ExxonMobil has introduced new products in its Label-Lyte films for labels.
Label-Lyte 40LL539 oriented PP film is a clear, two-side-coated film that allows downgauging opportunities for lighter weight labels with a glossy "no label" look.
The company said the film has been designed for demanding pressure sensitive label (PSL) applications which require outstanding ink adhesion and adhesive anchorage. Applications include beverages, health and beauty products, pharmaceuticals, general consumer goods, household products and pet food.
The coated print surface of the film is compatible with UV, flexo, letterpress, screen and offset systems. The film is also compatible with solvent- and water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure, and hot and cold foil stamping.
The film was launched with other products at the LabelExpo Americas fair in Chicago, US, last month.
Label-Lyte 50ML580 is a surface-printable OPP film with a top-coated metal print surface for improved metal adhesion and protection. ExxonMobil said it has "excellent" print receptivity for a broad base of ink systems: UV flexo, letterpress, screen and offset systems, as well as water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure systems.
Label-Lyte 65LT500 thermal transfer (TTR) film has a matte white finish, and is deisgned for PSL applications including consumer durables, automotive, household chemicals and detergents, pharmaceutical, retail shelf marking (barcodes), plumbing and other industrial applications.
ExxonMobil said the film has a better yield compared with widely used films of 75 micron and above.
