Coveris develops multi-layer linerless labels

Compac Linerless is a world first that combines functional and commercial benefits whilst supporting new food information regulations via extensive surface area printing capabilities

Coveris has launched Compac Linerless, a new multi-layer addition to its award-winning label range designed to meet its customer’s brand, functionality and process requirements.

Compac Linerless is a world first that combines functional and commercial benefits whilst supporting new food information regulations (FIR) via extensive surface area printing capabilities. In doing so, Coveris said it has achieved significant volume, environmental and process advantages through an innovative multi-layer format. The large surface area can be used to communicate messages linked to FIR, promotions, cooking instructions, recipes and more in order to maximize on-pack communication and on-shelf presence, whilst also enhancing brand integrity. Options including peel and reseal, smart coding and multi-open options, such as tear-away perforation, are also available.

Another recent development by Coveris has been Slidewrap, a fully removable linerless label format, and the company said it has been involved in the development and expansion of linerless labels within the meat, fish and poultry sector, working to establish this as the dominant print format for the category. The launch of Compac Linerless extends the application of linerless labels to include further product information across twin layers with up to three printable faces, and Craig Bevan, linerless sales director at Coveris, said: ‘Revolutionizing the Compac range to include a linerless format offers significant benefits to our customers. Advantageous to communication, environment and operational processes, the Coveris Compac Linerless concept is an exciting first-to-market launch.

‘We are thrilled at the potential of this design to develop with our customer’s brand, functionality and process requirements.’
