What is In-Mold Labeling?
   In-mold labeling is the process of inserting a label made from various substrates, die cut to size or preformed, into the mold prior to injecting resin. The label bonds to the surface of the molded part when a thin layer of the label re-melts and solidifies with the resin of the part. Some labels are made from a micro-porous material and the resin flows into the pores of the label bonding the label to the part.

Why Use In-Mold Labeling?

  • Branding
  • Durability
  • Permanence
  • Add value to product
  • Safety Messaging
  • Shelf Presence or Point of Purchase appeal

Advantages of IML

  • Labels can be printed in offset up to 8 colors
  • The labels are made from PP film which is an excellent medium for high resolution and photo-realistic image production
  • Choose between matte or high gloss, partially transparent or full printed, smooth or textured surfaces. It is also possible to fully or partially cover the pack.
  • As the injection and labeling is done in a single step process, therefore, it is not possible to remove or replace the label as it is permanently bonded to the pack.
