The LabelPack division of Finnish company Ahlstrom has developed a new triple coated paper for the self-adhesive label market.

Launched under the name Extrachrome X3, the company says the labels offer high gloss and whiteness as well as ease of printing. The company also claims that these benefits make the labels an alternative application to traditionally cast coated paper labels.

Wines, spirits and fine food should prove to be the most appropriate products for the labels.

Ahlstrom took care to give Extrachrome X3 labels extra strength. This ensures trouble free die cutting and matrix stripping for the printer and perfect labeling on fast machines for the label user.

Suitable for offset, flexo and letterpress, X3 also meets requirements that label printers have, such as runability, print contrast and excellent ink gloss. Furthermore the labels are also UV varnishable and have a high varnish holdout that can result in savings on varnish costs.

Self-adhesive face stock paper is a high-tech substrate, which is said to offer trouble free performance throughout the labelling process, from laminating to label dispensing at the final user.

Ahlstrom's LabelPack division is one of the world's leading suppliers of release liners and face stock papers to the self-adhesive industry. Extrachrome X3 is produced at the division's Kauttua plant in Finland. This site has long been involved in the development and making of top quality coated papers and is specialised in producing base papers for pressure sensitive labels for food, beverages, toiletries plus pharmaceutical and technical labeling.
