New labelling system from Avery Dennison

Avery Dennison has launched its TurnLock Laminating System for the European labelling market. This allows converters to protect graphics using a single roll, consuming 30 per cent less material and at 25 per cent higher operational efficiencies. The system eliminates the need for an over-laminate or transfer tape.
Marco Fermo, durables segment director for Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials, explained: “This technology makes it possible to replace two rolls with a single roll, while retaining the same high levels of graffiti resistance and scuff protection. This means faster changeovers, improved splicing, reduced inventory and less waste.”
The system works by first reverse printing images and text on a clear, self-adhesive, 2mm polyester film face stock. This printed face stock is then de-laminated and webbed upwards toward the turn bar, with the adhesive/liner following a different, lower path. At the turn bar the face stock is flipped, so that the reverse print has a positive orientation. Finally, the face stock is re-laminated with the adhesive/liner.
There are two different pattern coats available and converters can produce white, black and metalized PET colours while on press.

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
