In-Mould Labelling (IML) - Labels moulded into plastic surfaces
IML is traditionally used for buckets and containers for food packaging, such as yogurt cups, cheese packages, and margarine containers. It has also become a popular method of decorating injection-moulded parts for consumer products (called "in-mould decoration - IMD").
IML eliminates subsequent labeling steps and all associated equipment and labor. Containers with in-mould labels are also easy to recycle if the label and the container are of the same material. The process can also be used for blow moulding and thermoforming.
All samples come with a laminated information card.
