ExxonMobil Chemical launches film label replacement for paper

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 03 September, 2002  (New Product)
ExxonMobil Chemical today introduced Label-Lyte
ExxonMobil Chemical today introduced Label-Lyte® 85 LP-200M, a biaxially oriented polypropylene film designed to replace metallized paper in water-based, cold-glue cut and stack patch labeling applications.

The first film of its kind in the industry to run on most existing paper labeling equipment without machinery or adhesive modifications, Label-Lyte® 85 LP-200M brings the marketing and manufacturing benefits of film to beer, wine, spirits, food and household chemical marketers.

'Label Lyte 85 LP-200M fills a void in the cold-glue patch label marketplace for a film that runs on standard water-based glues,' said Terry Jensen, senior market development manager, ExxonMobil Chemical. 'We are extremely excited to bring a true film drop-in replacement for paper to our customers.'

Designed for use as a single web, Label-Lyte 85 LP-200M provides excellent converting performance, including printing, sheeting, guillotine cutting and label transfer on magazine-fed labelers and Krones Topmatic labelling equipment. In testing and commercial use with several large beer marketers, Label-Lyte 85 LP-200M clocked speeds of 600 - 800 labels a minute.

In addition to speed, Label-Lyte 85 LP-200M boasts excellent moisture resistance and durability, passing 24, 48 and 72 hour ice chest testing and eliminating problems from curl, flagging, tearing and wrinkling that paper labels experience. During trials on commercial bottling equipment, Label-Lyte 85 LP-200M reduced glue usage by more than 50% versus the paper label it replaced, creating a significant cost savings for the bottler.
