In-mould labelling is a technique whereby a plastic label is inserted into the mould during manufacture. The label thus forms an integral part of the container, resulting in attractively labelled packaging. IML containers are often highly decorative and, because the label is made of plastic, are also 100% recyclable.
There is continuous innovation in the field of IML. For example, labels are getting ever thinner, which means that the impact on the environment is falling. You can also now choose from various options, including an EVOH barrier label to increase the shelf life of your products or a label printed on both sides so that you can provide more information and communicate better with your end user.
