SPENCER, Mass.--FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive coating and laminating, today announced the availability of two new BS5609 Compliant DRUMcal™ 3.1 mil vinyl products (DRUMcal™ 41521 and 41541). These products feature a new gloss topcoat and a choice of two permanent adhesives, and a lay-flat liner. The DRUMcal™ products utilize gloss TC-274, which provides outstanding image quality, durability, and chemical resistance. In addition, the products utilize a 74 lb. clay-coated release liner that yields excellent lay-flat properties, regardless of ambient temperatures. The products also have excellent tracking through laser printers and are easily diecuttable. The products are designed for sheet-form and roll-form laser printing and can be used on steel, plastic and fiber drums.
The combination of TC-274 and the laser printer’s polymer-based toners provides outstanding image quality, and is more durable than some of the other competing digital printing technologies in the marketplace. The topcoat also lends to these vinyls to be printable via UV and water flexo, as well as thermal transfer (monochrome and color).
FLEXcon’s extensive line of DRUMcal™ vinyl, polypropylene and polyester products is designed to meet the rigorous demands of hazardous container labeling, and complies with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) requirements for hazardous communication.
“The petroleum and chemical drum labeling industry faces unique challenges with GHS compliance requirements,” said Brian Ayers, Market Development Specialist, Product Identification Business Team, FLEXcon. “As we continue to allow our printer and converter audience to better meet GHS standards with confidence and ease, we are pleased to announce continued advancements in our DRUMcal™ products.”
