About Halo-free ECO
Avery Dennison's Halo-free ECO transfer is made from a proprietary formula of water-based inks designed to deliver the softest quality label-free solution. Not only do these transfers feel good and look great, withstanding dry cleaning and home laundering to 140F / 60C, but high quality single color printing guarantees positive brand recognition and aesthetics that will not fade with wash or wear.
Halo-free ECO sets itself apart by carrying no visible adhesive shadow (Halo) around the motif, creating a crisp, clean image. The eco-friendly transfer has water based inks, no PVC and no harmful substances. The transfer is perfect for skin contact applications, due to its extremely soft and flexible hand. Halo-free ECO has excellent durability and is wash resistant - to match garment life cycle and maintain brand integrity.
Typical applications that the Halo-free ECO can be applied to include: men's and women's casual wear; children's wear; intimate apparel; sportswear (not performance fabrics); and corporate wear.

As part of this, Halo-free ECO transfers are really quite unique. The ECO piece is the all important differentiating factor, setting it apart from other halo-free transfers in the market today.
