FLEXcon's group of optiFLEX products now includes optiFLEX PP 260 H White TC-237 V-81 TRACrite 120. The 2.6-mil, topcoated, hard, white, cavitated polypropylene film is designed for price-sensitive labeling of semi-rigid and rigid containers for health and beauty, household, chemical, and food applications. The film is coated with a permanent, acrylic, pressure-sensitive adhesive and backed with TRACrite 120 polyester release liner. FLEXcon says the topcoat offers consistent ink adhesion and is compatible with a range of printing methods, including solvent, water, UV flexo, letterpress, UV offset, hot stamping, and UV screen printing. The V-81 adhesive reportedly offers excellent adhesion properties, tack, clarity, and wet-out characteristics to HDPE, styrene, PVC, PET, and PETG. FLEXcon says TRACrite 120 provides superior on-press performance for tight registration graphics, and the liner's strength provides a good diecutting base and allows for high-speed dispensing applications. The film is available in 76-in. (1930-mm) rolls. FLEXcon Co., Inc., 1 FLEXcon Industrial Park, Spencer, MA 01562, 508-885-8370, fax: 508-885-8399, Web:
