Popularity of digital label finishing systems and digital label presses leads to increased need for overlamination film

TORONTO and VANCOUVER, British Columbia and NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DuraFast Label Company, a Toronto-based company offering digital color label presses, digital label finishing systems, label cutter and printing supplies, and durable label materials to businesses to produce their own labels, has recently added STA Overlaminates to its product offering.

Overlaminate film is a clear polypropylene or polyester film with a clear adhesive that is applied to printed labels to protect and strengthen them. This lamination layer increases the printed labels' resistance to water, chemicals, scratches, UV light, and oil, and it gives the labels a smooth, shiny surface.

According to Basat Khalifa from DuraFast Label Company, producers who use digital label presses to print their own labels are increasingly turning to sophisticated digital label finishing systems to laminate, cut, remove waste material, slit, and rewind the labels onto new cores for application. As the label roll is processed by the digital label finishing system, the overlamination film is applied. The overlaminate adheres to the labels, leaving a crystal clear protective coating on top.

Demand for STA Overlaminates is rising thanks to the popularity of digital label presses (such as the Primera CX1200, Afinia L801, iSys Label Edge 850 and UniNet iColor 700) and digital label finishing systems (like the Primera FX1200, DPR Scorpio Plus, Impression Technology Europe's Eclipse LF3, Afinia DLF-1000, and the Afinia DLP-2000 which prints and finishes in a single process).

DuraFast Label Company has responded by partnering with overlaminate manufacturers such as STA, LLC, a leading provider of overlaminate film products. DuraFast Label Company now offers STA 1218 and STA 8130 overlaminates in 8.25-inch by 2500-foot rolls compatible with all of the popular digital label finishing systems in use today.

DuraFast also accommodates custom requirements, configuring overlamination roll sizes to each customer's specifications. If you need longer or wider overlaminate film rolls, talk to a DuraFast sales associate or email your requirements.

In addition, DuraFast will be offering other overlaminate films such as SuperClear (for a "No Label look"), Matte in various weights, Thermal Transfer Printable BOPP and PET, and more.
