Hard-wearing facestock film for demanding applications: For the production of product labels or labels to be printed with variable information in the fields of durables, A4 & cut size, oil & chemicals industry, home & personal care and beverage.
PICOFILM P-50 transparent LG1 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.
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.
