Wash-off labels

Wash-off labels are transparent sticky labels that may be attached to any deposit return glass bottles (beer, soft drinks, etc.).

 

Advantages of wash-off labels:

 

  • Attractive exclusive design

An important characteristic of the label is its transparency. The label may be designed so that the text appears to be written directly on the bottle and margins of the label may be proficiently hidden.

  • Easily washed off

By using 1–2% soda solution one may easily wash off the label glue from the bottle at 65–80°C temperature.  It does not matter how long the label remained attached to a bottle (a month or a year) – the wash off feature of a glue is preserved for a long time.

  • Resistant

Wash-off labels must be pasted on dry bottles. Immediately after the application, the label becomes resistant to room temperature water and weeping, UV light, as well as temperature fluctuations.

  • May be used in normal washing conditions

Wash-off labels do not clog washing machines. They do not tend to wind up or shrink significantly. The tests proved that as little as 10 labels remained on bottles after washing 20,000 bottles in a KRONE type washing machine. All other labels were successfully removed.

  • Environmentally friendly

After removing a label, the glue and paint remain on the label. Therefore, it does not pollute water used for washing.

Along with transparent adhesive wash-off labels, we manufacture matte and glossy paper labels and polypropylene labels with wash-off glue that are used for the marking of deposit return bottles.
