Barrier IML labels

Barrier IML is one of the techniques used to produce plastic packaging with a barrier function. The purpose of this is to form a barrier between the contents of the packaging and anything harmful from the external environment that may affect the contents. With Barrier IML labels, Verstraete IML is offering the opportunity to combine IML decoration and barrier function in one single step, using a multi-layered IML film. Unlike other technologies, such as second-step handling, Barrier IML simplifies the production process considerably:

  • The packaging is produced and decorated in one step.
  • The storage of unmarked packaging becomes unnecessary - storage and transportation costs are a thing of the past.
  • The result is a decrease in energy consumption and fewer CO2 emissions.

With minimal investment, you can transform your existing packaging to Barrier IML packaging. We offer two types of IML labels with a barrier: oxygen barrier IML labels and light barrier IML labels.
