Taghleef Industries – New IML film at Labelexpo

Titanium is a new metallic in-mould labelling BOPP film to be introduced at Labelexpo Europe 2015

UAE • During the latter years of the last century the in-mould labelling of injection moulded plastic containers had become the decoration method of choice providing a variety of post moulding finishes. Titanium is a new metallic in-mould labelling BOPP film to be introduced at Labelexpo Europe 2015.

Prior to Taghleef’s release of Titanium, any number of options were considered to overcome issues such as scratch resistance of the metallisation, the adhesion of the inks to the metal surface, the buildup of static, and the failure of the label to accept the static charge from the robotic system.

Take your pick of a smooth finish, satin finish, the orange peel look, high gloss and transparent all these options were satisfied by the portfolio of films on offer. Yet there was one visual effect that had proved elusive, the “Luxury Look”, and the use of metallised BOPP film to really achieve premier “come & buy me” shelf presence.
