Introducing VANISH™ – the truly invisible label »
Polypropylene (PP) films are suitable for applications requiring resistance to water, oil and/or chemicals. They are typically used in rigid bottle applications in the home and personal care segment.
In personal care labeling applications, items like shampoo bottles are usually stored in the bathroom, which is typically a warm and humid environment. This places two stringent requirements on the label. First, the face film must provide absolute water resistance to guarantee long-term readability and good looks. Second, the adhesive must withstand shampoo and water to guarantee that the label stays in place.
Polyethylene (PE) films are suitable for applications like this that require resistance to water, oil and/or chemicals. They conform well to package contours and flex well with squeezable packaging.
Raflex Plus films denote quality and class and are every bit the aesthetic equal of PP. And with excellent conformability, squeezability and printability, these films combine the best of PP and PE in a single product.
In terms of functionality, Raflex Plus films provide trouble-free die cutting and dispensing as well as the optimized stiffness for label sizes typical in personal care labeling. What's more, their performance on curved PE bottles puts Raflex Plus films on a level superior to PP and as close as it gets to PE.
