Make the difference with IML

Make the difference with IML

What exactly is IML?

The term 'In Mould Labelling' is derived from the technique: a preprinted label made of polypropylene (PP) is placed in the mould. The mould has the shape of the end product and we inject the molten PP into it. It fuses with the label and, while curing, takes the shape of the mould. The result: label and packaging become one. Cool, isn’t it?


The pluses of In Mould Labelling: 

  • Exclusive appearance with excellent print quality

Your product stands out because of the professional high-resolution printing. Photos and details are beautifully shown.


  • Shorter production time and lower production costs

During the in mould labelling process packaging is produced and decorated in a single step. No more need to store blank packaging, nor to apply labels afterwards.


  • Environmentally-friendly

In mould labelling saves the environment: the packaging and the label are made of the same material and are 100% recyclable.


  • Strong and hygienic

In mould labels resist humidity and large changes in temperature: the best solution to decorate plastic containers for frozen and refrigerated products! In mould labels are also scratch resistant, cannot crack and are not susceptible to wrinkles.


  • Whole range of look & feel options

We finish the same plastic packaging product for you with a broad range of materials, inks and lacquers. In this way, your product stands out EXTRA on the shelves.
