PPG to showcase durable TESLIN label stock at Labelexpo Americas 2018

Synthetic label stock engineered to stand up to punishing environments

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 12:56 pm EDT



PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that it will showcase TESLIN® label stock at Labelexpo Americas 2018, which will be held September 25-27 in Rosemont, Illinois.

Teslin substrate is a highly printable synthetic material that excels in applications that demand a tough, high-performance material. It is available in four standard label stock varieties – General-Purpose Permanent, Ultimate Bond, General-Purpose Removable and BS 5609-Certified. It also can be produced in custom configurations for nearly any label application.

Teslin substrate contains micropores that absorb inks, toners, adhesives and coatings, locking them into its structure for long-lasting durability and security. This unique characteristic makes Teslin label stock ideal for applications that include GHS-compliant chemical containers, brand protection, tamper-evident security, medical/pharmaceutical products and high-end wine and spirits.

Teslin label stock is widely compatible with print technologies, from digital inkjet, laser and thermal transfer to flexographic and offset. It offers bubble-free application and provides a long-lasting adhesive bond that can endure extreme conditions. The static-dissipative nature of Teslin label stock helps minimize static buildup during digital printing, improving throughput and print quality. The product also enhances the security of printed text through its ability to absorb and lock in inks and toners with no additional processing or expense. 

“We will be showcasing a variety of printed samples of Teslin label stock at Labelexpo Americas so converters, printers and packaging specialists can touch and feel the print quality,” said Fabrizio Mandingorra, PPG global segment manager, Teslin labels. “They also can pick up a free copy of ‘The Highly Unofficial Label Industry Guide to Rosemont.’ This convenient guide features details of local eateries with personal recommendations from some well-known individuals in the label industry.”
