New-- Avery Dennison Halo-free ECO Transfers
At Material World 08, Avery Dennison's new Halo-free ECO Transfers will be on public display for the first time in the U.S. The innovative tag-free labels combine eco-friendly-, brand enhancement- and product performance advantages in a powerful new heat transfer concept. Made from a proprietary formula of water-based inks, the labels are PVC-free, contain no Azo dyes, formaldehyde, heavy metals or vinyl products, and meet Őko-tex 100 class 1, making them suitable for skin contact applications for babies.
The labels earn their Halo-free designation because they exhibit no visible adhesive shadow around text or graphics, resulting in crisp, clean images. They are recommended for use on cotton, cotton blends and some polyester blends in T-shirts, intimate apparel, casual clothing, corporate wear and children's wear. The labels withstand dry cleaning and home laundering at temperatures up to 140 F / 60C.
Halo-free ECO Transfers display type in sizes down to 3.5 points for 20 washes or 4 points for 20 - 50 washes. They are available on a recycled paper carrier in cut singles or roll format.
Digital High-definition Heat Transfers
Digital High-definition Heat Transfers offer a combination of rich color and enhanced graphics with the ability to incorporate variable data and security, all in a single tag-free solution.
Variable data such as size, security product codes and more can be produced in alpha/numerics, while bar codes are available for a variety of applications, including brand security tracking. The transfers can include photographic images, character designs and alternative color schemes. Micro printing and sequential product codes are available for track-and-trace security.
Applications include children's wear, intimate apparel, sportswear and team sports marketing apparel, fashion clothing and licensed images. Color consistency is guaranteed even for complex designs and images. The labels have 'soft
hand, meet Őko-tex 100 class 1, making them suitable for skin contact applications for babies, and resist up to 50 home launderings.
Digital High-definition Heat Transfers enable brand owners to combine brand enhancing creativity with operational practicality in their labeling, says Mark Hansinger, director, Worldwide Marketing - Heat Transfers. The labels exhibit extraordinary faithfulness to original artwork, which supports brand, while providing variable data and security for greater operations effectiveness.
The Avery Dennison Bonder Model HS70 TRR
The Model HS70 TRR roll-to-roll bonder quickly and cleanly applies Avery Dennison heat transfers to garments and fabric items.
Speed is achieved via the system's short dwell of 0.5 - 4 seconds, quick cycle time and a bottom heating option that increases throughput by reducing seal time.
A control panel displays mode, status, counters, dwell time and temperature. A registration sensor reads black, white or colored marks on either film or paper carriers.
The tabletop system is easy to use. Dwell times and temperature setting can be password protected to prevent operators from accidentally changing set parameters.
