Sustainable, silver FACESTOCK film based on 90 % PCR PET for the production of product labels in the fields of beverages, home & personal care.
PICOFILM SPr-80 gloss IHG1 is a silver approx. 80 µm PET facestock film, with a gloss coating on the front side for the printing of variable information using water-based inkjet printers and with the rear side untreated. 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.
Self-adhesive coaters 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 20 +- 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.
