IML - In Mould Labelling

Are you looking for high quality and crisp decoration for your packaging? Then IML (i.e.  in mould labelling) is your solution.

IML is an ingenious technique wherein the label is integrated in the plastic packaging during the manufacturing process, making the label an integral part of the packing.

First a draft of your label is printed on a PP film and is punched in the correct shape. Subsequently  the draft is placed in an injection mould (the shape of a package). When the still liquid plastic is injected in the mould the label melts together with the container. In this way you create a perfectly sharp and extremely durable label free of wear and tear.
