Mactac has introduced three new oil-tolerant labelstocks that are ideal for a wide range of product labelling applications: LTC0T8060 white matte polypropylene film, LTC0T5040 white gloss polyester film and LTCOT5050 clear polyester film.

The new labelstocks feature an oil-absorbing adhesive that allows them to be applied to oily surfaces that would typically need to be cleaned before application—reducing production time and material costs.

'The new oil-tolerant labelstock offerings are a testament to Mactac’s focus on innovation and ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of businesses across industries,' said Kim Hensley, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. 'Historically, it has been a challenge for brands to keep labels in place on oily products. By developing our new oil-absorbing labelstocks, we can offer brands a simple, yet effective labelling solution for even the greasiest surfaces.'

Mactac’s oil-absorbing labelstocks include:

 - LTCOT5040, a 2-mil top-coated white gloss polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner.

 - LTCOT5050, a 2-mil top-coated clear polyester film coated on one side with an oil-tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 60# blue glassine liner. • LTCOT8060, a 3.1-mil top coated white matte polypropylene film coated on one side with an oil tolerant acrylic adhesive and protected by a 45# blue glassine liner.

 - Mactac’s oil-tolerant labelstocks can be applied to smooth or textured surfaces.

They can be applied in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The labelstocks can be printed with conventional ink or thermal transfer ribbon and will remain legible and firmly affixed under all conditions.
