Water Soluble Label Stock
SmartSolve pressure sensitive labels, unlike traditional labels, possess the unique added advantage of dissolving in water in an earth friendly manner. The same unique characteristics apply to SmartSolve direct thermal pressure sensitive labels, but are designed to be printed in a direct thermal printer.
This water soluble, environmentally sustainable, non-toxic material is a breakthrough technology that can dissolve instantly in water, or can biodegrade gradually depending on the amount of water or moisture exposure. Composed of sodium caboxy methyl cellulose and wood pulp, this dissolving material has a paper-like consistency that is available in a variety of thicknesses and can also be enhanced with custom coatings. The most popular coatings transform the dissolving paper into a dissolving pressure sensitive label or a dissolving pouch.
SmartSolve water soluble paper can also be printed on most web and sheet fed presses including digital, flexography, letterpress, and dry offset. It requires no special equipment and accepts water and oil based inks. When the paper vanishes in water, so does anything printed or written on it.
