Estate Label #6 White Pearlized Launched on West Coast


Piggyback is a pressure sensitive label stock that has one facestock and two layers of adhesive and liner.

Sweepstakes, promotions, business reply cards, and product registrations are just a few other examples that can also offer ease to the end-user, which will generate a higher response rate for your customers.

Technicote’s standard adhesive used for our piggyback products is TP170, which is a permanent acrylic adhesive, but other permanent, all-temp and removable adhesives are available with PET, Polystyrene, 40# and 50# SCK liners. Wide and narrow web widths are offered on piggyback label products to meet your customer’s demands, no matter how big or small, as well as pattern adhesive coating.

Technicote Unveils New Digital Product Portfolio


Technicote has expanded our portfolio of digital label products, which are 3-Star Certified to run on HP Indigo presses.

Digital printing technology is revolutionizing the rapidly growing label printing industry. Lower production costs, reduced set-up times, high resolution printing, short to medium run label order flexibility and less impact on the environment are just a few reasons converters are embracing this new technology. Technicote is keeping pace with this demand in the marketplace, growing its qualified digital paper and film substrates for applications such as Wine & Spirits, Specialty Foods,

Nutraceuticals, Health & Beauty, Medical, and Durable Goods.

Technicote has a unique offering in our “Dry Edge” adhesive coating process. It is currently available with most of our digital label products used with HP Indigo digital presses. This 1/8″ adhesive “Dry Edge” on each side of the roll label will significantly reduce the potential for adhesive build up on press. This is an added value option, at no additional cost!

To learn more about Technicote’s new Digital Label Products or request pricing or samples, please contact your Technicote Sales Representative directly or our Customer Service Team at 800-358-4448.

Technicote Launches 2.6 mil Pearl White Polypropylene


In response to customers’ concerns about rising raw material costs, Technicote has developed a “Value Grade” line of polypropylene products to satisfy a variety of prime label applications at an economical price. Although our 2 mil Clear and 2.3 mil White Value Plus BOPP films have been well received by converters throughout the industry, the request for a 2.6 mil Value Grade cavitated film has also been in demand. After several months of R & D, Technicote is pleased to announce the commercial launch of Pearl White Polypropylene.

2.6 mil Pearl White BOPP features a pearlescent finish, outstanding opacity and excellent stiffness properties for label dispensing. Like our Value Grade films, this product is corona treated for excellent ink adhesion and is recommended with permanent adhesives only. 2.6 mil Pearl White BOPP may be printed using standard methods.

Technicote Launches 2.3 mil Polar White Polypropylene


Technicote is pleased to announce the addition of Polar White Polypropylene to our existing line of premium top-coated polypropylene film products. Due to ongoing supply issues, Technicote has spent considerable time and effort developing better solutions. The recent introduction of our “Value Plus” white polypropylene film is an excellent lower cost solution for many applications where a corona treated film is acceptable for ink receptivity. However, a topcoated film is still the preferred choice by many converters. To meet this market need, Technicote (working in conjunction with a major domestic manufacturer of BOPP) developed 2.3 mil Polar White Polypropylene. This product is a gloss white, topcoated film with properties and characteristics that closely resemble our longstanding premium grade, 2.3 mil Majestic White.

2.3 mil Polar White BOPP is available TRIM FREE in a 5,000’ roll length out of our Terre Haute, IN manufacturing plant with our TS523 adhesive and 40# SCK liner (Item#572133) with two day service. At our West Coast manufacturing facility in Corona, CA, Polar White Polypropylene is available TRIM FREE with our AT333 adhesive and a 40# SCK release liner (Item#572135). Alternative adhesive and liner constructions are also available as a custom coat item with a five day lead time.

Sheet or roll samples of Technicote’s new Polar White Polypropylene are available by contacting your sales representative, or by calling our Customer Service Department direct at 800-358-4448.
