Selecting durable substrates for beverage labels

To attract the eye of consumers labels need to look inviting in the fridge, freezer or on the shelf. They can’t afford to fade or smudge under environmental conditions such as moisture, temperature and sunlight. Key to the performance of the label, is the substrate selected. The self-adhesive label presses at Lebone Paarl Labels can accommodate an extensive range of coated and uncoated papers, foils as well as films.

Coated papers have a smooth, non-textured finish and repel liquids better than uncoated stocks, making them often more suitable for beverage products. Film such as polypropylene and polyethylene are usually waterproof, heat and chemical resistant.

Polyethylene (PE) 

A tough, stretchy plastic film that is both water and temperature resistant. It is produced more optically clear than polypropylene and it is commonly used at Lebone Paarl Labels for the production of food product labels.

Polypropylene (PP) 

It is similar to polyethylene plastic film but is stronger and more rigid. It has a higher temperature and is also chemically resistant. It is tear-proof, waterproof and is resistant to fading.
