Cosmetics and personal care items are among the fastest growing industrial sectors globally. The need of the hour is to create appealing packaging that grabs consumer attention. This requires coding and labeling technologies that can print reliably and legibly on many different package shapes and sizes without impacting the package design.
Traceability requirements and more stringent consumer protection laws mandate printing of more information.
Our advantages in the cosmetics and personal care industry include
Overspill resistant inks
Whether soaps or alcohol-based hand sanitizers, we have inks that resist.
High quality print
Our industry-leading print resolution across a range of printers allows printing of high quality codes that don’t detract from product packaging or branding artwork.
Retail shelves are the modern-day battlefields. Competing products vie for consumer attention and brand managers obsess over packaging artwork. CPL can offer discreet and sharp codes that fit in small spaces but still meet all the statutory requirements.
Improper printing technology or ink selection can lead to smudged prints on laminated and non-porous surfaces, especially on fast moving production lines that leaves little time for ink to dry.
Control Print carries several fast or instantly drying printing technologies that can print large amount of information on non-porous surfaces. “Generic coding” solutions give manufacturers the capability to print product information, barcodes, logos, ingredients lists and other information during packaging. This reduces the need to store pre-printed films.
Getting quality codes on flow wraps and soap packages requires careful selection of inks. Wax on the packaging paper sometimes softens and transfers to the printing side, which can prevent ink from bonding.
Coding and marking on aerosol cans is usually challenging due to the metal finish and curved printing surface. With an industry-leading 50 mm throw distance our CIJ makes it possible to print even on highly curved surfaces as well as printing from the bottom-up onto the container.
