Avery Dennison Corporation: Ultra-thin label liner
Avery Dennison’s ThinStream™ combines an ultra-thin PET label liner material with patented machine technology to produce a liner only 12 microns thick.
With a thinner profile ThinStream yields 17% more labels per roll and reduces liner waste. The modular equipment used with the liner material can operate as a stand-alone unit or be added to an existing press line without altering the production layout. The ThinStream die-cutting technology employs a delam/relam process, a unique web control system, and chilled dies, so the liner is never touched. It can die-cut labels at high speeds with quality and registration control. The ThinStream die-cutting head eliminates die strikes and web breaks for uninterrupted productivity.
