AM Labels Limited Introduces New Range of Sustainable Labelling Materials

AM Labels Limited (AM Labels), an award-winning supplier of complete labelling solutions including manufacturing and warehouse automation, barcoding and RFID systems, has introduced a brand new range of sustainable labelling materials. The expanded offering comes in response to increasing demand for environmentally friendly labelling solutions.

According to research, 64 per cent of consumers in the UK are more likely to buy from brands or retailers that use sustainable packaging*, while 50 per cent are willing to pay more for packaging that is sustainable*. Consequently, as consumer demand for sustainable products rises, businesses are increasingly looking for solutions that meet the growing requirements for packaging that does not harm the environment. To meet this demand, AM Labels has added two new materials to its portfolio; sugar cane paper labels and grass paper labels.

The new sugar cane paper labels are composed of 95 per cent sugar cane fibres, offering an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wood-pulp papers. The remaining five per cent is made of a mixture of hemp and linen. The sugar cane fibres within the material are a by-product of the production of sugar and would therefore traditionally be disposed of.

Along with being biodegradable, the permanent, acrylic based adhesive is also compostable and certified to EN13432, which is the European standard for industrial compostability. In addition, the material is a white, uncoated matt paper, offering wet strength and fungicidal treatments. It is suitable for applications that require the complete packaging to be biodegradable, such as fruit and vegetable labelling, while its thick and textured appearance make it ideal for wine, beverage and food labelling.

AM Labels’ new range of sustainable materials also includes grass paper labels, which are composed of 30 per cent sun-dried grass fibre (hay) and 70 per cent sustainably sourced pulp. The adhesive has been specially formulated to include a high content of renewable, non-fossil derived materials, making it biodegradable and compostable, as well as certified to EN13432 standards. The allergen-free, vegan-friendly material benefits from a natural, attractive finish, and is perfect for artisan food and drink labelling, in addition to cosmetics and organic products.

The sugar cane and grass paper labels available from AM Labels offer excellent sustainable benefits for businesses that are looking to communicate their responsible approach to protecting the environment, while offering good printability. Both materials are also suitable for direct contact with food, useful for fruit and vegetable labelling.

AM Labels’ new range of sustainable labelling materials is designed for use with the four colour OKI Pro1040 and the five colour OKI Pro1050 printers. The toner based Pro1040 and Pro1050 offer durable and waterproof print results, in addition to excellent UV resistance and good resistance to scuffing. Combining vibrant, professional and high quality print results with a 1200dpi resolution, both printers can easily handle short-run label demands across a range of media types.

Brendon Bass, Sales and Marketing Manager, AM Labels Limited comments: “At AM Labels, we work hard to continually develop and expand our portfolio to ensure that we are always offering our customers the latest and most innovative products available on the market. Our new range of sustainable labelling materials is a key development and one that will support our customers in making their operations more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

“Our knowledgeable and experienced team is on hand to provide advice and support on our new sugar cane paper and grass paper labels, and we also offer demonstrations at our Northamptonshire based office for businesses that want to experience and trial the new sustainable range in person.”
