acpo introduces thermal overlaminate with matte finish

May 2, 2011

The linerless overlaminate offers high acid, chemical and oil resistance.

Self-wound overlaminate film manufacturer acpo ltd. has introduced 531T, a matte polypropylene thermal transfer printable PSA roll label film. 531T is a linerless overlaminate which provides label surface protection and thermal transfer printability for variable data on pre-printed labels. In addition, the low glare surface of 531T facilitates bar code scanning and offers a dull yet attractive label appearance. Constructed with a 1-mil matte biaxially-oriented polypropylene film and 0.5 mil water emulsion acrylic adhesive, 531T offers excellent acid, chemical and oil resistance, according to the company.

In conjunction with the launch of 531T, acpo has updated its thermal transfer overlaminate product line with ribbon recommendations and chemical testing data for optimum overlaminate and ribbon compatibility performance. An expanded ribbon recommendation matrix and chemical resistance chart is available at the acpo website.

Located in Oak Harbor, OH, USA, acpo ltd. is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company which creates overlaminates for the label printing and flexible packaging industries.
