More news about ‘green’ substrates
If Europe’s labelstock manufacturers were to invent a common slogan, it would probably be “anything you can make I can make greener.” Britain’s Smith & McLaurin, it seems, is not just climbing on the bandwagon but pushing its way into the driver’s seat. Its latest labelstocks use a home compostable adhesive in conjunction with a 100 percent recycled, environmentally friendly face material. To back up their claim, Smith & McLaurin have submitted the product to US based research organization Beta Analysis, whose test results showed it to have a 58 percent “green” carbon content, as against only 3 percent for standard adhesives.
