Lecta, a leading European manufacturer and distributor of specialty paper for labels and flexible packaging, as as well as coated and non-coated papers for publishing and commercial printing, has introduced Adestor Metal HG WS – a high-gloss metallized self-adhesive facestock with wet-strength properties. It’s designed for high-end labelling applications such as cava, champagne, wine, beer and liqueurs, decorative labels and labels for luxury cosmetics and perfumes. This new grade was developed especially for labelling refrigerated bottles for coolers as well as recoverable containers. “Adestor Metal HG WS ensures that the label will be in tip-top condition, protecting the image of the final product in all its applications,” said the company. It’s suitable for printing via conventional offset, UV offset, flexo (solvent, UV, water) and letterpress (solvent and UV). All Adestor products are manufactured under ISO 14001 and EMAS environmental standards and ISO 50001 energy efficiency, ISO 9001 quality and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standards. They’re also available with PEFC and FSC Chain-of-Custody forest certification, upon request.
