Production and application of beverage labels

beverage labels cover wine, spirits, beer, FAB (flavored alcoholic beverage), nab (non-alcoholic beverage), bottled water and soft drinks. Self adhesive labels are increasingly used in beer, flavored alcoholic beverages, non labeled alcoholic beverages and soft drinks. Most beverage manufacturers choose a clear label design. Ultra transparent labels are usually used for transparent glass bottles or polyester (PET) bottles. In the wet bottling line environment, the use of a special glue that can maintain high definition can make the label look crystal clear. Pet backing paper ensures a smooth adhesive layer to maximize the contact clarity of the substrate when labeling

according to the final application of beverage, it is necessary to use glue and 13. Strain control rate range: 0.005 ~ 5% FS/s surface material, which can not only ensure good results in filling, transportation, refrigeration and final drinking, but also in high-temperature disinfection and ice water immersion. The special label we developed can withstand a variety of external environments


in the wine industry, although film has been more and more widely used, the focus is still on coated paper and art paper. Wet strength treatment can help the paper fiber resist the changing temperature and humidity, and avoid wrinkling or blistering during labeling or storage. When the labels are washed off in the process of bottle recycling and bottle washing, it is necessary to carry out alkali resistant treatment. The paper processed in this way, combined with a special washable glue, can keep the integrity of the label during the bottle washing process, so that the machine will not be blocked. The term wsa refers to label paper that combines these treatments

regardless of the life cycle of the bottle, disposable or recyclable, the glue selected for the wine label must have excellent viscosity in low temperature and humid environment, on the bottling line and in the storage of the bottle. It must also withstand constant cold storage and be exposed to water and ice

labels for high-quality wines and spirits often need to be carefully made. The typical practice is offset printing with up to 10 or more colors on mirror copper paper and art paper. Supplementary techniques such as embossing and bronzing will also be adopted. UV flexographic printing is also often used, for example, when printing large quantities of coated paper wine labels of standard quality
