LINTEC at Labelexpo Europe 2017: Unveils Four New Adhesive Materials for Labels

Published on 2017-09-27. Author : SpecialChem

LINTEC Corporation has announced to launch four newly developed label adhesive materials sequentially from October 2017. The new products are being displayed at Labelexpo Europe 2017, one of the world’s largest trade shows in the label field.

Newly Developed Label Adhesives

The following are the adhesive materials to be launched:

Ultra-low Migration labelstocks

Super-strength Adhesive Labelstocks

  • Characterized by very strong adhesiveness that enables not only firm affixing to surfaces to which labels are difficult to affix such as rough surfaces, polypropylene, and polycarbonates, making it suitable for uses such as warning labels for electrical devices and security labels.
  • In addition, strong adhesion between two adhesive surfaces makes this labelstock suitable for baggage tags.

Ultra-low Migration Labelstocks

  • With an extremely low content of low molecular weight components that can permeate low-barrier plastics and result in contamination of contained liquids, this adhesive is ideal for use with medical and pharmaceutical products. 
  • Demand for low-migration labelstocks is expected to increase as medical and pharmaceutical industries increasingly use light and durable plastic containers instead of high-barrier glass containers that break more easily.

3D Comfortable Labelstocks

  • These labelstocks are extremely thin, with a total thickness of 45 μm for the facestock and adhesive, and adhere firmly to surfaces with complex curves or other irregular features. 
  • The facestock is a specialized, non-PVC film, while the label is transparent and weather-resistant, suitable even for outdoor use.
  • The labelstocks are ideal for decorations on racing cars and motorcycles as well as labels on scale models, soft packages and more.

Laser-markable labelstocks

  • These labelstocks consist of a transparent film facestock and a white adhesive that goes black when irradiated with an yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser.
  • As a result, lettering can be produced with laser irradiation on the undersurface of the label.
  • The lettering surface, a part of the adhesive rather than the facestock, is not exposed, which makes it highly resistant to chemicals and abrasion and prevents tampering.
  • This makes the labelstocks ideal for name plates, warning labels, in-process control labels, vehicle identification number (VIN) labels and more.
