New, ultra-thin label film for waterbased inkjet printing

The Sihl Face Stock assortment now offers a new PET based film for aqueous inkjet printing. Thanks to its ultra-thin nature the transparent film can be used for labels, in particular for the pharmaceutical sector.


The range offers high quality coated films with PET, OPP or PP bases, for individualised self adhesive applications: compatible with all common print technologies. Last year the market saw the introduction of the new 60 μm OPP label film, especially developed for aqueous, both dye and pigment, inkjet printing. The latest innovation to join this product range:

The base material is a 23 μm PET which offers excellent colour reproduction and glossy, sharp prints, and as well as an extremely high resistance to water and excellent drying time. A further advantage of the ultra-thin film is its very low rigidity, making it more than ideal for the inkjet printing of small labels i.e. hygiene products or medication.
