Transparent facestock film for the production of product labels in the fields of beverages, home & personal care.
P-50 transparent IHG1 is a transparent 78 µm PET facestock film, with a gloss coating on the front side for the printing of variable information using water-based inkjet printers, with a topcoated reverse for improved anchorage of adhesive.
Self-adhesive coaters and downstream processors benefit from process characteristics which are similar to standard PET films and from the versatility: This film is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. No change to the processes is necessary. End customers get a fast-drying, easy-to-process product with high colour brilliance, sharply contoured printouts and good water 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. 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.
