Sato, a global specialist in the development of auto-identification and labeling technology, has launched an environmentally responsible direct thermal linerless labeling product claimed to offer a lower total cost of ownership.
The pressure-sensitive label technology, with specially formulated release coating and optional perforated tear lines, removes the need for a release liner. This results in measurable benefits for businesses that are considering switching to a sustainable labeling alternative, according to Sato.
Detlev Mueller, general manager, DACH and CEE at Sato, commented: ‘No liner waste equates to lower transportation, storage and waste disposal costs. Businesses who switch to Sato linerless labels can dramatically reduce their carbon footprint and improve safety standards for their employees – there is no risk of injury through slippage, for example, if the backing liner is taken out of the equation.
‘And perhaps most appealing to European businesses looking for a viable eco-friendly solution in line with today’s global trends, linerless labels include up to 40 percent more labels per roll than labels with a backing liner. It really is a win-win situation for both the company and the environment.’
Sato self-adhesive linerless labels are compatible with Sato industrial and portable printers such as the CLNX Series and its recently launched mobile PW2NX Series.
