Polyart substrates encompass digital, outdoor and more

October 1, 2011

New materials for in-mold, self-adhesive and wet glue labels are unveiled by Arjobex.

Polyart WGA 70, specially designed for cold glue cut-and-stack labeling on glass, plastic or metal containers, was introduced by Arjobex at the show. With its cavitated HDPE film and water absorbent coating, Polyart is has a touch and feel close to that of smooth premium coated paper. Its fast dispensing and rapid drying time on bottling lines makes it an ideal plastic solution for wet glue labels, the company says.

Arjobex has also rolled out Polyart Digital for HP Indigo machines. The material has a high quality matte finish, and has been certified for use on Indigo WS4000 and WS6000 series presses by HP.
Polyart LRU, created to replace PVC in outdoor applications, is now available for labels that require resistance to weathering. The chemical composition of LRU has been developed to withstand the degrading influence of UV light and moisture. Typical life expectancy can be three years or more.

Polyart IML is a new generation of high performance in-mold films available for both UV and conventional printing processes. Latest improvements show improved pick and place performance, no label drops, no creasing and blister free performance. Available for both UV and conventional printing technologies. Polyart IML is designed to optimize costs and efficiencies and offer eye-catching appeal for branded products.
