Rising Raw Material Costs Impact Pressure Sensitive Label Market


Technicote continues to receive significant cost increases in 2010 on paper, film, foil, adhesives and silicones used to manufacture our roll label products. Many of our suppliers have increased prices multiple times with potential for more increases later in 2010. The major cause for these inflationary conditions is material capacity constraints, combined with growing demand in an improving North American economy.
