The Felix Schoeller Group is expanding its Facestock product portfolio. With PrimePaper F005 and F026, the company is launching two new product types for direct contact with food that are free of harmful substances and FSC certified. The speciality paper manufacturer with headquarters in Osnabrück has also produced a free report on the subject of inkjet printing. Interested parties can find valuable information on the growth trend in digital label printing and the interaction between ink and paper.

"We are delighted to introduce two new label solutions for food use to our customers," says Senta Becker, Global Product Manager Label Printing at the Felix Schoeller Group about the new Facestock products PrimePaper F005 and PrimePaper F026. "Both products are free of harmful substances and FSC-certified," Mrs Becker continues on the expansion of the product range of the Osnabrück-based speciality paper manufacturer, which offers Facestock materials for a wide range of applications, including labels for bottle labelling or packaging from the health & personal care and cosmetics sectors.

In addition to its food suitability, the new PrimePaper F005 is also compostable according to DIN EN13432 and therefore harmless for direct contact with food. It can be printed in gravure and flexo and is available in 60 and 80 grams.

PrimePaper F026 is available in the same grammages. The new inkjet printable Facestock product complements the broad portfolio of coated papers that the Felix Schoeller Group has developed specifically for inkjet printing. PrimePaper F026 is proving to be extremely suitable for individualized labels with smaller batch sizes.

A complete overview of all label printing papers and applications as well as customized solutions can be found on the Felix Schoeller Group website.

Free report on label inkjet printing

Inkjet printing is one of the strongest growth trends in digital label printing. The Felix Schoeller Group has produced a compact report on this, which it is making available to interested parties free of charge. "The topic of inkjet enjoys a high level of interest in the industry. We were therefore keen to prepare market figures in collaboration with Smithers as well as information on the ideal interaction between paper and ink for users," says Ina Hilker, Director Market Intelligence.

The report can be downloaded free of charge from the Felix Schoeller website: Digital inkjet label printing: paper & inks

"We are pleased if we create added value for users with the report and are happy to provide further information in personal discussions," concludes Stephan Bramscher, VP Sales Label Printing.
