New Squeezable Rayoface Films
Innovia Films Ltd., Wigton, UK, has added new down gauged grades to their Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) squeezable Rayoface label facestock range. CZFA51 and WZFA51 are clear and white films respectively. According to the manufacturer, these films offer customers the opportunity to save time and money for every step of the value chain if they switch from using PE85 to Innovia’s BOPP films. In addition, they gain a squeezable film with market leading clarity for ‘no-label’ look applications and perfect gloss for outstanding shelf appeal.
According to Richard Southward, Global Product Manager, Labels at Innovia Films, the benefits that can be gained by switching from PE85 are substantial. As Innovia's new films are thinner, the printer will get more square meters per reel, which means more printed labels per reel and increased up-time on press. It reduces the number of reels required by up to 60%, effectively decreasing the number of pallets and the storage space required by half. This results in less packaging and reel handling costs. The reduction in label material weight means that transport and logistics carbon footprint can be reduced by up to 45%.
Squeezable films are popular with Brand Managers, especially in the Home & Personal Care sector. Labels produced from these films maintain their consistency and quality throughout the life of the container on which they are applied, whatever format they are. Southward adds “The added bonus is that they are also food contact compliant under FDA and EU regulations and offer game-changing branding impact with their unprecedented clarity.”
