Ralf Ottilie has joined HERMA’s Self-adhesive Materials Division in early 2018, taking over responsibility for the sales areas UK, Middle East, and parts of Eastern Europe. He brings extensive experience in the paper and printing industry to his new job.
460 piles, 300 concrete mixers, and three 60 metre cranes • The new coating plant, which is taking shape now, presents special challenges for civil engineers and building technology
Perfect opacity with maximum migration safety • The polypropylene film HERMA PP white extra tc (grade 880) is now available combined with the HERMAperfectOpaque adhesive as a standard product.
Siliconized release liner can be found wherever there are labels: large amounts are generated, for instance, in the consumer goods and food industry and in logistics. Despite being mostly discarded as waste, this material is ideally suited for recycling, which is not only climate-friendly but also counteracts current shortages of certain resources.
Self-adhesive materials expert HERMA and Belgian label printer Conti-Label have opened a new chapter in the automated dispatching of self-adhesive materials. By means of the ERP software CERM, all steps that are part of an order are handled via EDI-processable messages for the first time: order placement, order confirmation, delivery note, and invoice.
HERMA’s Self-adhesive Materials Division has conducted extensive tests with the PicoColour, a digital UV inkjet label press from Dantex.
In response to growing demand for pure white labels with a clear design, the HERMAexquisite product range has been extended by two new products.
A trophy for the global innovation in low-migration label adhesives: at this year’s Label Industry Global Awards, HERMAsuperTack (63Vst) won the Innovation Award for companies with more than 300 employees, honouring the innovative power and creativity of the family-owned business from Filderstadt, Germany.
• HERMA introduces a coloured adhesive that provides perfect opacity as well as unchanged adhesive qualities – moreover, it is suitable for direct contact with foodstuffs. • On show at the upcoming Labelexpo 2017 trade fair, the new HERMAperfectOpaque range can thereby cover even critical applications with ease. • Label materials and adhesives can now be flexibly combined to achieve optimal opacity for various applications. • Thanks to the multi-layer technology, it is now possible to produce opaque Eco thermal adhesive materials without any compromises regarding tack and final adhesion.
. The HERMAsuperPerm (63S) adhesive is especially suited for long-term labelling in the field of product identification. . Additionally, it is used where authenticity, security, and inspection seals are required. . Sealing labels equipped with this adhesive cannot be removed, even from lacquered cardboard, plastics, or steel, without destruction of the label or the packaging surface.
In long-term labelling for product identification, the longevity of the labelling material is just one factor. Another key characteristic is the permanent final adhesion of the adhesive.
Rough or difficult-to-label surfaces are a challenge for product identification in production processes. It is crucial for the adhesive to ensure immediate tack despite the very high labelling speed, preventing the label from slipping out of place and its corners from protruding.
New laser die cutting system delivers sharp outlines • Using HERMA self-adhesive materials and HP printing technology, AB Graphic International has produced a new sample catalogue containing abstract and highly complex label shapes. • Catalogue prompted by market launch of redesigned laser die cutting system Digilase S3. • Uniform adhesive application predestines HERMA label stock for conversion by laser die cutting.
Until now, label printers and users had to make compromises in cases where nothing must show through the label material: either the choice of suitable coloured label materials was very small, or they had to rely on a material with a coloured adhesive.
Unrivalled transparency in wet conditions • The new adhesive 62F delivers the no-label look even in challenging conditions, including extreme moisture. • Endowed with excellent durability and transparency, it is especially well suited to critical applications in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical segments. • For the food industry, the adhesive has been granted unconditional approval by ISEGA.
Excellent printability with no need for pre-treatment • HERMA PP white gloss was developed primarily for use on HP Indigo digital presses. • A special surface coating permits excellent printing results and supreme ink adhesion of HP ElectroInks. • The film (grade 877) is suitable for both standard applications and demanding conditions.
