Fasson adds three wine substrates to eco-friendly portfolio

August 5, 2008

The new materials incorporate post-consumer waste paper, recyclable liners and wash-away adhesive.

The Fasson Roll North America division of Avery Dennison, located in Mentor, OH, USA, has added three “eco-friendly” products to its wine substrate portfolio, bringing to 13 the number of eco-friendly products and adhesives currently available through the division.

The new products are Fasson Estate Label #10 Recycled, Fasson Classic Crest Recycled Solar White and Fasson Matte Litho Recycled. They join a product portfolio that includes coated, uncoated and specialty papers, clear-on-clear and metalized films and digitally topcoated papers.

The new wine portfolio facestocks are made from 30 percent post-consumer waste, meaning they use fibers previously used by consumers that have been turned into paper. They are paired with a 1.2 mil PET recyclable liner and Fasson S100R, a wash-away adhesive that allows consumers or recyclers to cleanly remove labels from bottles after immersing them in water hotter than 100° F.
