Jindal Films unveils Label-Lyte LLC platform at Labelexpo Europe 2019

Addressing sustainability


At Labelexpo Europe 2019, India’s Jindal Films introduced Label-Lyte LLC platform with a special OPP design that combines the characteristics of polyethylene (PE) like conformability, squeezability and flexibility with the inherent properties of OPP like stiffness, no elongation and transparency.

“With ongoing challenges to reduce the use of plastic to the minimum and make sure that the design of plastic packaging bottles supports the global effort and journey for a plastic circular economy, Jindal Films is proud to build on the success of its Label-Lyte LLC conformable and squeezable OPP,” said Denis Rousseau, global segment manager, Labels, Jindal Films.

The new Label-Lyte LLC platform provides brand owners with opportunities to reduce their use of plastic in existing packaging and make sure that it is recyclable where programs and facilities to collect and recycle plastic exist, according to the company. Label-Lyte LLC label can reduce the use of plastic by 40 % versus typical thicker polyethylene (PE) labels.

As a polyolefin, Label-Lyte LLC can be recycled on polyethylene or polypropylene (PP) containers where existing polyolefin recycling channels exist. According to the company, it can also be separated by flotation when applied on PET containers with an appropriate adhesive. Building on the success of the LLC210 clear and LLC247 white grades, Jindal Films will also showcase some new prototypes which have a soft touch matt coating.

The company is present in Hall 3, Stand C46.
