Klöckner Pentaplast Group showcases high performing label films Pentalabel® _ClearFloat™ and Pentalabel® LV PETG with Y460 Coating.
Pentalabel ClearFloat films meet the Design for Recycling Guidelines as set by the Association of Postconsumer Plastics Recyclers, providing a higher yield of PET container recycling. This new family of films is engineered to offer high performing shrink percentages for optimal design freedom and to impact the visual presentation of the product due to the films’ superior clarity. These films are available from kp global sites in Europe and North America.
The fast-growing ClearFloat technology is ideal for new or redesigned packaging, including those with highly contoured shapes. Applications include consumer packaged goods using PET bottle for beverage, dairy, food, health and beauty, home and garden and household. In addition, this technology includes the capability of using ink adhesion that passes APR label protocol with gravure, flexographic, digital and rotary offset printing processes.
Meanwhile, the extended Pentalabel® film product line includes Pentalabel® LV PETG films with Y460 coating, presenting high-resolution digital printing solutions for shrink-sleeve packaging. This coating affords the durability to be converted into a seamed sleeve that can be applied either by hand or mechanically at high speeds. The coating’s clear overprint varnish (OPV) applied on top of the ink surface provides the proper slip characteristics that allow for high-speed application. A propriety solvent achieves consistent welding of the polymer to itself using specified conditions.
Y460 coated LV PETG film reduces haze versus other options available for digital printing. The Pentalabel LV PETG film with the Y460 coating has a three-star rating from the Rochester Institute of Technology and is a certified substrate for HP Indigo ws6000, ws6600, ws6800, ws4050/4500, ws2000, ws4000, ws4600 and ws20,000 series digital presses.
