„You eat with your eyes“ – this is true not only for food, but also for packaging and labels. But appearance is only one factor in labelling. Food labels can be applied under extremely difficult conditions. Legal requirements must be considered as well. In particular, with conventional packaging it must be ensured that the adhesive and label material do not migrate into the food.

Technical requirements:

  • High tack
  • Insensitive to moist and cold surfaces
  • Suitable for pasteurisation
  • Suitable for deep-freeze labels
  • No-label look
  • Non-contact labelling
  • Good perforation qualities
  • Oil- and grease-repellent

Legal requirements:

  • BfR and FDA certification
  • ISEGA certification for contact with foodstuffs with fatty surfaces
  • REACH conformity

The Solution

Thanks to HERMA’s new multi-layer coating technology, its adhesives fully meet the requirements in both areas. The middle layer provides much higher tack while helping to minimise migration.
