HIGH YIELD, MATTE WHITE, IN-MOULD LABELLING FILM
Innovia Films is launching RayoForm™ EUP60, a white BOPP film for in-mould labelling (IML). Produced in Europe at one of our state-of-the art production facilities, EUP60 is a very high opacity, high yield product, having a density as low as 0.55 g/cm3. Combined with its specially formulated and printable matte surface, EUP60 is engineered to give outstanding high-speed sheet feeding and adhesion for both UV and oxidative inks.
EUP60 is designed with special features that make it suitable for any shape container or lid without risk of distortion to the container or lid. This film is perfect for use on small-to-medium size, thin or thick wall PP or PE containers, providing a tactile ‘soft-touch’ finish after moulding. It also means a finished, polyolefin mono-material container can be produced, making the final pack fully recyclable, and meeting the Plastic Recyclers Europe packaging design recommendations.
Alasdair McEwen, Product Manager, Labels explains “As well as the technical performance of EUP60, we can produce reels for the customer that are longer than anything else in the marketplace. More linear metres in a reel leads to less changeovers and improved printing efficiency, with printing speeds of up to 14,000 sheets per hour being realised. This applies to either roll-to-roll or roll-to-sheet conversion processes and customers can choose either horizontal or large diameter vertical reel packing, depending on their requirements”.
The large diameter rolls that Innovia can supply, means less roll changes and higher efficiencies for converters as well as a dramatic reduction in packaging waste.
McEwen adds “Our 5-layer film technology allows us to produce this film with the optimum combination of yield, opacity, whiteness and printability, ensuring excellent off-press ink adhesion with either traditional or UV offset inks”.
