HERMA Announces New Label Film

HERMA is further expanding its range of particularly lightweight self-adhesive label materials, the so-called Thin Range. The latest addition is the HERMA PP white light (grade 884) plastic film in combination with the special film adhesive 62Xpc.

The film weighs only 37 grams per square metre, making it more than 15 percent lighter than a standard film, which typically weighs 44g/sqm.

‘In terms of sustainability, this is a considerable leap, especially as this also results in a lower transport weight,’ said Hendrik Kehl, Product Manager at HERMA. In terms of functional quality, the new film is practically the same as its heavier ‘sister’, especially in standard applications. Due to its special treatment, the glossy surface of HERMA PP white light results in good print quality in conventional printing processes, such as UV flexographic printing.

Very attractive, glossy and opaque labels can be produced with HERMA PP white light. The pearlescent appearance of the film gives the label its special look. This PP film is particularly suitable for the labelling of cosmetic and personal care products, household cleaners, etc. as well as for applications requiring weather and chemical resistance. The adhesive 62Xpc used here was developed for film labels.

The use of the 2-layer technology and ideally matched adhesive layers achieves very good further processing properties with well above average adhesive properties. Its good flow properties in combination with the high transparency of the adhesive layer results in a very attractive-looking label. When applied, the adhesive 62Xpc is resistant to moisture, soaps and oil. It also has good resistance to light, heat and ageing.
