Innovia Films, producer of BOPP films, is launching a newly developed engineered two side coated cavitated film for pressure sensitive labelling (PSL) applications which is marketed as Rayoface AQBHA.

The polypropylene (PP) film, explained by the company, offers ‘outstanding’ printability with a backside coating specifically designed for hot melt pressure sensitive label coating. 

The film is 58 microns thick, has a printable top-coating, and an adhesive receptive coated surface on the reverse side that provides anti-curl and migration properties with hot melt adhesives. 

Innovia films describes the product, AQBHA, as having very good moisture resistance and cold temperature performance, making it the ‘perfect’ material for fridge and freezer applications. ‘As more SKU’s move to polypropylene containers, having a label made from the same material supports the design for recycling criteria for filmic facestocks,’ explained Lucija Kralj, business unit director labels EMEA.

Rayoface AQBHA has undertaken extensive hot melt barrier testing and the film remains flat through the whole duration of the test, mitigating any facestock material issues with hot melt coating for PSL.
