VPF Sharpens its Profile as a Niche Supplier of
Innovative Self-Adhesive 
Materials and Coatings

Labelexpo 2013

Inkjet products for brilliant colour printing, security materials and films with UL certification in the spotlight at Labelexpo

VPF GmbH & Co. KG, the self-adhesive materials and coatings manufacturer based in Sprockhövel, Germany, continues to forge ahead with developments as in recent years and at Labelexpo (24-27 September 2013) in Brussels (Hall 5, Stand A65) will be sharpening its profile as a niche supplier of high-grade, innovative products for specific potential applications. This year, the company will be spotlighting three groups of products from its portfolio: self-adhesive inkjet papers and films for absolutely brilliant colour printing results, security materials and also, as an absolute first at the trade fair, UL-certified polyester films.

With its latest generation of self-adhesive inkjet products, VPF is introducing new quality segments to the market. The company’s PP films, in particular, permit printing of a quality previously virtually impossible to achieve thanks to an entirely new coating technology that guarantees perfect ink holdout. Like a magnet, the coating attracts the ink particles and keeps them clinging tightly to the surface. The old, familiar weaknesses – such as poor ink adherence and watery-looking print – are finally a thing of the past. To begin with, customers will have five products to choose from: two papers (white matt, 100 g/m2 and white glossy, 87g/m2) and three films (data special PE 100 µ white matt, PP film, white glossy 90 µ and PP film, transparent glossy, 80 µ), all of which are available in combination with a variety of adhesives. As a liner, VPF uses the tried and tested product Glassine B700 (approx 63 g).

Competent Partner and Problem Solver

When it’s a question of originality and preventing forgery and tampering, the self-adhesive materials specialist from Sprockhövel has a variety of products to offer both for void solutions and for self-destructing labels and checkerboard films for different purposes. In view of the frequently high sensitivity of the field of application, such attributes as uncompromisingly high standards of quality, easy handling and absolute reliability enjoy top priority. In order to be able to cover the widest possible range of applications, VPF produces the polypropylene films in white, transparent, matt and glossy and in thicknesses ranging from 80 to100 μ and offers them with a wide selection of adhesives – and as a very special service, even in small quantities of as little as 500 m2.

As with all of its other products, VPF took its cue for this latest targeted extension of its portfolio from the specific needs and demands of its customers and markets. Right on time for Labelexpo, VPF will be adding four products with UL approval to its range: high-performance polyester films with a UV-cured adhesive coating. The films are
