We are pleased to be part of LabelExpo Europe 2023 in Brussels again this year. From 11-14 September, we will welcome our customers and partners in Hall 6 Stand C15 and present solutions and innovations from the Label FACESTOCK, ARTYSIO Flexible Packaging and Tags segments.
In the Label FACESTOCK area, we will be showing our two new products PICOFILM WO-80 matt ZM1 (8002) and PICOFILM WO-110 matt ZM1 (8003) for the first time. The ZM1 coating is a new matt, highly resistant coating for water-based inkjet printing.
It is also resistant to a wide range of chemicals and at the same time shows a high quality print image. This makes the products suitable for many demanding label applications, for example in home & personal care, pharmaceutical applications or in the oil and chemical industry.
When transporting goods by sea, long distances have to be covered, often in extreme weather conditions. Labels are used to reliably label goods of any class, e.g. also hazardous substances or toxic chemicals, according to GHS. The approval of the ZM1 coating on the Epson C6500 and C4000 printers in accordance with the globally recognised BS5609 Section 3 standard guarantees reliable, resistant labelling for such applica- tions.
Labels on Demand
With the ENDURO and PICOFILM ranges, Sihl offers solutions for decentralised on-demand printing of tear- resistant labels in short runs. This makes it possible to flexibly design blank labels without pre-printing and at the same time fulfil customer requests for personalisation.
We are introducing a new application area for our ENDURO Premium 150 matt (6900) and ENDURO Effect 140 Water improved (6912): wristbands for access control and identification. These material strips, which are worn around the wrist, facilitate, for example, the identification of guests at events, concerts, in water parks, etc. As our products are very hard-wearing and tear-resistant, they are ideal for this area of application and offer many advantages over other materials.
Sustainability plays a major role for the entire range. We are constantly working on our products to make them more sustainable and conserve resources. For example, our ENDURO Classic 145 K (6946) now convinces with a PCR content of 90%. It is also PVC-free and FSC® certified.
In the area of flexible packaging you can see our new „Pack&Print“ solution. Here, stand-up pouches are made from our ARTYSIO film, which can then be individually printed using aqueous inkjet or laser processes and finally filled. This sets new standards in the industry for small, highly flexible customer orders of up to 10,000 pieces. In addition, transport and storage costs are saved and the delivery time is shortened considerably.
No more dirty trolleys, belts or suitcase handles thanks to PRESSURETAC! Safe and clean labelling plays a major role in the airline and logistics industry. Standard labels not only leave a lot of waste due to the peeled-off silicone papers, but also usually leave unsightly and unhygienic residues when they are removed. Here PRES- SURETAC offers the perfect solution: linerless, self-adhesive paper for loop tag labelling. The basic principle is based on cold seal technology. When two ends of such a back-coated material are brought together with pressure, the high cohesion causes them to stick together permanently. The resulting loop tag sticks only to itself, back to back, without any additional waste.
