Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives recently announced that it will attend the World of Wipes Conference, scheduled for June 27-30 in Chicago, Ill. The company will reportedly showcase its range of open-close solutions, including polypropylene and polyethylene films with a removable adhesive for high tear resistance and clean removability, as well as good conformability and reliability.

“The latest market trends suggest adopting a mono-material approach (PE or BOPP) for both the flex packs and the Open & Close labels,” said Melissa Harton, marketing manager, North America. “Our range of PE and BOPP constructions ensures full compatibility with this trend for soft and semi-rigid Open & Close labels. Thanks to the adhesive technology and film thicker facestocks, semi-rigid Open & Close labels are a more sustainable alternative to rigid plastic lids that are widely used by this application. Being thinner and lighter, they also reduce the quantity of waste.”

To make semi-rigid open-close labels more similar to rigid plastic lids, Fedrigoni Self-Adhesives reports that it has developed a patent that allows the label to remain open during use to facilitate the removal of the wet wipes from the flexible packaging. The range is designed for hand wipes, baby wipes, cosmetic wipes, household wipes, and more.
