The Seal-It Division of Printpack is printing and converting Earthfirst® PLA shrink film labels for Body Glove Water Filtration Systems, manufactured by 3M and distributed by Water, Inc. The label is part of Water Inc’s commitment to producing sustainable packaging.
The Body Glove water filters are the latest addition to the ECO products for eco-friendly consumers. The package was designed to build the product line with as many environmental considerations as possible. The cartridges, tapered in design, makes a paper label difficult to fully wrap around the recyclable filter housing, therefore, the printed full sleeve shrink label was the ideal label since it conforms to the shape of each cartridge. The four labels for four different sized cartridges was printed by Seal-It, a Division of Printpack are rotogravure printed in 7-9 colors on PLA film. Each label covers the entire filter from top to bottom and has a 360-degree image area with room for a complex graphic design that sets it apart from the rest of the water filter industry. PLA is an alternative film that is compostable and recyclable. It has excellent clarity, and print quality, is shelf stable at higher storage temperature and shrinks quickly requiring less heat. This label allows the consumer to understand what the water filter will do for them and the environment.
Printpack’s Seal-It division is a manufacturer, converter and printer of heat shrink PVC, PETG, OPS and PLA films, used by manufacturers for labeling, tamper-evident bands and sleeves for multipacks.
