Application and use
HERMAtherm Bio phenol-free suits well as label material on food packaging and gives ex-cellent representation of EAN and other barcodes. As economy thermal papers are not equipped with a protective surface coat, they should not be exposed to water or greasy substances. The image may fade over a period of time if applied to surfaces containing plasticisers (e.g. flexible polyvinyl chloride).
Printing speeds of up to 250 mm/s are possible in thermal direct printing.
The surface of HERMAtherm Bio phenol-free offers a good quality of imprint when solventfree inks and varnishes are applied. The inks should be suitable for printing thermal papers. Web temperature during curing should not exceed 50 °C in order to prevent premature imaging or discolouration.
The pulp for this paper comes from FSC® certified forest management and other controlled sources.
The pressure-sensitive adhesive 62Q has been specially developed for direct food labelling. In addition, Adhesive 62Q can also be used on compostable packaging materials. Slight condensation on the packaging film should not present a problem.
The supercalendered glassine is perfectly suited for assignment in labelling machines equipped with optical or mechanical scanners.
The self-adhesive material has been certified as compostable materials for home and garden composting (2021-2) by DIN CERTCO GmbH according to NF T51-800:2015. The certificates are valid until 31.01.2029.
