Mactac® has introduced three new oil-tolerant labelstocks that are ideal for a wide range of product labeling applications: LTC0T8060 white matte polypropylene film, LTC0T5040 white gloss polyester film and LTCOT5050 clear polyester film.
The new labelstocks feature a strong, oil-absorbing adhesive that allows them to be easily applied to oily surfaces that would typically need to be cleaned before application—reducing production time and material costs.
“The new oil-tolerant labelstock offerings are a testament to Mactac’s focus on innovation and ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of businesses across industries,” said Kim Hensley, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “Historically, it has been a challenge for brands to keep labels in place on oily products. By developing our new oil-absorbing labelstocks, we can offer brands a simple, yet effective labeling solution for even the greasiest surfaces.”
Mactac’s oil-absorbing labelstocks include:
- LTCOT5040, a 2-mil top-coated white gloss polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner.
- LTCOT5050, a 2-mil top-coated clear polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 60# blue glassine liner.
- LTCOT8060, a 3.1-mil top coated white matte polypropylene film coated on one side with an oil tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner
Mactac’s oil-tolerant labelstocks can be applied to smooth or textured surfaces. They can be applied in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to 212 degrees Fahrenheit, making them a versatile labeling solution for a wide range of applications in the steel, automotive, industrial, food and cosmetics industries. The labelstocks can be printed with conventional ink or thermal transfer ribbon and will remain legible and firmly affixed under all conditions.
