The film features a proprietary coating over the metalized surface to provide improved metal adhesion and protection. The film’s design also helps to prevent the formation of pinholes and crazing.  

The top coating provides print receptivity for a range of ink systems and consistent printing across multiple technologies. Label-Lyte 50ML580 is compatible with UV flexo, letterpress, screen and offset systems, as well as water-based flexo and solvent-based gravure systems.

The adhesive surface is designed for broad functionality and adhesive system flexibility, and eliminates metal transfer. The film also exhibits the stiffness desired for automatic label dispensing.
