BIAXPLEN films pass tests at Heidelberg


Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), a global leader in in-mould label (IML) printing solutions, has successfully tested BIAXPLEN’s IML films in Germany.

The tests at the Heidelberg Print Media Centre in Wiesloch-Walldorf were carried out to evaluate the performance of the new films offered by SIBUR’s subsidiary. The following grades were chosen for testing: SOIL – 60 μm (pearlized, voided, 0.55 g/cm3), STG – 57 μm (transparent), SWL – 55 μm (solid white, 0.93 g/cm3), and SOL – 60 μm (white, 0.88 g/cm3). They are widely used in injection-moulded labels for rigid plastic packaging suitable for storing ice cream, mayonnaise, or granular, liquid or pasty products. An eight-colour Speedmaster XL 106 press with a coating unit, CutStar roll sheeter and special equipment packages (for ultra-thin, IML and non-absorbent materials) was used for the testing, together with foil and LED-UV inks and fast-drying water-based dispersion coatings for IML applications.

Andrey Slobodchikov, Head of Product Management and Marketing, Heidelberg CIS: “We achieved stable production speeds used across the industry for printing in-mould labels on sheetfed offset machines. The films performed in line with their respective specifications and can be used to make in-mould labels without tweaking Speedmaster offset presses. With BIAXPLEN materials, Speedmaster machines can use the same settings as with other IML materials available on the market.”

Sergey Marchenko, Senior Product Development Expert, BIAXPLEN: “We would like to thank Heidelberg for these tests and are very proud and honoured to learn that it has certified the quality of our IML films. Heidelberg has vast experience working with the leading film manufacturers, and now BIAXPLEN has joined their ranks as an approved supplier of materials for in-mould labelling. Successful completion of the tests was a logical next step in our efforts to create solutions for sophisticated BOPP film processing.”
