Your product deserves the best packaging

Within the packaging market, stand-up pouches are one of the most popular packaging formats. They are often more sustainable than other forms of packaging, can be easily filled and represent the product in a high-quality way at the point of sale. They also offer efficient protection of the product over the period of use. For this reason, demand for printed stand-up pouches is growing strongly, especially in smaller batch sizes. With adelmo, batch sizes of 1-50,000 can be produced efficiently and easily.

The adelmo product portfolio comprises high-quality stand-up pouches for the packaging of free-flowing dry products, for example for the snacks, coffee, tea, spices, food supplements and pet food sectors and nonfood markets such as cosmetics and cleaning products. The stand-up pouches from adelmo bring with them a number of advantages:

  • Recyclable thanks to sustainable mono-material
  • Aroma and oxygen protection
  • Reclosable
  • Light and waterproof
  • Food compliant

We speak from experience

adelmo is a brand of the Sihl Group. The Sihl Group has been strengthening the market position of its customers for more than 100 years – with over 400 employees, passion and innovative ideas. But experience means more to us: we know the challenges our customers face. Because we know what they need and how they think – and we develop customised solutions to strengthen their offering.


We are pleased to be part of LabelExpo Europe 2023 in Brussels again this year. From 11-14 September, we will welcome our customers and partners in Hall 6 Stand C15 and present solutions and innovations from the Label FACESTOCK, ARTYSIO Flexible Packaging and Tags segments.


In the Label FACESTOCK area, we will be showing our two new products PICOFILM WO-80 matt ZM1 (8002) and PICOFILM WO-110 matt ZM1 (8003) for the first time. The ZM1 coating is a new matt, highly resistant coating for water-based inkjet printing.

It is also resistant to a wide range of chemicals and at the same time shows a high quality print image. This makes the products suitable for many demanding label applications, for example in home & personal care, pharmaceutical applications or in the oil and chemical industry.

When transporting goods by sea, long distances have to be covered, often in extreme weather conditions. Labels are used to reliably label goods of any class, e.g. also hazardous substances or toxic chemicals, according to GHS. The approval of the ZM1 coating on the Epson C6500 and C4000 printers in accordance with the globally recognised BS5609 Section 3 standard guarantees reliable, resistant labelling for such applications.

Labels on Demand

With the ENDURO and PICOFILM ranges, Sihl offers solutions for decentralised on-demand printing of tearresistant labels in short runs. This makes it possible to flexibly design blank labels without pre-printing and at the same time fulfil customer requests for personalisation.

We are introducing a new application area for our ENDURO Premium 150 matt (6900) and ENDURO Effect 140 Water improved (6912): wristbands for access control and identification. These material strips, which are worn around the wrist, facilitate, for example, the identification of guests at events, concerts, in water parks, etc. As our products are very hard-wearing and tear-resistant, they are ideal for this area of application and offer many advantages over other materials.

You can get more information directly at our stand 6C15 at LabelExpo or online at:

Sustainability plays a major role for the entire range. We are constantly working on our products to make them more sustainable and conserve resources. For example, our ENDURO Classic 145 K (6946) now convinces with a PCR content of 90%. It is also PVC-free and FSC® certified.

ARTYSIO Packaging

In the area of flexible packaging you can see our new „Pack&Print“ solution. Here, stand-up pouches are made from our ARTYSIO film, which can then be individually printed using aqueous inkjet or laser processes and finally filled. This sets new standards in the industry for small, highly flexible customer orders of up to 10,000 pieces. In addition, transport and storage costs are saved and the delivery time is shortened considerably.

No more dirty trolleys, belts or suitcase handles thanks to PRESSURETAC! Safe and clean labelling plays a major role in the airline and logistics industry. Standard labels not only leave a lot of waste due to the peeled-off silicone papers, but also usually leave unsightly and unhygienic residues when they are removed. Here PRESSURETAC offers the perfect solution: linerless, self-adhesive paper for loop tag labelling. The basic principle is based on cold seal technology. When two ends of such a back-coated material are brought together with pressure, the high cohesion causes them to stick together permanently. The resulting loop tag sticks only to itself, back to back, without any additional waste.

Test it yourself live at LabelExpo at our stand 6C15!

Sihl at LabelExpo Europe 2023

After the LabelExpo Europe had to be cancelled in the last years due to pandemic, we are pleased to present again this year at the world‘s largest event for the label and packaging industry in Brussels with a cross-section of our broad portfolio. Sihl showcases solutions in the segments Label FACESTOCK, ARTYSIO Flexible Packaging and Tags with focus on sustainability. Sihl is considered a pioneer on the path to greater sustainability and as part of the ESG strategy combines economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility.


In the FACESTOCK range, we present innovations for water-based on-demand inkjet printing. It includes BOPP and PET films in various sizes and colours and already offers 10 film products with a PCR content of between 30% (white) and 90% (clear). The products have the same mechanical properties and the undisputed Sihl printing performance in laser or AQ inkjet printing, so just like the rest of the range they are easy to process and offer identical benefits: fast drying, high colour brilliance, sharp-edged prints and good water resistance.

Together with the right adhesive, they support recycling efforts, whether through the option of monopackaging or automatic sorting during recycling. To reduce CO2 emissions, many products are available with DUAL printing technology. This reduces inventory along the entire logistics chain, as only one product is needed for at least two printing technologies, such as inkjet and laser.

In addition, Sihl saves resources in the use of materials and offers aqueous inkjet products with reduced weight. Compared to the corresponding PET or BOPP grades, the total weight is reduced by up to 40%, which increases productivity with 30% to 50% more labels per roll.

With ARTYSIO we offer functional, flexible packaging solutions for water-based on-demand inkjet or laser printing for narrow web printers, converters and brand manufacturers. Premade, individually printable stand-up pouches: The ARTYSIO film is first produced on the line to form unprinted stand-up pouches, which can then be individually printed later as required using aqueous inkjet or laser printing. This variant is suitable for all small, highly flexible customer orders of up to 10,000 pieces and represents a completely new benchmark in the industry.

The “Made for Recycling” seal guarantees sustainability. ARTYSIO is manufactured according to GMP guidelines (“Good Manufacturing Practice”) and ensures production in the food environment. Therefore, ARTYSIO is qualified as flexible, primary packaging for food & non-food applications.

Correct and secure goods labelling plays a central role in the logistics industry. At the same time, cost pressure is continuously increasing, and companies are looking for new efficient, cheaper and more flexible solutions. In addition, with sustainability another important factor has come into play. As a specialist for high-quality coatings, Sihl offers innovative solutions that clearly move in this direction. In the logistics industry, pallets are traditionally wrapped with stretch film during transport and then labelled. This generates large amounts of waste that must be disposed of.

Sihl has found a solution to this problem with PRESSURETAC, an environmentally friendly, linerless label material. The loop tag is attached, for example, to a reusable pallet strap, box, or trolley, which are safe and environmentally friendly substitutes for stretch film. It also scores points because it only sticks to itself. Once folded on its back, the high cohesion ensures the label sticks to itself permanently due to a cold-seal technology. This eliminates the need for silicone paper used in traditional methods, reducing both production time and waste.

It is easy to remove and leaves no marks, increasing economy and environmental friendliness by eliminating the need for costly chemical cleaning of cages, belts and trolleys. The label material is recyclable and FSC® certified. And as it is compact and lightweight, it saves costs and CO2 emissions during storage and transport.

Tags on demand

With the ENDURO and PICOFILM ranges, Sihl offers solutions for decentralised on-demand printing of tear-resistant plant stabbers, loop and hang tags in short runs. This allows blank labels to be designed flexibly without pre-printing and at the same time meets customer requirements for personalisation.

ENDURO products are durable and long-lasting due to a special composite material with a film core between two paper layers. It can be processed and printed as easily as paper and is at the same time tear-resistant, water-repellent, durable and hard-wearing. In addition, the ENDURO range is FSC® certified and certified for recyclability / pulpability.

PICOFILM products are high-quality coated, tear-resistant films, many of which are water-, chemical- and heat-resistant. They impress with good ink adhesion, brilliant print results and are also particularly suitable for outdoor use.

On laser and inkjet printers, the media guarantee the highest print quality and brilliant colour reproduction. The roll-to-roll process ensures easy handling and high productivity. Depending on the material, the products can be printed on both sides and are suitable for outdoor use.

On-demand printing makes it possible to produce exactly the desired run directly on site. Efficient and sustainable digital print production also contributes to lower CO2 emissions as there are no transport distances and the goods are available immediately.

Perigon GmbH, a subsidiary of the Sihl Group, has taken over the technology company Trichord Ltd. as of 1 June, making it a full-range supplier of technologically high-grade decorated surfaces.

Perigon is the first supplier in the world to offer a process that allows even complex 3D objects to be printed on an industrial scale over their entire surface. In brilliant colours, pin-sharp, free of distortion – regardless of the material.

Through the acquisition of the technology provider and joint venture partner Trichord Ltd., the parent company Sihl instantly holds 100% of the shares in both the technology and the consumables.

‘A perfect match’, says Peter Wahsner, CEO of the Sihl Group. ‘It allows us to offer our customers everything from a single source, with every part sourced and manufactured in-house. The acquisition of Trichord is the foundation for the global expansion of our strategic Industrial Customisation division. It positions Perigon as an attractive implementation partner for industrial surface decoration, for example for brands from the glass bottle industry.’

The operations and respective contact persons of Trichord and Perigon will remain unchanged until further notice.



Less plastic, more sustainability: that is the promise of the new GreenGrafX Photo Paper 220 satin (3616). Unlike conventional photo papers, it is fully recyclable via the waste-paper cycle. The new product will be available from June 2023.

Picture the World without Plastic: The new photo paper from Sihl is the first choice for brilliant print results in photo and poster applications as well as in large format printing. The material is not only Made in Germany and FSC® certified, but can also be recycled via the waste-paper cycle, so that it is certified according to the PTS RH 021/97 category II method, which is common in the recycling environment. The finishing with a bio-based barrier and the microporous coating replace the PE-film of conventional photo papers and thus make it environmentally friendly, while at the same time retaining the properties that are important for photo printing.

Print. Impress. Recycle. Repeat.

So, after the photo is before the photo. The bio-based barrier also ensures very good flatness, even with high ink application, and makes the material less sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. The coating is optimised for water-based ink systems and provides excellent colour reproduction, a wide colour gamut and fast drying.

GreenGrafX Photo Paper 220 satin: 100% quality. 100% recyclable.
