Zanders Extends Line of Label Papers

BERGISCH GLADBACH, GERMANY | Zanders, supplier of specialty papers and boards for labels, packaging, and graphical applications, manufactures a range of e label papers under the Zanlabel brand in addition to its premium brand Chromolux

The existing Zanlabel range of one-side double-coated label papers will now be marketed under the name of Zanlabel gloss, and it will be supplemented by label papers with a linen embossing. The company is also extending its range of Zanlabel products to include an uncoated label paper with what is said to be a natural feel. To ensure clear differentiation from other Zanlabel products, it is called Zanlabel touch and is available with vergé and linen embossing.

“Our new label paper has excellent finishing properties as a result of its special surface treatment,” says John Tucker, managing director at Zanders. “We specifically developed Zanlabel touch for beer, wine, and spirits labels that are intended to underline the product’s naturalness, individuality, craftsmanship, or authenticity. Craft beer brewers and wine and spirit makers can use Zanlabel touch to give their products a look that reflects their positioning.”

Uncoated Zanlabel touch label paper is manufactured from FSC-certified, sustainable cellulose. Company says the wet strength label paper is suitable for returnable bottles yet delivers excellent quality print, hot foil and blind embossing results, running, and punching properties.

Linen embossing on Zanlabel gloss, which adds a non-slip finish to beer and other bottle labels, is for the brewing industry’s returnable bottles and other applications. “Zanlabel gloss with linen embossing ensures excellent running properties in printing, processing, embossing, and punching, and it is also ideal for cold and hot foil embossing,” says Tucker.

Zanlabel gloss is double coated on one side and available in non-wet strength (NWS), light wet strength (LWS), and wet strength (WS) version. It is said to meet the requirements of the packaging industry and be ideal for many applications such as wet glue labels for disposable, returnable, and PET bottles, food and non-food container labels, and sleeves. Smooth surface reportedly delivers excellent printing results with maximum ink gloss.
