Henkel to show MiraFoil at Labelexpo

September 13, 2011

The company’s commercial and technical team will present a variety of pressure-sensitive adhesives, UV coatings and lacquers at this year’s Labelexpo Europe.

Düsseldorf, Germany-based Henkel, which produces products for the laundry and home care, cosmetics and toiletries, and adhesive technologies market, will present several products at this year’s Labelexpo Europe. The company will have on-stand pressure sensitive adhesives, UV coatings and lacquers, including the metallic gloss MiraFoil, Duro-TAK adhesives, and Technocure adhesives. The company will also show adhesive products for general, removable and alkali wash-off labels, specifically designed for the label industry.

According to the company, MiraFoil contains highly reflective, micro-fine aluminum flakes and gives paper and substrates an appearance similar to that of a silver foil. The UV-curing lacquer is available in silver, gold and copper and is overprintable either inline or offline.

Duro-TAK adhesives are designed to maintain their strength and durability under adverse conditions, including rough weather and chemical exposure. According to the company, Duro-TAK UV 4000 is well balanced in adhesion and cohesion and is suitable for nonpolar substrates.

Henkel will also present the Technocure range of products at this year’s Labelexpo. Products from this line include: Technocure PS 4116, which is a UV labeling adhesive designed for removability; Technocure PS 4105, which is an alkali wash-off product; and Technocure PS 4901 and 4907, which are designed for multilayer and promotional labels, stickers and coupons.

Henkel, which ranks among the Fortune Global 500, will be available at stand 6J65. This year’s Labelexpo Europe takes place in Brussels from September 28 – October 1.
