Ritrama SpA, the Italian manufacturer of self-adhesive materials with 23 production facilities worldwide, will exhibit its product range at the next Labelexpo Americas 2016 trade show, to be held in Chicago from September 13-15, in Hall A, Booth 530.
The company will present many new product solutions in response to constantly evolving market requirements. ‘Innovation’ and ‘Research’ are at the heart of the company’s enduring success in creating new self-adhesive materials, it says, which has led to the opening of new production facilities and slitting and distribution centres in Central and South America – Ritrama Caribe and Ritrama Perù.
The new ‘Wine & Spirits’ series consists of a range of wine and spirit labels with new finishes and materials – all strictly FSC certified – and these include barrier versions dedicated to sparkling and fine wines. The new generation of AP1300 acrylic water resistant adhesives and new face materials meet the market’s high quality requirements in performance and appearance for premium wine label materials, confirming the Group’s commitment to offer state-of-the-art solutions to satisfy diversified demand.
Coextruded films are the latest innovation in the label industry supplying materials for personal and home-care packaging products. The Ritrama GLOBALFLEX series – available in white, transparent and silver finishes – combines application flexibility with production stability.
Ritrama’s R&D department also developed the Core Linerless Solutions, which offer sustainability benefits to a new generation product. A special finishing machine transforms the standard PSA material into a laminated film without liner ready to be applied by means of a special linerless dispensing head.
The company offers several labelling products to the food industry, which are in compliance with European Union laws regulating food safety. Ritrama’s Food range consists of a comprehensive series of certified self-adhesives including a coated paper, two polypropylene and two polyethylene films with a special TCF top coating.
A special focus will be on the ink-jet printable materials. The Ritrama Group provides a complete range of specialist products designed for achieving high quality prints on HP Indigo, Xeikon, Epson and EFI printers as well as Memjet, Primera and water-based Ink-Jet printers to obtain photo quality printings.
Ritrama’s wide range of products are the result of its mission statement to find the most suitable self-adhesive material for each customer and each application, and is a direct reflection of the company’s motto ‘We are listening’.
