Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions announces a revolutionary expansion to the MICROLINER® product line
Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions has developed an innovative pressure sensitive labeling solution that expands the MICROLINER® thin label solution into new applications. Reverse print MICROLINER® RVP technology allows to print on the underside of the facestock – eliminating the need for protective varnishes or costly overlams while improving the durability of labels currently being surface printed. Overlams are commonly used to protect the label ink on products in refrigerated, wet, abrasive, or high impact applications such as beverage, dairy, produce and shower products. The MICROLINER® RVP technology completely protects the label ink from these challenging conditions. Combine this with MICROLINER®’s proven benefits, and you have a truly revolutionary pressure sensitive solution.
MICROLINER® labels utilize a robust, down gauged film liner and a reversed label die-cutting process that reduces material costs while improving operational efficiencies on your current label application equipment. Because MICROLINER® technology utilizes a thinner and stronger liner, 30% or more labels can fit on a single roll, which translates into longer run time between roll changes, less operational downtime for changeovers, higher average run speeds, less waste, and lower shipping costs. In situations where overlams are currently being used, changing to a MICROLINER®RVP Reverse Print process can result in 100% more labels on a roll with a significant material and cost savings.
“This new evolution of the MICROLINER® process expands our reach into new pressure sensitive label markets. By applying the ink to the underside of the facestock, Outlook Group Packaging & Printing Solutions eliminates the need for varnishes or overlams that protect the label,” says Kevin Hayes, Executive VP of Sales and Market Development. “The ink is protected by the facestock which gives the label a superior performance in the marketplace while reducing waste. Our customers are excited about the sustainability benefits of less material and waste in addition to the operational benefits that come with 100% more labels on a roll.”
