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.
