Although our eco-friendly (S9500) labels are ideal for all kinds of applications, they are especially suited for products where the complete packaging should be biodegradable, and where indirect or direct contact with dry foodstuff is required. The seams (edges) of this type of label material may safely come into direct contact with all kinds of foodstuffs, making it perfect for packaging food. Furthermore, according to FDA regulations, the adhesive used may also come into direct contact with foodstuff, or can be separated by a functional barrier.
This type of label would be perfect to use on wine labelling, as it ensures that not only the glass can be recycled, but the label can be absorbed in this process too, as it is biodegradable and eco-friendly. A lot of different materials can affect the ability of the recycling plant to process recyclable materials, so ensuring that you are following regulations is an extremely important matter.
These biodegradable stickers are printed with conventional techniques like many other labels we stock. Due to the open and textured nature of the face-material, the best results are from those techniques where maximum conformability of the printing plate is produced, such as where flexo and offset are concerned.
These printing techniques always deliver excellent results, and are always in line with the desired image, using offset and screen.
Our eco-friendly labels are made of a matt-white, uncoated, wood-free printing paper composed of 95% sugarcane fibres and 5% hemp and linen. These labels are specifically designed for wine labelling and food packaging, where the complete packaging should be biodegradable or where direct or indirect contact with dry foodstuff is required.
