RotoMetrics’ exclusive RotoRepel treatment is changing customers’ expectations when it comes to adhesive control on the press, the company says. Additionally, customer feedback indicates not RotoRepel is an excellent no-stick and adhesive control product.
RotoRepel offers expanded benefits that improve performance, including:
- Reduction of adhesive buildup on all adhesive types resulting in less die wear and damage
- Significant reduction in number of press shutdowns so presses run faster and longer
- Dies are easier to clean and return to inventory ready to run again
- Fewer missing labels and a reduction of blocking during rewind reducing waste and inefficiencies
“RotoRepel offers a significant value to our entire production team. Operators report a huge drop in downtime due to reduction of shutdowns for die cleaning and longer runs between roller buildup. Our label rewind/inspection group is very happy because of fewer missing labels and reduced adhesive blocking in finished rolls,” reports a production manager of a label printer.
Additionally, new RotoRepel Rx formulation is compliant with US FDA regulations and is safe for intended use in the conversion of parts, devices and labels. It also meets the requirements for food contact applications.
