Sun Chemical and acpo will showcase an expanded offering to promote smart and cost-efficient solutions for narrow web and flexible packaging converting at Labelexpo Europe. The two companies have worked together to develop coated films for the narrow web and labels market and will showcase the jointly developed films at Labelexpo for the first time. By combining acpo’s self-wound films and Sun Chemical’s SunBar Aerobloc oxygen barrier coatings, any label printer with a lamination unit will be able to print and convert these films into pouches, bags or roll stock, for packaging oxygen sensitive products such as nuts, snacks, nutrition bars, meat, cheese, spices and pet food. This can be done without the need to invest in new machinery. The Aerobloc oxygen barrier coating will be directly coated onto acpo film, making it as simple as using a standard film. SunBar Aerobloc oxygen barrier coatings are chlorine free, easy to recycle and highly resistant to flex cracking, which results in package barrier loss. They also offer converters cost-effective, durable, sustainable films that support long shelf life, creating a smooth, pinhole-free and flexible layer.
