Acucote Inc.: Thinner BOPP films
Extensive film line now includes three new polypropylenes.
Acucote Inc. introduces thinner films to its current BOPP product line. These additions are economic alternatives to current marketplace selections. Offering raw material cost savings, potential efficiency cost reductions and an improved environmental footprint; these downgauged films extend Acucote’s prime and variable print BOPP labelstocks.
New additions to Acucote’s prime label offerings include the 2.4 mil White Topcoat and the 2.6 White Vision Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil White Topcoat is a cost-effective substitute for Acucote’s current 2.6 mil White Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil maintains the same opacity and topcoating as the 2.6 mil.
The 2.6 White Vision Gloss is a mid gloss option between high gloss and matte finish facestocks.
For the variable print market, Acucote now stocks 2.6 mil White Premium Thermal Transfer. Serving as an alternative to the 3 mil White Thermal Transfer, this facestock has a smoother surface and results in sharper imaging through thermal transfer printers and much improved flexo printability.
Products are offered through AcuChoice program with GPX adhesive on a 40# liner. GPX is a water-based acrylic general purpose adhesive designed to adhere to a variety of surface applications. These new offerings are available No Trim with a minimum order quantity of 3” x 5,000’. Products are initially stocked in North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Additional adhesive and liner combinations are available on a custom coat basis.
