New additions to Acucote’s prime label offerings include the 2.4 mil White Topcoat and the 2.6 White Vision Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil White Topcoat is a cost-effective substitute for Acucote’s current 2.6 mil White Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil maintains the same opacity and topcoating as the 2.6 mil.
The 2.6 White Vision Gloss is a mid gloss option between high gloss and matte finish facestocks. For the variable print market, Acucote now stocks 2.6 mil White Premium Thermal Transfer. Serving as an alternative to the 3 mil White Thermal Transfer, this facestock is designed to have a smoother surface and "results in sharper imaging through thermal transfer printers and much improved flexo printability."
