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.
