It’s not just a plastic cup, it is shaping and decoration in a single step.
In-mold labeling, or IML for short, is a popular decoration technology for plastic packaging. Having utilized the process for more than 27 years, Greiner Packaging has seen first hand the numerous benefits of this state-of-the-art technology.
In-mold labeling allows the package shaping and decoration processes to be completed in a single-step. The label is placed in the injection molding tool in which the product is shaped, therefore bonding it permanently to the finished product. The texture of the label surfaces may be matte, rough, shiny or soft to the touch—offering diverse possibilities while always achieving high-resolution photo quality results.
Each packaging element—ranging from cups to lids or other components—may be decorated with the IML process and each application may be varied according to your needs. Utilizing this technology ensures that high-quality and decorative products are produced in a single-step hygienic production process, resulting in shorter production time and lower production costs.
It’s not just a plastic cup, it is an efficient way to attract the attention your product deserves.
