QuickLabel Lustro-Lam laminating solution for inket-printed labels

Thursday, 05 December, 2013 | Supplied by: Metromatics Pty Ltd



QuickLabel’s Lustro-Lam is a clear thermal transfer ribbon that mates with the surface of a label and does not require a laminator or die cutter. It can be digitally applied via thermal printing processes, as a full bleed or spot application, and enhances the gloss of the label and provides extra resistance against various abrasions, chemicals and water.

The ribbon is suitable for use with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer to produce water- and chemical-resistant labels with a glossy finish. The company claims Lustro-Lam has been tested and shown to be more chemically resistant to water, alcohol, essential oils, hydraulic fluid and cleaning chemicals than unlaminated polypropylene printed labels.

The lamination provided by the film protects labels and enhances gloss. It is not suitable for matte stocks. The gloss level of the product is rated almost three times higher than non-laminated gloss paper labels printed by an inkjet label printer.

The solution is compact and user-friendly. When used with a QuickLabel Pronto! printing system, the Lustro-Lam solution becomes a standalone laminating station.

Users can download the print file to the onboard memory of the system and apply laminate as desired. Users can choose to add lamination to a spot area or cover an entire label.

Both NiceLabel software and Custom QuickLabel software, which is included with the Kiaro! inkjet label printer, can drive the Pronto! system and be used to apply the laminate to the surface of a printed label.
