Share Article

Extensive film line now includes three new polypropylenes.

Acucote Inc. welcomes thinner films to its current BOPP selections. These additions are economic alternatives to current marketplace offerings. Providing earth-friendly alternates that reduce raw material costs, energy consumption and landfill waste; these downgauged films extend Acucote’s prime and variable print BOPP labelstocks.

New additions to Acucote’s prime label offerings include the 2.4 mil White Topcoat and the 2.6 White Vision Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil White Topcoat is a cost-effective substitute for Acucote’s current 2.6 mil White Gloss Topcoat. The 2.4 mil maintains the same opacity and topcoating as the 2.6 mil.

The 2.6 White Vision Gloss is a mid gloss option between high gloss and matte finish facestocks.

For the variable print market, Acucote now stocks 2.6 mil White Premium Thermal Transfer. Serving as an alternative to the 3 mil White Thermal Transfer, this facestock has a smoother surface and results in sharper imaging through thermal transfer printers and much improved flexo printability.

Products are offered through AcuChoice program with GPX adhesive on a 40# liner. GPX is a water-based acrylic general purpose adhesive designed to adhere to a variety of surface applications. These new offerings are available No Trim with a minimum order quantity of 3” x 5,000’. Products are initially stocked in North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

Additional adhesive and liner combinations are available on a custom coat basis.

Acucote has a full line of paper and film facestocks and a variety of adhesives ranging from general purpose to high performance, ultra removable and microsphere.
