Mactac Reports New CHILL AT Products

STOW, OH | Mactac Performance Adhesives Group is expanding its all-temperature label solutions by adding three new films to the CHILL AT product line. CHILL AT labels are custom-engineered with the latest advancements in hot-melt adhesive technology. Although formulated for demanding cold temperature applications, company says they have what is said to be a very versatile temperate range spanning –65 to +150 deg F and deliver exceptional adhesion at room temperature as well. CHILL AT is typically used in refrigerated and frozen foods, meat and poultry, cheese, and corrugated labeling and performs exceptionally well on low-surface energy substrates.

The three newest additions are as follows:

  • Chrome Polypropylene (PTS7801): Features a bright, 2.0-mil facestock said to offer an eye-catching metallic appearance. Reportedly designed for excellent printing, converting, and label dispensing, and the film’s proprietary top coating delivers outstanding adhesion for superior graphics and print receptivity on UV- and water-based flexographic, gravure, screen, and offset printing methods. Ideal for prime labeling applications in need of durability, PTS7801 is called an optimal solution for rigid and semi-rigid container applications in food packaging and on cold, damp substrates.
  • Clear Polystyrene (GFC7802): A clear, high-gloss film that delivers high moisture resistance. Commonly used as a base material for coupon and prime labeling applications, its high stiffness and low tear strength reportedly promise high-speed die-cutting and dispensing.
  • Direct Thermal Polypropylene (DPT7901): A 4.1-mil PP film created for demanding direct thermal applications that require the durability of a film, such as water-resistance. Said to have It has exceptional die-cutting and dispensing capabilities and is designed for direct thermal and flexographic printing. Featuring a more extreme adhesive that offers more mass of adhesive for even more demanding applications, DPT7901 is most often used for the labeling of cold, damp meat and seafood packaging applications, waxy corrugate, and blast freezing.

“Since its inception, CHILL AT has been a customer favorite,” says Kathy Magyar, senior marketing manager, Mactac Performance Adhesives. “From converters to end-users, those in the food packaging business are continually impressed with the all-temperature adhesive and its incredible versatility and superior performance. The new product additions feature that same great adhesion, and in fact, DPT7901 actually has an even more extreme version of the adhesive for those really challenging applications, like blast freezing.”
