Labelling (not self-adhesive

« Back to Glossary Index

Most rigid packaging uses labels to present marketing and legal information on the product. Labelling provides multiple benefits over direct printing, such as greater flexibility in production and the ability to reuse or recycle the container more readily after the removal of the label.A wide range of adhesives is used for labelling. In the case of paper labels, water-based adhesives such as acrylic dispersions or, more traditionally, adhesives based on natural polymers are used. For attaching non-absorbent label materials, i.e., plastic labels, non-reactive hotmelt adhesives are typically used.
