PPG showcases durable Teslin labelstock


Teslin substrate is a highly printable synthetic material that excels in durable applications.

PPG is showcasing Teslin labelstock at Labelexpo Americas 2018. Teslin substrate is a highly printable synthetic material that excels in applications that demand a tough, high-performance material. It is available in four standard label stock varieties – General-Purpose Permanent, Ultimate Bond, General-Purpose Removable and BS 5609-Certified. It also can be produced in custom configurations for nearly any label application.

Teslin substrate contains micropores that absorb inks, toners, adhesives and coatings, locking them into its structure for long-lasting durability and security. This characteristic makes Teslin labelstock ideal for applications that include GHS-compliant chemical containers, brand protection, tamper-evident security, medical/pharmaceutical products and high-end wine and spirits.

Teslin labelstock is widely compatible with print technologies, from digital inkjet, laser and thermal transfer to flexographic and offset. It offers bubble-free application and provides a long-lasting adhesive bond that can endure extreme conditions. The static-dissipative nature of Teslin labelstock helps minimize static buildup during digital printing, improving throughput and print quality. The product also enhances the security of printed text through its ability to absorb and lock in inks and toners with no additional processing or expense.

“We are showcasing a variety of printed samples of Teslin labelstock at Labelexpo Americas, so converters, printers and packaging specialists can touch and feel the print quality,” says Fabrizio Mandingorra, PPG global segment manager, Teslin labels. “They also can pick up a free copy of ‘The Highly Unofficial Label Industry Guide to Rosemont.’ This convenient guide features details of local eateries with personal recommendations from some well-known individuals in the label industry.”
