Monday, November 02, 2015
The world’s largest event for the beverage industry will be held in Nuremberg, Germany, from November 10-12.
Lecta, a European leader in the manufacturing and distribution of specialty papers for labels and flexible packaging, will again participate in the BrauBeviale trade show. This year’s event expects to gather nearly 1,150 exhibitors and more than 37,000 industry professionals. It will feature the latest developments and trends in raw materials, equipment, technologies, logistics and marketing for beer, water and other beverages.
Lecta’s range of high-vacuum metallized papers, Metalvac, will be on exhibit with its 100% recyclable products designed for premium beverage labels and for label converters:
- Wet-glue labels: for beer, water, spirits and wine. These papers are available with high, medium and low moisture resistance and are ideal for returnable and one-way bottles.
- Pressure-sensitive labels: papers designed to be used as self-adhesive facestock for labels.
The Metalvac range is available in gloss, matte or embossed (pin-head, brushed and linen) finishes. It is also used for the inner-liners of cigarette packets, gift paper and for use in the food industry.
“Endless possibilities” is the new swatchbook for Lecta’s Creaset one-side coated paper line, designed for the labels and flexible packaging segment. Its range of products for beverage labels includes high wet-strength Creaset HWS papers (available with smooth and embossed linen finishes), ideal for beer labels, and light wet-strength Creaset LWS papers for beverage and water bottles. Creaset LWS is available with fungistatic treatment for applications that require a barrier against the spread of fungi.
Our Adestor self-adhesive products from the “Labels to Celebrate” collection allow for elegant product decoration on wine, cava, spirits, beer and water bottles. Different combinations of paper and film facestock, as well as water-based acrylic adhesives, are included in this product range featuring new facestock such as the gloss pearl finish Adestor Glitter WS, with anti-moisture and anti-mildew treatment perfect for cavas and champagne, and the moisture-resistant Adestor Embossed Martele WS, with an embossed white martele finish, suitable for wines and spirits. The recommended adhesives for these applications are the standard A251 permanent adhesive for bottles stored in a dry place and the BC361 Plus permanent adhesive, designed especially for glass recipients subject to ice-bucket immersion (ice-test resistance).
All of Lecta’s products are manufactured to ISO 9001 quality standards, ISO 14001 environmental management and EMAS standards, ISO 50001 energy management standard and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety standards. They are also available with PEFCTM and FSC® Chain-of-Custody certifications, thereby guaranteeing the wood used has been responsibly sourced.
