MACtac expands opaque labelstock line

March 11, 2011

New facestocks include thermal transfer, high gloss and semi-gloss.

MACtac Roll Label has expanded its portfolio of opaque labelstocks with several new facestocks, including thermal transfer, high-gloss options, and a semi-gloss. Featuring a charcoal gray, opaque primer for an end product that ensures 99 percent opacity, MACtac’s opaque labelstocks provide cover-up while maintaining the whiteness and brightness of the sheets’ facestocks. Typical end use includes healthcare, promotional, corrective and retail over-labeling applications.

“MACtac has served this market for a number of years, but we’ve recently worked to perfect our primer and expand our facestock options to offer our customers solutions driven by their need for variety and value,” says Kathy Magyar, marketing manager, MACtac Roll Label. “Our new product offering covers both, from facestocks for blank variable information printing to glossy stocks for high-end graphic printing.”

Featuring several MACtac adhesives, including ST95, a general purpose, permanent adhesive with aggressive initial tack and excellent ultimate adhesion and mandrel hold, MACtac opaque products feature a semi-bleached, 2.5-mil super-calendered kraft liner, excellent for diecutting and stripping.
