Core Linerless Solutions®
Revolution of the label industry


A new system developed by Ritrama in collaboration with labelling equipment supplier ILTI, aiming to revolutionize the use of linerless technology.

Core Linerless Solutions® is a giant step towards the most flexible and innovative labelling system. It is the real first working, competitive, efficient, environmentally sound and turnkey Linerless system.

AN ADVANCED PROCESS

In the Core Linerless Solutions® system, a Ritrama PSA film - consisting of a thin PP film on a siliconized filmic liner - is first printed by the converter on a traditional press, without die cutting, at its maximum speed. This printed web is subsequently taken to the purpose-built finishing line, to transform the self-adhesive Ritrama CORE materials into a single ply linerless one. In the new dedicated CLS® RG20, under close tension control, the web is opened, then the liner turned over and laminated onto an activated adhesive, pre-applied by Ritrama to the back of the original liner, with the silicone layer now on the outside. The initial siliconized liner is now an integral part of the label, encapsulating and protecting the printed surface without the need for over-varnishing. The encapsulated label is die cut and microperforated on the same finishing line to finally produce single reels of linerless labels ready to be dispensed by the end user on the dedicated high efficiency Linerless dispensing head Proper-LL1 supplied by ILTI

WHY CORE LINERLESS?

Core Linerless Solutions® allows converters to increase the efficiency of the press set-up and printing process, so to achieve considerable material cost and time savings.

• The traditional supply chain remains unchanged;
No change in the use of current printing machines and inks available in the market;
No inline die-cutting required, so the press can be run roll-to-roll at full speed;
No need to overvarnish or overlaminate (=saving), since the print is encapsulated;
Double the number of labels produced on a roll compared to a standard PSA;
No matrix waste.
• Much improved efficiency, at least 50% less press time.
