ExxonMobil Chemical will introduce several new new Label-LyteÂ film technologies for a range of labeling applications at booth 829 at LabelExpo Americas (September 11-13; Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Chicago).
One of the new technologies being launched at LabelExpo is the Label-Lyte 50ML580 OPP film for pressure-sensitive labels (PSL) requiring a high-sheen, metalized appearance.
The film is targeted at applications such as beverages, health- and beauty care, and household products and features a proprietary coating over the metalized surface to improve metal adhesion and protection.
The film's design helps to prevent the formation of pinholes and crazing and is compatible with UV flexo, letterpress, screen and offset systems, as well as water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure systems.
The top coating provides print receptivity for a range of ink systems and consistent printing across multiple technologies.
The adhesive surface is designed for broad functionality and adhesive system flexibility, and eliminates metal transfer, which is common in adhesive-side metalized films, the company stated. The film also exhibits "excellent" stiffness for automatic label dispensing.
"The new Label-Lyte 50ML580 film meets the needs of converters looking for high-speed, reliable press performance and brand owners who require high-quality, consistent metalized labels to enhance product promotion," said Kevin Frydryk, global labels film market development manager, in the news release.
ExxonMobil will also introduce at LabelExpo a high-yield thermal transfer film for pressure-sensitive labeling applications, and a clear, lightweight oriented polyolefin film that offers "excellent" converting characteristics, conformability and flexibility for PSL applications, the company said.
