VPF offers high-gloss PE adhesive material

VPF offers high-gloss PE adhesive material

VPF is expanding its product portfolio with a new high-gloss inkjet PE material.

For the first time, high-quality glossy inkjet foils comprising PE, PP and PET are also available.

The newly developed inkjet PE material, bearing the identification VPF 71914, has a white high-gloss finish and is provided with a 100my premium coating for fast drying, durable inkjet printing. Users can implement many new label applications which otherwise were not possible with the currently available, often inflexible inkjet PP and PET foils.

The inkjet PE material has been developed especially for application on narrow radii. Internal tests carried out on vials, syringes and ampoules have yielded excellent round label characteristics, so also on cosmetic product packaging systems and e-liquid containers. The material is typically prepped with the permanent adhesive 958. This dispersion acrylate-based adhesive has been around in the market for years and in use in numerous applications, which require high adhesive force together with high cohesion.

The material is marketed for end users for whom varietal integrity of their packaging system is highly crucial. It is available right now in low minimum volumes of 1,000 square meters with the adhesive 958 and white glassine B700-473, 63g. On request, other adhesive and liner combinations can be supplied.

The new inkjet PE foil expands the range of VPF inkjet adhesive materials which include more than 30 paper and foil materials.
