Label washes off the bottle during the cleaning process in a washing range of 60Þ-80ÞC, allowing a new label to be used for each bottle trip. Matches label performance and appliance speeds of nonreturnable p-s label constructions (to 1ꯠ bpm) and uses existing print methods such as screen, gravure, UV flexo, letterpress, and combination printing, along with providing no-label look. Withstands filling and distribution environments, including ice-water baths for 72 hours.
