Our Product Offer
Our Services and Capabilities
Our team of technical and applications specialists support our customers by providing application solutions for the most demanding labeling challenges. They are dedicated to providing end-use solutions with innovative thinking, sophisticated laboratory capabilities, shorter product development lead times and strong vendor relationships.
Acucote can topcoat the majority of our facestocks for UV Inkjet, Laser/Toner and HP print systems. Depending on the selected media and the print method, a topcoat could be required to achieve acceptable print quality, improve ink anchorage, enhance image clarity, reduce bleed, improve curing, allow for an increased run speed and increase label durability. These facestocks can be paired with a variety of stocked adhesive and liner options.
Dry Release Technology
Our extensive selection of dry release coupon and affixed card solutions are perfect for creating instant redeemable coupons (IRCs), available with a single and two-sided messaging. They are ideal to create promotional labels, temporary IDs, membership cards, game pieces and more. LiftCote® and Diamond-Cote® solutions are available with a wide selection of adhesives and liners.
Blockout and Colored Adhesives
Our black blockout adhesive is a visually-superior product, offering the highest degree of opacity in the industry. We also provide custom adhesive coloring capabilities that allow you to achieve branding and anti-counterfeiting, tamper-evident solutions for your customers. Blockout and colored adhesive options are available with permanent and removable adhesives.
Pattern Adhesive Coating
We are able to pattern coat all adhesives – excluding microspheres. Linear patterns require a minimum adhesive coverage of 50% across the web with a minimum adhesive lane requirement of 3/8”. Non adhesive lanes can be up to 3” with a minimum of 1/8” lane. Work with our Application Development Team (ADT) to develop your specific pattern specification.
Both supported (with a carrier or mid-ply) and unsupported (no mid-ply) transfer tapes are available. Supported transfer tapes are compatible with a variety of adhesives including removables. Our solutions allow customers to convert non self-adhesive material to a self-adhesive application by delaminating a liner and replacing that liner with a selected media. Custom pattern adhesive coating and single color printed liner are also available with these solutions.
Offering a full line of halfbacks (silicone up liner / adhesive / silicone up liner), piggybacks (facestock / adhesive / silicone up liner / adhesive / silicone up liner) and customer-specific multi-faced constructions developed with our Applications Team. Custom pattern adhesive coating and single color printed liner are also available with these solutions.
Custom Printed Liner
Ideal for branding and product identification; display custom text, images or logos in a single color on the reverse side of a silicone-coated liner. Available printed liners include 30#, 38#, 40#, 40# Natural, 3.2 mil LF, 60#, 78# and 83# paper liners. Liners are available in multiple widths and release levels ranging from easy to extra tight. We can print on the backside of facestocks prior to PS laminating for overt and covert enhanced security.
We provide a variety of silicone coated release liners to both the pressure-sensitive adhesive, forms and industrial markets. Our silicone coating process uses environmentally-sound 100% solids technology to yield solutions up to 62″. Available liner bases include paper, polyester, poly-coated kraft and custom options – all with customizable release systems from easy to extra tight. Custom pattern silicone coating is available.
We specialize in the adhesive coating and lamination of customers’ proprietary facestocks as well as applying top coatings that are receptive to specific printing processes. We accept customer-supplied facestocks, adhesives, release liners and base stocks – and then manufacture the desired laminate using one to all of a customer’s raw materials.
We can sheet pressure-sensitive and nonpressure-sensitive papers, films, synthetics, boardstocks and additional specialty stocks. Our North Carolina sheeting capabilities range from 12” to 42” W and 13” to 48” L and our Ohio location can sheet 13” to 60” W and 13” to 100” L. Our re-moisturization process ensures that sheeted products layflat for optimal performance.
