Production Capabilities - In-Mould Labelling (IML)
In-Mould labelling (otherwise known as IML) is a cost effective way of decorating tubs, containers and lids. Supplied either off the reel or as a cut and stack label typically applied to injection and blow-moulded plastic packaging. In addition our recent innovation R-IML® (a totally removable inmould label) could enable the production of food grade polypropylene. More
There are a variety of uses and benefits to this label type which include;
- Low cost
- Reduce container weight
- High quality graphics. All sides can be decorated from one label.
- Resist humidity – ideal for refrigerated or frozen products.
- Fully recyclable – package and label produced from the same material.
- High print quality
- Gloss or mottled surface
- No adhesion issues
Our off-line inmould label converters are capable of producing over 20 million square metres of material per annum. Housed in our Runcorn site in two specially conditioned rooms in-mould labels can be produced on a range of substrates with various ink and varnish combinations to achieve the desired finish.
