Sihl, a leader in packaging films for environmental-friendly aqueous inkjet digital printing that can be completely recycled, is set to launch what it says is the first inkjet film based on 90 percent post-consumer recycled BOPET.

The company says that its new innovation offers identical product benefits to its non-PCR counterpart and is ideally suited for razor-sharp product labels in print on demand. In addition to the resource-saving grades with reduced weight, this is another step towards a “green” range.

7054 PICOFILM CPr-50 gloss IHG1 is a transparent FACESTOCK film for the production of product labels. The front side has a glossy coating for variable information printing with water-based inkjet, and is suitable for both dye and pigment inks.

According to company’s press release, the product has the same mechanical properties, so it is easy to process – just like the non-PCR grades (7858/7852) – while offering identical benefits: fast drying, with high colour brilliance, sharp-edged prints and good water resistance. The total weight of this film has also been reduced: This means more labels per roll and thus higher productivity.
