In-mould labels (IML) are labels that are placed in the mould during the manufacturing process, making them an integral part of the product. Here are some advantages of using in-mould labels:
- Durability: In-mould labels are resistant to scratching and other damage, making them ideal for harsh environments or frequently handled products.
- High-quality finish: The label can be printed with high-quality graphics, images and other visual elements, enhancing the product’s appearance and promoting brand recognition.
- Cost savings: The process of integrating the label into the product can save time, labour and cost, as there is no need for a separate labelling process.
- Structural integrity: The label can actually strengthen the product’s structural integrity, reducing the need for additional materials.
