Orimia chooses Lintec Graphic Films to supply labels to independent Swiss research laboratory

Orimia, one of Switzerland’s leading label manufacturers, has chosen a highly chemically resistant polyester film from Lintec Graphics Films for a specialist project at an independent, market-leading Swiss research laboratory.

Producing a wide range of customised labels to companies operating in the food, pharma and construction industries, Orimia has used Lintec Graphic Films products for a number of applications in the past, and has been impressed with the company’s portfolio of effective and highly creative labelling products.

Hans Keller, Managing Director at Orimia explains: “Due to the nature of the work carried out by the research laboratory, the required labelstock for identifying medical bottles had to offer superior chemical resistance as the labels would be exposed to a variety of harsh chemicals including Acetone. Following discussions with Lintec’s Swiss supplier, Alpha Papier, they suggested to trial Lintec Graphic Films’ Durafol® label product which has been specifically designed for this type of application.”

The laboratory organised a trial period to test the performance of label stocks from different manufacturers to ensure the final product would meet the required adhesion strength. “Lintec’s Durafol® product won the laboratory’s vote of confidence as it excelled under extreme conditions due to its superb high performance coating with outstanding resistance to chemicals, humidity, elevated temperatures and UV,” continues Mr Keller. “We’ve now been asked to supply 100,000 labels to the laboratory which will be printed with their thermal transfer printer in-house.”

Andy Voss, Managing Director at Lintec Graphic Films notes: “Durafol® is a thermal transfer printable polyester which enables the production of on-demand high performance variably printed labels. The extremely tough product is ideal for use in scientific research and medical facilities as it can resist repeated harsh chemical exposure without compromising adhesion, topcoating or print.”

Durafol® polyester is available in matt white, matt silver and matt clear.
