Narrow Web


User-friendly inks and coatings for labels, tube laminates and extruded plastic tubes

Labels, plastic tubes and laminates (PTL) are a product’s face to consumers. They do not only convey the brand design and carry the relevant product information, but also enable the product to stand out on the shelf and evoke certain emotions to attract consumer attention. In other words, labels and tube laminates play a significant role in brand communication contributing to product sales.

From shower gel through skin cream and toothpaste to beverage bottles, the quality demands for labels and laminates are as versatile as their possible applications.
