Hot Melt is a polymer-based adhesive that is an excellent alternative to waterbased-glue because it is fast-acting and withstands humidity. This labeling technology has been the preferred method employed in bulk production that requires high output demands with a fast set speed and the ability to meet and maintain a high level of hygiene.
Holt Melt Labeling is especially appreciated in the cold food industries that need product packaging labels that adhere quickly and easily, conform to various types of packaging, and stay in place for the product’s life cycle. One of the greatest benefits of hot melt adhesives is that they deliver unmatched versatility for any temperature application – warm or cold.
The term “roll-fed” illustrates the type of label and the way it is fed into the labeling machine. It describes the label as a substrate made of film or paper on a continuous roll without a liner or adhesive pre-applied. A desirable side effect of using hot melt roll-fed labels is reducing waste and promoting high application rates. Labeling machinery cuts the film into individual labels as it is dispensed for each container, then adds an adhesive as the label wraps around it. Roll-fed labels use fewer materials in the application process, and the cost difference is noticeable with any production size but gets more substantial with larger production runs.
The greatest advantage of this type of labeling is that packaging is appealing on every side; 360-degree coverage may provide that extra visual impact to attract customers. Label rolls can be prepared in full color and even enhanced flexographic printing.
