August 28, 2012

Label-Lyte 50ML580 is a metalized, surface-printable OPP film for pressure sensitive applications.

ExxonMobil Chemical has introduced new Label-Lyte 50ML580, a metalized, surface-printable oriented polypropylene (OPP) film for pressure sensitive label (PSL) applications requiring a metallic appearance and high-speed performance. Label-Lyte 50ML580 OPP film is well-suited for applications such as beverages, health and beauty care, and household products, the company says.

The film features a proprietary ExxonMobil Chemical coating over the metalized surface which the company says provides improved metal adhesion and protection, and also helps to prevent the formation of pinholes and crazing.  

Label-Lyte 50ML580 film is compatible with UV flexo, letterpress, screen and offset systems, as well as water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure systems.The adhesive surface is designed for broad functionality and adhesive system flexibility, and eliminates metal transfer which is common in adhesive-side metalized films. According to the company, it also exhibits excellent stiffness for automatic label dispensing.

“The new Label-Lyte 50ML580 film meets the needs of converters looking for high-speed, reliable press performance and brand owners who require high-quality, consistent metalized labels to enhance product promotion,” says Kevin Frydryk, global labels film market development manager.
