Features & Benefits
What you can expect from us:
Seals at a lower temperature than competitive alternatives, resulting in minimized risk of product damage and reduced ink degradation.
Dwell time is up to 20% less than other heat-seal coatings. So you can expect improved yields, throughput and decreased costs.
Its rigidity makes it perfect for fold-over, tamper-evident blister packaging. A polymer coating on the felt side offers a completely sealed surface. You can also expect excellent folding and scoring properties.
A smooth surface provides outstanding ink holdout and best-in-class consistency for optimal printability. Polymer coat-weight uniformity offers improved efficiencies and maximum throughput on high-speed forming and filling equipment.
Direct printing on the board eliminates the need to apply a heat-seal coating. This improves converting efficiency and reduces inventory costs.
Best used with carded packaging in:
- Beauty and Personal Care
