Oak Harbor, OH (16 September 2016) – acpo, ltd. unveiled their new line of barrier films and security technologies at Labelexpo Americas. Recognizing the desire for innovative products in the label and flexible packaging markets, show visitors were among the first to see acpo’s new anti-counterfeit, soft touch and high barrier flexible packaging film products.
Counterfeiting costs brand owners and U.S. businesses over $250 billion annually. To help combat this, acpo has developed multiple self-wound overlaminate products with embedded security features. With options of hidden customized messages, visual and audible authentication or layered technologies, acpo makes anti-counterfeit measures easy to implement and verify.
As previously announced, acpo has partnered with Sun Chemical to provide SunBar coated films to flexible packaging converters. These clear films will give converters a cost effective alternative to multi-layer and PVDC coated barrier films while providing ultra-high oxygen barrier properties, flex crack resistance and thermal resistance to support high speed filling on packaging lines and pouch converting equipment. Excellent print reception will eliminate the need for a third layer which supports package lightweighting, economics and efficiency.
acpo’s soft touch films can be utilized on both labels and flexible packaging where a high end, luxury look and feel is desired. The soft tactile sensation and matte finish will set the end product apart from others.
