Self wound over laminate films have been an industry staple for over 20 years for self-adhesive labels. When a printed label needs protection against the elements, over laminate provides that extra layer of strength and durability.The use of self-wound laminate is well established in the Flexographic and Digital narrow web label industry. The benefits of using a linerless self-wound material are well recognised.
  • Stability and strength to the base material
  • Provide surface protection
  • Enhance the appearance of the label
  • No liner going into waste stream

Self-wound laminates are also ideal for compact digital label finishers, these units are used in conjunction with desk top pigment-based ink and laser technology printers. Self-wound laminate by nature is a compact material, easy to transport, store and available in a roll size that is ideal for the smaller diameter output rolls used on compact label finishing machines.
