ExxonMobil Chemical has introduced new Label-Lyte 50ML580 metalized, surface-printable oriented polypropylene (OPP) film for pressure sensitive label (PSL) applications requiring a consistent, attractive metallic appearance and high-speed performance. Label-Lyte 50ML580 OPP film is well suited for applications such as beverages, health and beauty care, and household products.
The film features a proprietary ExxonMobil
Chemical coating over the metalized surface which provides improved metal
adhesion and protection. The film’s design also helps to prevent the formation
of pinholes and crazing.
The top coating provides excellent
print receptivity for a range of ink systems and consistent printing across
multiple technologies. Label-Lyte
50ML580 film is compatible with UV flexo, letterpress, screen and offset
systems, as well as water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure systems.
The adhesive surface is designed for
broad functionality and adhesive system flexibility, and eliminates metal transfer
which is common in adhesive-side metalized films. The film also exhibits
excellent stiffness for automatic label dispensing.
50ML580 film meets the needs of converters looking for high-speed, reliable
press performance and brand owners who require high-quality, consistent
metalized labels to enhance product promotion,” says Kevin Frydryk, global
labels film market development manager.
ExxonMobil Chemical’s controlled
manufacturing process for Label-Lyte 50ML580 film from manufacture through
metalizing to top coating provides consistent appearance and quality. This can
help eliminate expensive and complex outsourcing of product supply.
