Is Stone Paper suitable for IML (In-Mould Labelling)? Would it print by normal offset or does it need special printing method and special ink?
Technically for IML (In-mold labeling) on stone paper products, our roll of SP50 micron would be most suitable. Many converters don't disclose their techniques for some of the applications, but we had great success with some of the tests we carried out with yogurt containers. The test showed our paper's great performance when fused onto the container. No special ink is required as a stone paper is a very fast drying paper. As with any paper, we also have easy to follow instructions for printing which is normally provided to printers and converters for efficient and seamless service.
