Clear labels: adhesive applications

Bostik clear label adhesive solutions are innovative for many reasons, most notably the sleek aesthetic they achieve. 

Our specially developed and patented ‘clear-on-clear’ technology works to provide the smoothest conversion process possible for your roll machining. As well as actively preventing haloing, curling, or bleeding of your transparent films, our adhesives allow your converters to function sufficiently without the use of primer coated substrates.  

In addition, Bostik clear label adhesives bond well to plastic and glass bottles, and come in wash-off formulations. This provides perfect bottle labelling for businesses looking to expand their recyclable range of products and containers, whether you’re selling beers or body-scrubs.  

Not only are our clear labels aesthetically appealing and easy to apply, they’re also durable. Excessive moisture and rough handling are no threat to our range of clear label products, which offer exceptionally high tack and adhesion performance. 

As well as boasting excellent die-cut properties and low release value, our clear label adhesives can give you a removable label that maintains a flawlessly clean peel for up to 24 hours after application.
