Polykote Corp. has developed this
decade's most exciting breakthrough in the labeling
industry. Using Silgon™ Linerless Technology (patent
pending), you can take non-tacky label stock and
activate to create everlasting pressure sensitive
adhesive properties. This will help you save the
environment, streamline your labeling process and
be more cost efficient.
Polykote Corp and QUADREL Labeling Systems
have teamed up to introduce a complete system for using this Linerless Label Technology.
Utilizing Quadrel's new HALO
(Heat Activated Linerless Operating) System, the two companies will be demonstrating bottle
labeling success at PACK EXPO in Chicago's McCormick Place in Quadrel's booth# S766.
If you would like to arrange for a demonstration in our labeling
technology center, please contact us.
The following is a brief outline of how this unique material can help
you save a tree...Or perhaps an entire forest.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT & INFORMATION
Polykote Corp. has been providing solutions to the Tape and Label Industry
for over 20 years. With our full staff of Engineers and Technicians
we have developed this Labeling Breakthrough.
We were challenged to create a label material that would be non-tacky
and dry to the touch, but would exhibit Pressure-Sensitive properties
on demand. This is just what we have done!
You can now have what appears to be a non-adhesive piece of paper or
film and activate right before application to create an everlasting
BENEFITS AND APPLICATIONS
Now imagine the benefit of creating the Pressure-Sensitive adhesive
characteristics just before a label needs to be
applied, with this ability you can eliminate the
need for a release liner. Typically the liner's job is to "protect"
the sticky adhesive throughout the printing, die-cutting and pre-application
steps. Once the Label is applied, the liner is disposed and often becomes
Now imagine what you can save if you didn't need the release liner...What
you can save is:
- The cost of the liner, which is often more expensive than the Label
face material alone.
- The cost to dispose of the liner.
- The cost to ship the extra weight of the liner from the coating
process, all the way through to the printing/converting process, to
the application process and then to the disposal site.
- You can save a Tree!
We recognize that this method is not feasible in every labeling application.
However many high volume, repetitive action labeling systems, including
bottle labeling, box labeling and package operations can readily retro-fit
to use this Green and cost saving concept. Both roll fed and sheet fed
dispensing systems can be used. It is simplest if the system incorporates
a vacuum plate or belt for application.
We have partnered with several Label Dispensing & Applying groups
who can design and build a line for your needs, or we can work with
your equipment team if you prefer.
This unique material is dormant, dry and non-tacky until you activate
it by briefly exposing it to an energy source.
We have tested several energy sources including:
- High-Energy Light
- Radiant Heat
- Hot Air
Once activated the adhesive performs like any typical PSA. The activation
process is time/temperature dependent, it begins at 150 F, the more
energy you introduce the faster it permanently becomes a pressure sensitive
label. We can work with you to design the best product for your needs.
