New from Mactec, Bloom hi.mpact is an ultra-thin, environmentally friendly liner designed to reduce the labelling industry’s environmental impact.

An addition to its Roll Label product offering, the new liner is 1.7-mil, making it thinner than traditional liners, Mactec officials said, and it delivers a range of added efficiencies to manufacturing, converting, shipping, transportation and warehousing, such as:

  • Less raw material usage
  • Increased productivity with more labels/footage per roll, less roll changeover during printing and application and less downtime
  • Reduced packaging waste, including cores, cartons, boxes and shrink wrap
  • Reduced freight; i.e. less shipments, fuel usage and CO2 emissions
  • Increased warehouse space

“Fewer changeovers in applicating means less downtime and fewer packaging and cartons, for less waste,” said Kathy Magyar, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “Also, more labels per roll – at greater than 10% more footage for the same original diameter – equates to fewer shipments so less freight, lower fuel usage and reduced fuel emissions. All of this contributes to a sustainable positive impact for you, both financially and environmentally.”

From a performance standpoint, Bloom hi.mpact offers an ultra-smooth surface, leading to better laydown of adhesive for an improved appearance, which is especially important for clear films. The product also boasts a smooth consistent, harder diecutting surface, allowing for enhanced converting properties.

Bloom hi.mpact is also available on a variety of Mactac Roll Label products.
