Our bands are made from a variety of materials and are available in widths between 15 mm and 100 mm. Bands made from brown or white paper are particularly eco-friendly. Film bands are made from high-quality raw materials which guarantee recyclability. Our paper and film bands are perfect promotion, image and information carriers. They can be printed in advance with up to twelve non-migrating colors, or they can be single-color printed during banding. Bands are also extremely user-friendly and can be opened easily by hand. And bands are tough: they support up to 30 kg and can be deep-frozen, boiled, baked or microwaved.
News about our banding material
Frequently asked questions about our banding material
Bands made of paper or film are printed with up to 12 colors and varnishes in flexographic printing. Variable information such as LOT numbers, best before dates or barcodes are printed by a thermal transfer printer during banding into placeholders provided for this purpose.
Yes. But there are quality differences in the print image due to the material. You obtain the highest-quality print with our FSW banding stretch film. See also Area of application Branding with Banding and Printed banderoles.
Yes. Our material suppliers are certified to FSSC 22000, our printing shop to BRC (British Retail Consortium). Both therefore meet stringent hygiene requirements. We also only use low-migration, organoleptically neutral inks which are approved for food products.
- Paper bands are available as standard in grammages from 70 g/m2 to 90 g/m2 and in widths from 15 mm to 100 mm. Other grammages up to 250 g/m2 are also available on request. See further information under Banding paper.
- Film banding is available in thicknesses from 50 my to 210 my and in widths from 15 mm to 100 mm. See further information under Banding film.
- Paper banderoles consist of brown or white paper. See further information under Banding paper.
- Banding foils consist of PP, PLA or HDPE depending on the product. See further information under Banding film.
The load-bearing capacity and tear resistance depend on the material, its thickness and width. The best results are achieved with PEH, FTN and FTND banding films: they can carry up to 30 kg without any problems. see further information under banding film.
Yes. The active ingredient is added to a transparent overprint varnish, optionally matt or glossy, with which the bands are completely coated.
Yes, but at this stage only our TruePaper banding paper, which is available with 50% PCR content. We are in close contact with our paper suppliers and are constantly testing paper with even higher PCR content.
At the moment, we do not have any banding film with PCR content. However, our banding films are all made of high-quality mono-material and can be easily recycled. Here, too, we are in constant contact with our suppliers, are constantly testing new materials and are endeavoring to be able to offer the first banding films made of PCR material as soon as possible. The biggest challenges at present are the poor quality of films with PCR content and the poor availability of high-quality PCR material on the market.
Yes, all our banding films consist of a certain amount of post-industrial material. Our suppliers actively promote the use of PIR material to improve the eco-balance.
