FAQ about In-Mold Labels
How can metallized in-mold labels help printers and molders cater to growing demand?
When it comes to labelling, brands choosing the right application for their products have one primary consideration in mind, and it’s no secret: they want a label that makes their product attractive on the shelf, with looks that convey quality, value and help set them apart from the competition.

What is metallized paper?
As a kid, did you ever condense your breath on a mirror? We did. The art of metallizing is very similar.
What are the benefits of working with metallized film for IML applications?
When it comes to metallized film for IML applications, quality is a key factor, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t further, crucial features that support the fantastic end result brands desire for their labels. Our metallized film is suited to all types of ink, and it offers a surface that is ideal for interaction between the paper and ink, which gives excellent printability, high definition and text clarity.
Are AR Metallizing's in-mold labels compliant with food safety regulations?
IML is appealing today because of the high performance it offers in relation to the increasingly stringent food safety regulations. Brands can rest assured their containers are created in highly-controlled environments with minimal contact with unnecessary machines and additional processes for labelling. Our metallized labels are certified for non-direct contact with food, meaning that when used in conjunction with certain containers it is ideal for IML applications for both food and beverages. The surface of our paper offers great definition and clarity for printing, which also lends itself to ensuring that the relevant nutritional information can be clearly read as is usually required by law.
Why are in-mold labeling applications increasingly attractive for brands?
While the market share of this relatively special labeling process has remained small but stable for a number of years, it now seems set to grow with a recent report even stating that by 2020, the in-mold labeling market share will be worth up to USD 3.23 billion. This is, of course, good news for printers, converters and the molders – increased demand from brands means further possibilities to gain new clients, perform more print runs and create more in-mold containers of various kinds.
What is the difference between blow molding and injection molding?
There are different methods for the label adhesion process required for IML.
Why is a supplier of quality in-mold labels key to you?
Branching into IML can be a daunting prospect for brands, especially to those for whom chemical or technical processes are more abstract (think branding or marketing departments, as opposed to research and development teams). To many brands, they need reassurance that their partners can deliver the quality IML they require, on deadline and with minimal issues, especially if the application means moving away from trusted processes and partners that they’ve used for some time.
