Film Labels – Robust and Versatile
Self-adhesive, transparent PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene) film labels are particularly popular in the cosmetics industry because film labels made of vinyl combine durability and aesthetics. They are resistant to oil and water, which cosmetic products do come into contact with during use. However, the areas of application vary depending on the material and the requirements. Vinyl labels are also used, for example, in labelling chemical products.
Advantages of Vinyl Labels
Compared to paper labels, vinyl labels are more robust, tear-resistant, water-repellent and dirt-resistant. They are used where the strain would be too great for paper labels. The hard-wearing film labels can be used in a variety of ways and are resistant to oil, water and various chemicals. With PE labels, you can be sure that customers can still read your product information even when it is wet. Another advantage is that the labels can be applied to the container before filling.
PP or PE Film?
At label.co.uk you can get film labels as polypropylene film (PP film) and polyethylene film (PE film). Here is a comparison of the two variants:
PP film is tear-resistant, heat-resistant and can be easily finished with hot foil stamping, protective varnish and film lamination. PP film is available in two thicknesses: With a thickness of 60 mµ, we stock the PP film in matt and in glossy, and with the thickness of 90 mµ it is available as a glossy version. PP film is also available as a transparent film with 50 mµ.
PE film, on the other hand, is not tear-resistant or heat-resistant and hot foil stamping is also not possible on this film. However, film lamination and protective varnish are no problem. PE film is available in glossy white and with a thickness of 85 mµ.
Vinyl Labels with No-Label Look
You also have the option of choosing a transparent film label in the so-called no-label look. This is a transparent but printed label made of flexible polypropylene film (PP film). No-label look labels are used when you want to give your product a special, eye-catching look and make it stand out. You can also add a finishing to this material – just like paper labels – to make the label even more unique.
