Topcoats for film labels

Adding a topcoat to film labels is one more powerful way to increase durability and printability while also adding shelf appeal and communicating a brand’s signature look and feel. But a topcoat shouldn’t slow printing speeds or divert time and resources from a converter’s other operations. For many years, our TC7007 topcoat has set the industry standard, providing standout packaging decoration while enabling efficient production. Now we’re proud to introduce a new topcoat based on TC7007: Avery Dennison Matt Topcoat, a high-performance topcoat that, like its predecessor, delivers a premium look along with excellent print results.

Avery Dennison TC7007
Get a premium look with outstanding ink adhesion by applying our popular, food-approved TC7007 topcoat for both rigid and conformable films. Our unique technology enables an especially strong bond between the film and UV-curable inks; the stronger bond enables thicker ink layers, with greater scratch resistance, along with converting speeds up to four times faster than alternative topcoats. Superior ink adhesion also means clearer, bolder graphics and increased shelf appeal. Avery Dennison TC7007 works beautifully with a wide range of printing techniques, including UV Flexo, UV inkjet, offset, thermal transfer, laser, screen, and others.

Avery Dennison Matt Topcoat 
Our new Matt Topcoat is based on our proven TC7007 topcoat and delivers the same level of ink anchorage and high print speeds, while also providing the softer, more “natural,” and more sophisticated look of a matt finish. Our Matt Topcoat converts up to four times faster than our non-topcoated Matt PP60 film and eliminates the need for a matt overvarnish. Like TC7007,  our Matt Topcoat complies with Regulation (EC) Number 1935/2004. It is also an excellent choice for labels in the cosmetics, home and personal care segments, offering excellent barcode readability in addition to clear, bold graphics. Avery Dennison Matt Topcoat is available on both polypropylene and polyethylene films.
