When in-mould labelling (IML) was invented in the 1970s, it revolutionised the entire labelling process. From then on, this process only kept getting better with time and has gained immense popularity in recent years. During the process, a preprinted polypropylene (PP) label is placed in the mould. The molten PP fuses with the label as it cures, producing a beautiful, durable closure. The label eventually becomes an integral part of the product.

Piber Plastics is one of Australia’s most experienced in-mould labelling specialists, offering solutions for a wide range of plastic products. If you need a better labelling solution for your products, consider in-mould labelling.

Here are five advantages of in-mould labelling:

  1. Optimisation:
  2. With in-mould labelling in addition to minimising waste, you save time and money spent on labour, as all the post-labelling operations are eliminated.

  3. Versatility:
  4. One of the biggest advantages of In mould labelling is that these labels can adapt to all kinds of shapes. Whether you are making tubs, containers, glasses, caps, or boxes, you can easily label them all.

  5. Quality:
  6. In mould labelling offers picture perfect graphic resolution, making it the best choice among its alternatives. Furthermore, since it’s integrated into the product, it’s perceived as an organic part of the whole.

  7. Reuse:
  8. Also, if the In mould labels have the same materials as the containers and the containers are recyclable, the label will be too.

  9. Durability:
  10. In mould labels aren’t affected by rough usage. There’s no wear and tear. In addition, they can resist the high temperatures of industrial washing or the transformation process.

You can find in-mould labels in almost every other industry, whether it’s food, beverage, cosmetics, healthcare, or pharmaceuticals. In-mould labelling is used for labelling all kinds of products.
