STA 8130 Laminates: Versatile Lamination for Printed Labels
Size: 8.25" x 2500 feet, 3" core, linerless, Easy Release Glossy Clear BOPP
STA, LLC manufactures several classes of overlaminates which are used to laminate printed labels: polypropylene laminates, thermal transfer printable laminates, and silicone release coated laminates. STA 8130 Laminates fall into the silicone release coated laminates category. STA 8130 Laminates are made from polypropylene (BOPP) film and feature both a clear acrylic adhesive layer and a silicone easy release coating. The clear BOPP film protects the underlying label while the adhesive adheres it. The silicone coating provides the easy release features commonly required for labels with extended information flaps, piggyback labels, and removable coupons.

About STA 8130 Laminates
STA 8130 laminates do not have a liner, which reduces your costs and minimizes waste. The polypropylene layer is about 1.20 mils thick. When combined with the clear adhesive layer, the film is 2.0 mils thick. STA 8130 Laminates are also compliant with the FDA's regulations concerning labels and adhesives that come in contact with food products (FDA 21 CFR 175.105 and 21 CFR 177.1520). Since STA 8130 Laminates have a silicone easy release coating, the coating helps to quiet the production environment as the labels are laminated.
