Author Name: Label and Narrow Web
The company is currently in discussions with global labelstock manufacturers to produce this new product.
Labelcraft Products Ltd., of Pickering, Ontario, Canada, has announced the debut of its new eco-friendly release liner, the Recyclable EnviroLiner.
The Recyclable EnviroLiner is the first liner of its kind, the company says, and the innovative release design is made of 100% recycled material, which can be recycled in local facilities. The Recyclable EnviroLiner can be used in a variety of facestocks including films, gloss, thermal transfer, EDP and direct thermal. Labelcraft is currently in discussions with global labelstock manufacturers to produce this new product.
Traditionally, release liners have been unrecyclable because they are coated in large amounts of silicone. However, after many years of research and development, Labelcraft has overcome this issue. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is made of 100% recycled paper and allows converters to use standard presses and customers to use their standard printers.
