Plastics play a very important role in the preparation, growth, harvesting, delivery and shopping of food that most people don’t really understand or grasp.
Fully recyclable polyolefin plastics are utilized every day by OEM’s to make tractors lighter and more fuel efficient, water and sprayer tanks more durable, hydroponic/aeroponic growing systems easier to manufacture, and produce totes, bakery trays, milk and beverage crates re-useable and returnable to help keep their costs down which in turn keeps our costs down.
Polyolefin plastics are also used in the shopping carts we use to hunt and gather as we make our way through the isles at our local grocery or retail store.
Industrial Designers and Engineers chose these plastics specifically for their ability to stand up against chemicals, various harsh environments and heavy impacts while lasting 10 years or more, the normal life expectancy for most of these products.
The resistant nature of LSE polyolefin plastics makes them the perfect plastic for these types of products that must endure all types of abuses. But ironically, it’s that same resistant nature that keeps labels from sticking or bonding to the surface. That means Brands names, logos, and safety/warning labels have no chance to endure once they get past the initial decorative process at the factory and are introduced into the real world.
Re-usable & returnable beverage crates, baking trays, produce crates, supply chain pallets, food service items, water tanks and more need permanent Brands names, warning labels and shipping/tracking information that can endure the constant abuse of impacts, abrasion, pressure washing, cleaning chemicals, dishwashing cycles, various UV and moisture environments including contact with fuels, oils and other chemicals. We can tell you with confidence that there is no method of labeling today that can survive this magnitude of abuse whether it’s pressure-sensitive adhesive, hot stamp foil, heat transfer or in mold label (IML), even if they’re called permanent.
