Polykote, Arca introduce new linerless application

November 1, 2010

The system employs material with a non-tacky self-adhesive stock that its activated by a focused heat source.

Polykote Corporation and Arca Automation have joined forces to introduce what they describe as a complete system for print-and-apply linerless label applications.

Utilizing Polykote’s Silgon Linerless Technology with Arca Automation’s Bi-Fuel Linerless label applicator, the companies are demonstrating the system at Pack Expo in Chicago this week.

Polykote says Silgon label material costs less than standard linered as well as traditional linerless labelstock. The system on display introduces a print-and-apply system that allows for non-tacky self-adhesive linerless labelstock to be activated pre-application utilizing a focused heat source.

Polykote is based in Easton, PA, USA. Arca Automation is in Cherry Hill, NJ, USA.
