Innovia Develops Thinner In-Mould Label Film

Innovia Develops Thinner IML Film

At only 50 microns, and with a density of 0.55 g/cm3, EUP50 is a high yield, high opacity, matt in-mould label (IML) film. It is a thinner version of the company’s EUP60.

The BOPP material is in line with ‘Design for Recycling’ recommendations given by RecyClass, which stated that PP-based In-Mould Label technology is considered fully compatible with coloured PP recycling.

‘EUP50 is perfect for labels for small-to-medium sized packaging in all food areas, whether you are moulding to polypropylene or polyethylene containers,’ explained Alasdair McEwen, Product Manager Labels and Graphics at Innovia Films. ‘EUP50 allows you to downgauge significantly where a thicker film is not needed, but also has the added benefit of reducing distortion in thin wall containers and lids after moulding,’ added McEwen.

The key to the success of EUP50 is the material science behind its formulation, which has ensured outstanding ink adhesion using UV cured and conventional offset inks, even at extremely high sheet feeding speeds.

Lucija Kralj, Labels Business Unit Director at Innovia films, added, ‘Films for IML are a core part of our label offerings, and the addition of EUP50 to our range is just the next step in building an innovative portfolio of products, with more additions to come.’
