ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants

Aquaprint and TerraWet are the outstanding coating solution for the production of in-mould labels. In the in-mould-labelling process, plastic packaging is produced and decorated in one pass. A printed, coated and stamped plastic foil label is placed in a casting mould and liquid plastic is extruded into the form. The hot plastic meets the reverse side of the label and both elements melt into each other.

The coating plays a vital role for the production of packaging with in-mould labels. In the printing and further processing, the coating provides a fast drying, a high scratch and scuff resistance and a good flatness.

With regard to injection moulding, labels must be able to be separated very easily and provide a good heat resistance. In the filling process and the later use, the coating guarantees high water resistances as well as resistances against fat and oil.
