New products include iO2xBloc high oxygen barrier print webs, Auth-N-Tech brand protection films and Sofsens films.

As part of Labelexpo Europe, acpo has recognized the flexible packaging and label printing industry’s desire for new solutions and has developed several products. These include: O2xBloc high oxygen barrier print webs, Auth-N-Tech brand protection films and Sofsens films with a soft to the touch feel.

acpo has expanded its coated film product offerings to flexible packaging converters and brand owners, now offering high end barrier coated films under the O2xBloc trademark. The O2xBloc films were developed to meet the most stringent oxygen barrier requirements for flexible packaging. These clear films will give converters a cost effective alternative to multi-layer and PVDC coated barrier films while providing ultra-high oxygen barrier properties, flex crack and thermal resistance to support high speed filling on packaging lines and pouch converting equipment. Excellent print reception will eliminate the need for a third layer, which will support package light weighting, economics and efficiency.

To help combat growing counterfeiting issues - which costs brand owners and US businesses over $250 billion annually - acpo has developed multiple overlaminates with embedded security features. The Auth-N-Tech line gives brand owners several options, including hidden customized messages, visual and audible authentication or layered technologies, making anti-counterfeit measures easy to implement and verify.   

With a smooth velvet-like touch, the Sofsens line provides a high-end look and feel along with high durability and print protection. The matte finish boasts thermal transfer printability and is able to be spot varnished for an enhanced appeal. Ideal for luxury packaging and health and beauty product, Sofsens is a tactile treat for the senses.
