Following the commissioning of a brand-new £2 million coating line in 2019, Kernow Coatings is expanding its already comprehensive range of over 2000 products to the self-adhesive labelstock market. “The concept remains the same”, says Paul Dimery, Kernow’s Group Sales Manager. “We are bringing our world renowned digitally printable films to the label market by marrying them with a wide range of adhesives, from microsphere to marine and from emulsion acrylic to solvent in conjunction with a range of release liners. We have an exceptionally wide range of face stocks from whites to clear, translucent, colours and even metallic, including matt silver, ranging in thickness from 36 microns to over 300 micron. The result will be one of the widest and highest performing ranges of digitally printable self-adhesive label stock available on the market. As well as our standard self-adhesive product range, the variety of products available is limitless because we can create our own coatings. For example, we can colour match to any Pantone colour, and mix and match adhesives and release liners. In addition to this, we can also help customers design and develop new products and concepts using our state-of-the-art pilot coater and laboratory.”

The digital print leader for self-adhesive labels, stand-up pouches and continuous film announces the appointment of Richard Wilson to the Senior Sales Team and is set to launch a new range of digital security labelling.
