Nueva línea de etiquetas EcoTec para el etiquetado ecológico de productos

Labels are a crucial part of any packaging. They have a strong impact on the buying process of consumers by drawing attention to a product. In addition, labels contain a lot of information that can influence consumers when buying a product or looking for an alternative.

When purchasing a product, consumers also consider how sustainable the product packaging and label used are. Hence the question: is plastic better than paper or vice versa? There is no general answer to this question. However, it is important that the same materials are used for a package, for example a PET label on a PET bottle with a PET cap or a paper label on a carton. Unlike composite packaging, single-component packaging can be recycled as a whole and without the consumer having to manually separate the various materials from which composite packaging is made. If that does not happen beforehand, the only way to recycle is thermal recycling, that is, waste incineration.

In addition, the sustainability of a package can be increased by using eco-labels. DTM Print , international OEM and solution provider for special printing systems, has grouped its selection of ecological, recycled or natural labels under the new line of DTM EcoTec labels. At the moment, the following four inkjet materials are part of the EcoTec line; other substrates will follow:

  • DTM EcoTec Hemp Paper: This label is composed of 100% hemp fiber. Hemp can be harvested up to three times a year, planting trees only every seven years. Thanks to its fibers, which are five times longer than wood pulp, the material is particularly tear-resistant and can be recycled very often.
  • DTM EcoTec Grass Paper: The natural grass fibers in the label not only give the paper material its unique and natural look, but also reduce the amount of processed water needed in the production process. The adhesive is a permanent, solvent-free acrylic dispersion that prediksi hk malam ini can be in direct contact with food according to EU regulation no. 10/2011.
  • DTM EcoTec Paper Matte Nature: This paper label is made with 100% recycled support from used label rolls.
  • DTM EcoTec Poly Clear Gloss R90: It is a glossy transparent poly-label, consisting of 90% post-consumer recycled PET (also known as PCR) material. It has the same clarity, mechanical properties and printing characteristics as its PCR-free counterpart “DTM Poly Clear Gloss”. The use of PCR material also establishes a higher volume of recycling for the plastic production process and the industry.

In addition, the water-soluble adhesive of the above-mentioned labels is less than 0.01%. That is, it also passes the recycling process.

“Producing exceptional product labels for all kinds of applications requires not only advanced, resource-friendly printing technology, such as that built into our color label printers, but also high-quality material,” explains Albion Bekolli , DTM Print label specialist. “Every product leaves a footprint on our planet, and using eco-friendly and sustainable label stock helps keep it as small as possible.”
