According to Andy Voss, managing director of Lintec Europe, “a number of niche products developed in Japan […] are now being launched for the European market”.
One of these products is Repeel, which incorporates microsphere adhesive technology that limits the adhesive contact with the application surface. The material is suitable for the production of cardboard box logistics labels, point-of-sale labels and book cover labels. Repeel features ultra-low adhesion and can be removed and reapplied with ease on a variety of surfaces, such as paper, wood, glass or metal.
“Repeel is the first in a number of exciting new products we plan to launch to the European market in the coming months.” concludes Andy Voss.
