Chemical products (e.g. electronic cigarettes, industrial chemicals, household chemicals, ...) require, due to legislation requirements a bigger printable area on which it can communicate this required info. Chemical labels are used in harsh environments which increase expectations on the inks/ toner being resistant against these chemicals.
What is the value of digital printing?
Every changing legislation makes it a challenge for brand owners to have a large stock of labels as they can become easily obsolete. On top there can be a very high seasonality. This makes them switch to print-on-demand which allows for last minute changes when this would be needed while avoiding obsolete stock and waste costs.. This digital production solution offers you even more benefits:
- High sunlight resistant labels ensuring products retain their brand identity over time.
- By applying UV varnish achieving the required mechanical resistance.
- Full rotary, variable repeat length ensures you will maintain productivity regardless of the label dimensions.
- Choose the optimal press width optimizing productivity, and minimizing substrate waste (e.g. Xeikon CX500 : 250-508mm or Xeikon CX300 : 200-322 mm)
