
