March 8, 2010

The new paper and polypropylene materials are available in the company’s Trimless program.

Spinnaker Coating has introduced Semi Gloss Layflat, a paper substrate engineered to remain stable and flat after flexo and laser printing. The company also has launched 4 mil TC Matte White Polypropylene.

The company says that the Semi Gloss Layflat is ideal for businesses that would like to print a large quantity of labels for economy and ease of color matching using flexography, and then customize the labels by adding variable data with a laser printer. The product has archival quality and is appropriate to use for scrapbooking, and is well suited for hand-applied labels, boutique food labels, address labels, ID labels, scrapbooking/archival documents, and point of purchase products. The material meets requirements of ANSI/NISO Standard (Z39.48-1992) and Photographic Activity Test (ISO 18916). Semi Gloss Layflat is available on Spinnaker’s Trimless program.

The 4 mil TC Matte White Polypropylene features extra thickness, which allows it to have success in thermal transfer machines, according to Spinnaker. The stiffness is ideal for print-and-apply and print-and-present label applications, In addition to thermal transfer, it can also be flexo, letterpress, and screen printed. The facestock is available Trimless with adhesive options.

Spinnaker Coating is based in Troy, OH, USA.
