FLEXcon, a provider of adhesive coating and laminating products, has announced the addition of products for prime labeling applications using the company’s new, higher-shear, permanent acrylic adhesive.
Available as part of the optiFLEX, optiFLEX EZ, optiFLEX CONCEAL, optiFLEX CONFORMmax, THINflex and DigiPRO PRIME product lines - in addition to the original sureFLEX line - FLEXcon’s new generation V-01 adhesive offers "problem-free performance by running without buildup on converting or dispensing equipment." It is designed to provide excellent adhesion to a variety of container types, including low-surface energy HDPE. It also offers open time for clean removability of misapplied labels, allowing the container to be salvaged and re-labeled. V-01 resists moisture and exposure to product contents and passes soapy squeeze testing, making it ideal for the health and beauty, food and beverage and household chemical markets. It is compliant with FDA 175.105 for indirect food contact.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to our customers needs and then develop products that will not only help them capture new business but also reduce cost and to run efficiently,” says John Bennett, vice president, FLEXcon. “V-01 is our answer to the many challenges our customers face in supplying the consumer packaging market with competitive pricing and superior performance both on the press and in the end use.”
FLEXcon’s V-01 adhesive is available on a wide range of films for use on a variety of container types including rigid, semi-squeeze and full-squeeze containers. In addition, products are available for a variety of print technologies, including HP Indigo, UV, solvent, emulsion and hot stamp, to name a few. Label substrates with V-01 are readily available, many in Quick-Ship and/or pre-slit inventory for fast delivery.
