Make Your Products Stand Out with In Mould Labelling

How IML Works

During the In Mould Labelling process a preprinted polypropylene (PP) label is placed in a mould. When molten PP is added to the mould, it fuses with the label as it cures and becomes a beautiful, durable closure.

Benefits of IML:

  1. Outstanding Print Quality
    Offset printing technique ensures high-resolution images, with up to 8 colors, for your labels.
  2. Durable
    In mould labels (IMLs) are humidity resistant and temperature stable—making them an excellent choice for frozen and refrigerated products.
  3. Hygienic Scratches, cracks and wrinkles in labels or packaging can harbor bacteria. Closures with IMLs are scratch resistant, cannot crack or shrink and are not susceptible to wrinkles, which makes them more hygienic.
  1. Shorter Production Time and Lower Production Costs
    Closures with IMLs are produced in a single step—which means no need to transport or store blank closures.
  2. Environmentally-friendly
    IMLs and closures consist of the same material and can therefore be fully recycled.

Closures with IMLs are perfect for:

  • Butter, margarine and other spreads
  • Ice cream
  • Yogurt
  • Candy
  • Nutraceuticals and supplements
  • Cosmetics
  • Household & garden products
  • Paint
  • Tobacco
