The vast number of food retailers and packaging plants around the world that employ Ravenwood’s linerless label technology is testament that this labelling process continues to lead the way. We look at 10 reasons for choosing linerless.
1. Linerless Labels are Highly Sustainable
Due to the absence of the backing paper, there is no need to dispose of, incinerate or pay for expensive liner recycling programmes. This massively saves on CO2. World consumption of pressure sensitive labels is running at 1.4 million tonnes annually of which less than 12% is recycled. Consequently, that amounts to a whopping 616,000 tonnes of liner waste material that could potentially end up in landfill. But the good news is, this is now completely avoidable.
2. Keep Safe
Label liner can sometimes end up on the print room floor and with its silicone coating, it can leave you open to trips and falls. About 8 million people a year in the United States alone are victims to slips and falls – that’s 15% of all workplace accidents. Avoid these sticky situations by opting for linerless.
3. Less Downtime
Linerless labels allow for 40% more labels per roll, resulting in longer runs and increased uptime. Quick changeovers mean that line speeds are not compromised and you’ll spend less time cleaning up liner waste. So therefore, an increase in production efficiency is a major advantage.
4. Cost Efficiency
Linerless reels weigh up to 40% less and take up 40% less space than those with carrier backing paper. So the good news is, you’ll profit from decreased shipping and storage costs. And by eliminating the liner means avoiding disposal/recycling costs too.
5. Innovation is Our Passion
Ravenwood’s diverse range of linerless labels suit a wide variety of tray styles for food packaging applications. And what’s more, we keep on innovating. We regularly introduce new innovations to our product portfolio and that includes both new labelling formats and new machinery.
