As part of the ESG strategy, Sihl continues to lead the way in FACESTOCK, creating products and solutions that make the best possible use of available resources.

As a pioneer, Sihl is launching the first inkjet film based on 90% PCR
(= Post Consumer Recycled) BOPET at the end of April! It offers identical product benefits to its non-PCR counterpart and is ideally suited for razor-sharp product labels in print on demand. In addition to the resource-saving grades with reduced weight, this is another step towards a “green” range.

7054 PICOFILM CPr-50 gloss IHG1 is a transparent FACESTOCK film for the production of product labels. The front side has a glossy coating for variable information printing with water-based inkjet and is suitable for both dye and pigment inks. The product has the same mechanical properties, so it is easy to process – just like the non-PCR grades (7858/7852) – while offering identical benefits: fast drying, with high colour brilliance, sharp-edged prints and good water resistance. The total weight of this film has also been reduced: This means more labels per roll and thus higher productivity.

Sihl FACESTOCK coatings combined with print-on-demand printing technology make it easier and more affordable to produce exactly the amount of labels needed while meeting customers’ personalisation requirements.  This reduces waste and CO2 emissions enormously.
