Linerless Trail line-up announced for Labelexpo Europe

Exhibitors participating in the Linerless Trail have been announced as the popular feature area makes its return to Labelexpo Europe 2017’s show floor. Established to help increase sustainability levels within the industry and accelerate zero waste adoption, the Linerless Trail will benefit printers looking to improve their green credentials.
Originally debuting at Labelexpo Americas 2016, the Linerless Trail brings together Evonik, Henkel, Maan, Mitsubishi HiTec Paper Europe, Ritrama and Transfer Trade. From materials through to processing, the Linerless Trail will have a particular focus on in-house production and new materials as it aims to introduce and showcase the benefits linerless technology can offer print houses.

Linerless labels incorporate both adhesive and a release coating, eliminating the need for a separate release liner. Displaying both materials and converting systems, the Linerless Trail participants will be organizing live demonstrations on their stands as well as handing out samples.

Jade Grace, Labelexpo Europe’s project director explains: “There is a lot of talk about linerless and as interest continues to grow in this area, we are seeing it being more widely used, particularly in food manufacturing. There are multiple benefits to going linerless and printers who are looking to become more eco-friendly should consider a switch, because it helps eliminate waste, bring down the overhead costs of producing labels and yield greater efficiency in the printing and application stages.”

Labelexpo Europe will be held at Brussels Expo and runs 25-28 September 2017. An early bird discount rate is available now until 15 September with show entry costing from €55.
