In-Mold Labeling (IML) is capturing attention in the North American market, though it’s been popular in Europe for more than two decades. Airlite is one of the industry leaders in IML, providing a comprehensive line of stock IML containers and lids, as well as unlimited customized solutions.
With IML, a pre-printed plastic label is introduced into the injection mold and during the molding process the label bonds with the molten plastic. The result is a label with superb graphic quality that is now an integral component of the container or lid.
The advantages of IML include:
- superb graphics, including photographic images
- suitability for non-round containers and lids
- options including full wraparound, three-sided, or five-sided labels.
- labels give the container a quality texture that add to the consumer experience
