Everything that describes In-Mould Labelling (IML):
IML stands for In-Mould labelling. It is the process where the product is decorated or labelled when the object is being moulded. This a new technique which has grown the idea from the technique where a pre-printed polypropylene (PP) is fixed in the mould and this mould has the configuration of the final product, as for an example the configuration of the cheese tub. Then in the mould the molten PP is added. And finally while healing when the mould is blended with the label it takes the shape of the mould. During the production, the label is placed in the mould. Then the mould is manually closed and then the plastic resin is forcefully ejected into the mould cavity. And finally, after this process, the object or the container gets the desired configuration and designs. This process encloses the printed ink between the coated substrate and it has chemical durability and also maintains a bright multicolour graphic.
