INNOVIA Films has released a range of top-coated white facestock films for use in the industrial, chemical, logistics and transport labelling markets. Rayoface WTT films are top-coated, biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) which give exceptional print performance with added moisture, oil, chemical and smudge resistance.
They are available in both 65 and 95-micron thicknesses. Both high speed automatic labelling and hand application are catered for.
Their UV stable, paper-like topcoat is printable across a wide range of traditional print processes and for variable information printing (VIP) by thermal transfer or dot matrix printing.
For applications requiring outdoor durability, the 95-micron variant has UV stabilisation of the pigmented white BOPP base film, extending the outdoor lifetime up to two years.
The 65-micron variant has no stabilisation of the white base BOPP. It is targeted at short-term applications such as removable shelf-marking and goods and container labelling.
A reverse-side acrylic coating on both variants ensures wide-ranging adhesive compatibility and, together with the non-cavitated nature of the structure, ensures that upon container recycling the label can be removed cleanly and cost effectively without delamination or tearing.
For printing of product information such as serial and batch numbers, the highly absorbent topcoat gives high quality, scuff and smudge-resistant bar-codes using a wide range of thermal transfer ribbons. It is particularly suited to wax and wax/resin ribbon systems. The film's surface is also smooth enough for high-quality results when using resin ribbons. The printing of WTT by traditional print processes gives vibrant colours for full-colour graphics and brand identification.
The balanced properties of Rayoface WTT bring the industry accepted benefits of bubble produced BOPP to the conversion process such as high-speed lamination, superior die-cutting with high quality label edges and even die wear and reliable matrix stripping.
