Water soluble labels help to save environment and time

Water soluble labels are an ideal solution for short-term labelling of reusable containers with a clean and easy removal. It takes between 30 seconds to a minute for the label to completely dissolve once it is immersed in water. In case there are no conditions for immersion, the label can be removed with a wet cloth.
This technology is environmentally friendly and toxic free. It also does not require any special equipment and accepts water and oils based inks.

Water soluble labels are suitable to be used in various industries at different stages of the production process. They can be easily applied to surfaces such as glass, plastic, stainless steel, wood and any other surfaces used in hospitality industry. The label material has an expected shelf life of 12 months and can work in environments from -40° to 176°F. Once the label dissolves in water, anything printed or written on it vanishes too.
