Downgauging has resulted in a packaging weight reduction of 20 percent
Arconvert U.S. has made Immaculate Papers, a collection of 100 percent greaseproof self-adhesive papers from Manter, available in North America.
The Immaculate Papers collection features seven sophisticated papers paired with a greaseproof treatment that serves as a functional barrier against oils and vegetable fats.
Immaculate Papers are compatible with roll-fed HP Indigo presses with in-line priming, as well as flexographic and rotary offset presses. Available in master roll widths of 39.37in, they can be slit to order and are available in minimums as low as 834 linear feet.
Originally designed for labeling olive oil products, their popularity is said to be growing with other edible oils, oil-based cosmetics and beauty products. Immaculate Papers are said to enhances a product’s appearance with textures, shades and finishes, while protecting labels from oily stains that can detract from the product’s image.
Darren Headland, vice president of sales at Arconvert U.S., said: ‘Their popularity in Europe, Latin America and other regions across the globe speaks for itself. Our international customers, printers and end users all tell us they love these materials for the same reason – they add undeniable luxury while maintaining their integrity around oily substances. There really is no comparison to other products; it’s something that needs to be seen and experienced firsthand.’
