Systems Labelling’s latest product development; the “Ecoplas” label offers a real alternative to paper labels when used on plastic bottles. Recycling trials have proven synthetic labels peel away during the recycling process resulting in over 90% label removal. The waste labels are then recycled into Polyolefin Compounds, whereas adhesive paper labels break down and create a pulp which causes colour contamination and has to be collected and sent to landfill.
Environmental benefits apart, Systems Labelling also claim they can offer the Ecoplas synthetic label at no on-cost when compared to paper. Their Business Development Director, Stephen Lloyd added. “Our infrastructure and continuous appetite for NPD is a core strength. This platform enables us to both generate new innovations but also industrialise labelling solutions effectively. Therefore delivering the necessary commercial appeal and offer an improved finish quality when compared to the paper equivalent. In short the decision to switch couldn’t be easier.”
In summary; The Ecoplas label is ideally suited to applying to plastic bottles which currently use paper labels. The innovation offers; a real alternative to paper, is fully recyclable, spillage resistant due to wipe clean laminated finish or can be supplied with a gloss or matt varnish.
