Inline overlamination gives more vivid colours and higher gloss. It helps to enhance brand image and drive sales – and protects against challenges such as scratching and chemicals.
Dry films or liner-based products are an option, but they use a print station and require pre-slit stock. They also generate waste from backing material.
Self-wound films provide a very valuable alternative, and a new slitter at the main Avery Dennison production site in Luxembourg has just cut lead time dramatically for self-wound materials. It has gone from several weeks to shipment within just two business days in most cases.
Label converters can now improve their inline overlamination substantially. Eric Ide, Senior Marketing Manager, said that self-wound films give very significant benefits:
“These films are fast and easy, and they free up a print station. There are five different materials, which can be used with standard equipment – the only additional recommended change is a simple, low-cost silencer/tension control. Our Self-Wound portfolio allows converters to specify the width they need (on a 1.54m roll), and the most popular product is even available under the Fasson® EXACT™ 3000 service program.”
The self-wound facestock is direct-food approved for dry foodstuffs based on FDA regulation. PP films can be used for overlaminating paper and PP constructions, and for producing booklet labels. PET films allow the overlamination of PET labels and also suit flexible packaging.
