Sustainable, transparent FACESTOCK film based on 90 % PCR PET for the production of product labels in the fields of durables, A4 & cut size, oil & chemicals industry, home & personal care and beverage.
PICOFILM CPr-57 glossLG1 is a transparent 57 µm PET facestock film, with the front side glossy coated for the printing of variable information using laser, thermal transfer, and treated reverse. 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.
In addition to a better CO2 balance, this film’s process characteristics are similar to standard PET films. No change to the processes is necessary. Self-adhesive coaters benefit from low transport and storage costs (1 product for 2 printing technologies). End customers get a durable, weather- and chemical-resistant product with high scratch resistance.

For quality reasons PICOFILM should be stored originally packed. Storage and converting conditions of 23±5°C and 50±10% rel. humidity are recommended. The material should be used within a period of 24 months.
We always recommend comprehensive testing of materials prior to regular conversion.
