Acucote Inc.: Thinner BOPP films

Extensive film line now includes three new polypropylenes.
FILED IN:  Package Component  > Films
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.
