Lintec launches oil-tolerant label stock

Lintec, which supplies a number of specialist label and wide format stocks, has announced a new oil-tolerant labelstock range that can be applied directly to smooth or textured substrates.

Lintec has developed a range of label stocks with a strong oil-absorbing adhesive.

There are three different stocks, which are said to be ideal for steel, automobile components, industrial identification labels, and for general labelling of foods and cosmetics. The range includes 0T8060, a white polypropylene film, 0T5040, which is white polyester, and OT5050, a clear polyester film. 

They have a strong oil-absorbing adhesive so that the labels can be applied to oily surfaces and substrates without having to degrease those surfaces first. This saves considerable production time and cleaning material costs. The labelstocks can be printed with conventional ink or thermal transfer ribbon and will remain legible and firmly affixed under all conditions. 

Soichiro Fujinaga, technical manager for Lintec Europe, explained: “Within industries such as cosmetics, automobiles and food, it can be difficult for labels to adhere and remain intact on oily products. With the introduction of the oil-absorbing labelstock range, we hope to present a simple yet effective solution to this common problem. The innovative oil-absorbent qualities of the labelstock provide excellent adhesion to even the greasiest of surfaces that would usually interfere with adhesion.”
