Lintec’s new oil-tolerant labelstock range

For easy application of labels on greasy surfaces


Recently, Lintec introduced a new oil-tolerant labelstock range comprising three products ‒ 0T8060 white polypropylene film, 0T5040 white polyester and OT5050 clear polyester film. The labelstocks feature an oil-absorbing adhesive that allow labels to be easily applied to oily surfaces that typically need to be cleaned before application.

Soichiro Fujinaga, technical manager of Lintec Europe said, “Within industries such as cosmetics, automobiles and food, it can be difficult for labels to adhere and remain intact on oily products. With the introduction of the oil-absorbing labelstock range, we hope to present a simple yet effective product to this common problem. The oil-absorbent qualities of the labelstock provide better adhesion to greasy surfaces.”

Labelstocks, which adhere firmly to smooth and textured substrates, eliminate the need to degrease and in turn save production time and cost of cleaning material. The product range is ideal for steel, automobile components, industrial identification labels and for general labeling of foods and cosmetics. The labelstocks can be printed with conventional ink or thermal transfer ribbon and will remain legible and firmly affixed under all conditions.

“The range demonstrates Lintec’s ongoing commitment to innovation and ability to provide products that meet the growing demands of businesses across a range of industries. We hope that with this range, brand owners can remain assured and have peace of mind that the quality of their label will not be compromised,” said Fujinaga.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
