HERMA Produces High-quality Labels Featuring its Low-migration Adhesive

Published on 2014-06-19. Author : SpecialChem

HERMA is now presenting a special Inkprint collection. This self-adhesive material allows print shops to produce low- and very low-volume label runs on extremely economical inkjet printers with water-based inks. Whereas conventional self-adhesive materials are generally adequate for UV-curable inks, water-based ink requires a special paper coating that can absorb the ink better. The two grades included in the range, HERMAinkprint glossy (grade 211) and HERMAinkprint matt (grade 137), deliver outstanding results on standard inkjet printers, such as Canon, Epson, HP etc. with both sheet and web printing. They are also extremely suitable for ultra-fast Memjet technology which, with its static, page-wide print-head, combines the advantages of an inkjet printer with those of a page printer. Even at speeds of over 300 millimeters per second, images, codes and identification symbols can be printed crystal-clear and distortion-free in conjunction with the new HERMAinkprint range.

Low-migration adhesive

Both grades feature HERMA's versatile 62Gpt adhesive. Its multilayer structure paves the way for the labels to be used in a wide variety of applications – while at the same time offering excellent processability and a compelling price/performance ratio. Their uses range from carton labelling to labels for cool and moist food packagings. The adhesive is further distinguished by its very good migration behavior and has been approved by the German test institute ISEGA for direct contact with dry, moist and fatty foods (reduction factor 2). In conjunction with honey glassine release liner (grade 523, for rolls) and coated kraft release liner (grade 512, for sheet formats), the label stock offers superior properties for processing on all typical flat-bed and rotary die-cutting machines.


Located in Filderstadt near Stuttgart (Germany), HERMA GmbH is a leading European specialist in self-adhesive technology. In the 2013 fiscal year, the HERMA Group generated sales of around €261.2 million with 850 employees in three divisions - Self-adhesive Materials, Labels and Labelling Machines. The export ratio was more than 55 %.
