Overview of Labelexpo Europe 2017
Date: September 25 (Mon.) to 28 (Thurs.)
Venue: Brussels Expo, Belgium
LINTEC Booth: Hall 3 3C 15
LINTEC Press Conference: 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., September 25, held in the Brussels Expo Press Office Theater

Super-strength adhesive labelstocks: Extreme adhesion for rough surfaces

Characterized by very strong adhesiveness that enables not only firm affixing to surfaces to which labels are difficult to affix such as rough surfaces, polypropylene, and polycarbonates, making it suitable for uses such as warning labels for electrical devices and security labels. In addition, strong adhesion between two adhesive surfaces makes this labelstock suitable for baggage tags.

Ultra low-migration labelstocks: Safe for display labels on plastic containers

With an extremely low content of low molecular weight components that can permeate low-barrier plastics and result in contamination of contained liquids, this adhesive is ideal for use with medical and pharmaceutical products. Demand for low-migration labelstocks is expected to increase as medical and pharmaceutical industries increasingly use light and durable plastic containers instead of high-barrier glass containers that break more easily.

Note: Tatsuya Tsukida, LINTEC's Executive Officer, General Manager, Research & Development Division and Research Center is scheduled to give a presentation about these labelstocks at the Labelexpo Press Office from 11:00 to 11:30 am on 25 September (Mon.).

3D comfortable labelstocks: Suitable for three-dimensionally curved and irregular surfaces

These labelstocks are extremely thin, with a total thickness of 45 μm for the facestock and adhesive, and adhere firmly to surfaces with complex curves or other irregular features. The facestock is a specialized, non-PVC film, while the label is transparent and weather-resistant, suitable even for outdoor use. The labelstocks are ideal for decorations on racing cars and motorcycles as well as labels on scale models, soft packages and more.

Laser-markable labelstocks: Resistant to chemicals and abrasion

These labelstocks consist of a transparent film facestock and a white adhesive that goes black when irradiated with an yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser. As a result, lettering can be produced with laser irradiation on the undersurface of the label. The lettering surface, a part of the adhesive rather than the facestock, is not exposed, which makes it highly resistant to chemicals and abrasion and prevents tampering. This makes the labelstocks ideal for name plates, warning labels, in-process control labels, vehicle identification number (VIN) labels and more.
