The new labelstocks feature a strong, oil-absorbing adhesive that allows them to be easily applied to oily surfaces that would typically need to be cleaned before application—reducing production time and material costs.
“The new oil-tolerant labelstock offerings are a testament to Mactac’s focus on innovation and ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of businesses across industries,” says Kim Hensley, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “Historically, it has been a challenge for brands to keep labels in place on oily products. By developing our new oil-absorbing labelstocks, we can offer brands a simple, yet effective labeling solution for even the greasiest surfaces.”
Mactac’s oil-absorbing labelstocks include:
- LTCOT5040, a 2-mil top-coated white gloss polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner.
- LTCOT5050, a 2-mil top-coated clear polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 60# blue glassine liner.
- LTCOT8060, a 3.1-mil top coated white matte polypropylene film coated on one side with an oil tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner.
