Sustainable, transparent FACESTOCK film based on 90 % PCR BOPET for the production of product labels.
7054 PICOFILM CPr-50 gloss IHG1 is a transparent 50 µm FACESTOCK film for the production of product labels. The front side has a glossy coating for variable information printing with water-based inkjet, and is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. The product has the same mechanical properties, so it is easy to process – just like the non-PCR grades (7858/7852) – while offering identical benefits: fast drying, with high colour brilliance, sharp-edged prints and good water resistance. The total weight of this film has also been reduced: This means more labels per roll and thus higher productivity.
Sihl FACESTOCK coatings combined with print-on-demand printing technology make it easier and more affordable to produce exactly the amount of labels needed while meeting customers’ personalisation requirements. This reduces waste and CO2 emissions enormously.

For quality reasons PICOFILM should be stored originally packed. Storage and converting conditions of 23±5°C and 50±10% rel. humidity are recommended. Inkjet coatings are durable for a period of two years when stored appropriately in original packaging.
We always recommend comprehensive testing of materials prior to regular conversion.
