Making the difference in labels
— a success story at Labelexpo Europe
There was a big difference in our presence at Labelexpo in Brussels. In 2017,
’s global team welcomed more customers and brands to the booth than ever before
in our ten years of participation. Read on for some of the highlights of this show.
Recycling trends andfloatable films
With European recycling legislation being
re-worked for 2020, the topic of recycle-
friendly packaging and labels featured
prominently in networking, meetings
and even formal presentations—from
the FINAT press conference to the AWA
Sleeving seminar where
presented our
floatable TDS film.
Previous industry efforts to produce films
that float, yet retain PETG filmclarity,
were not as successful as
’s current
innovation. Proprietary low-density
polyolefin polymers keep the film truly
floatable in recycling sorting streams,
even after adding heavy ink coverage. This
effectively eliminates r-PET contamination
by PETG labels. TDS film’s exceptional
shrink curve is flat inmachine direction
(MD), avoiding the undesirable “smiling
labels” effect, yet still shrinks up to 65% in
transverse direction (TD).
These are just a few innovations and
showcasedwhich certainly
made a difference at Labelexpo and can
make a real difference in your business.
