Benefits of YUPO IML
YUPO IML grades offer many advantages. They offer a lower per-unit label cost than post-mold alternatives, and higher packaging line speeds and efficiency. With YUPO IML there are no post-mold labeling stations, maintenance or manpower requirements.
These grades provide the opportunity for brand differentiation as well as flexibility for package design. A YUPO IML substrate will integrate with a bottle for a no-label look and feel, and will resist moisture, chemicals and scratching. It also offers superior resistance to scoffing, gouging and blistering, and superior graphics on both large and small bottles.
With YUPO IML there is no peeling, flagging or curling associated with post-mold labels and the consumer cannot remove the label, meeting many safety regulations. It is a superior packaging option for filled squeeze bottles as it is pre-optimized and requires no adhesive coating.

They enable companies to achieve less waste at all levels of the supply chain, as well as bottle resin savings.
