Lecta extends its range of metallized papers with a new wet-strength grade for non-returnable containers
Metalvac E LWS is a light wet-strength metallized paper for glue-applied labeling of non-returnable and plastic containers such as PET bottles for water and beverages, and single-use glass bottles for water and beer. The technical properties of this new product means it can withstand the cool, moist conditions the container undergoes during the labelling process and subsequent conservation in ice buckets and refrigerators.
Metalvac E LWS is friction and tear resistant, and has excellent lay-flat properties, providing optimal results on the high-speed bottling line. It is available in 63 and 70 g/m², with the following finishes: smooth and embossed (linen, brushed and pinhead). Metalvac E LWS is suitable for offset, flexo and letterpress printing, both conventional and UV, and rotogravure, and is available with PEFCTM and FSC® certifications upon request.
