Published on 2007-08-10. Author : SpecialChem

STOW, OHIO -- Achieving the sought after no-label-look just got easier with the introduction of MACtac® OptiClear® ICE™, a 2.0-mil clear BOPP film for prime beverage labeling applications. Designed with the leading edge MACtac MP238 adhesive, the new Clear-on-Clear labels provide optimal clarity, exceptional wetout and smooth application on glass or plastic - even over seams.

"Our OptiClear® ICE™ product is perfect for beverage labeling because of the adhesive's clarity and excellent wet-stick properties," said Jim Kisthardt, Prime Product Manager, MACtac Roll Label. "Converters and end users appreciate the durability, appeal and ease of use of this product."

The MACtac MP238 permanent acrylic adhesive has excellent wet-out, wet-stick and open time for repositionability. The facestock is a 2.0-mil clear topcoated BOPP that, when combined with the clear properties of the adhesive, provide the ultimate in clarity even when wet. For added functionality and convenience, the Clear-on-Clear prime films are available on a 1.0-mil polyester liner for high speed beverage and auto-application. Ideal for a wide range of beverage applications, the new Clear-on-Clear prime films from MACtac can also withstand the pasteurization process, which provides end-users with the flexibility of labeling before pasteurizing.
