PPG recently announced that it will showcase PPG TESLIN® substrate for adhesive coaters, label converters, and packaging specialists during Labelexpo Europe 2019, which will be held September 24-27 in Brussels, Belgium. According to PPG, its Teslin substrate is a durable, secure, and easy-to-print synthetic material that excels in applications that demand a tough, high-performance label solution. The substrate reportedly contains micropores that absorb inks, toners, adhesives, and coatings, locking them into its structure for long-lasting durability and security with no additional processing or expense.
PPG reports that this characteristic makes the substrate ideal for applications that require printed data to remain on labels, such as brand protection, tamper-evident security, medical/pharmaceutical, and in-mold applications. It is also used in the chemicals industry for labels that are compliant with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and British Standard 5609 (BS 5609).
“We will be showcasing a variety of label solutions at Labelexpo Europe so visitors to our booth can touch and feel the print durability and quality,” said Fabrizio Mandingorra, PPG global segment manager, Teslin labels. “Additionally, we will be sharing a case study on the success of PPG Teslin substrate for Premier Coating & Converters, one of our key customers in Europe.”
