Facestock film for the production of product labels in the fields of food, beverages, home & personal care.
WP-50 gloss IHG1 is a white approx. 50 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.
Self-adhesive coaters and downstream processors benefit from the excellent process characteristics thanks to the dimensional stability of the base film and the higher productivity in comparison to other inkjet films: Fewer roll changes are required for adhesive coating. This film is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. End customers get a fast-drying, easy-to-process product with high colour brilliance, sharply contoured printouts and good water resistance. They also benefit from higher productivity thanks to a higher number of labels per roll.

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.
