Treofan launches new IML label film


EWR50, the new version of the IML label film EWR from BOPP specialist Treofan, is now even thinner than the previous EWR57 film. With a thickness of 50 µm, it offers greater efficiency and larger surface yield – with the same product properties. This greatly benefits brand manufacturers and converters in the food and packaging industry. Due to the lower film thickness, the average surface yield significantly increases to 20.8 m2/kg. By comparison, the EWR57 film with 57 µm thickness provides a surface yield of 18.3 m2/kg.
Just like the EWR57, the solid white EWR50 enables the efficient production of labels. The IML decoration with EWR labels gives packaging the desired high gloss look. EWR is specifically developed for in-mould labels for PP and PE injection moulding. With good antistatic properties, web flatness and machinability, it is ideally suited for offset sheet-fed printing with UV curing and oxidative drying inks, as well as for gravure and UV-flexo printing. •
