PICOFILM WS-85 satin IG1

Squeezable facestock film for the production of product labels in the fields of beverages, home & personal care.

WS-85 satin IG1 is a white 83 µm polyolefin facestock film, with a satin coating on the front side for the printing of variable information using water-based inkjet printers and with the rear side untreated. This facestock adapts better than BOPP or PET films to many uneven surfaces and is slightly stretchable.

This film is easier to process than standard PE films and can be used for a wide range of applications: It is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. Self-adhesive coaters and downstream processors benefit from higher productivity as the film can be processed at higher speeds than standard PE films.
End customers get a fast-drying, easy-to-process product with high colour brilliance, sharply contoured printouts and good water resistance.
