  • Fasson Curvy™ labels combine with the Curve Appeal™ application system to label  complex curved surfaces delivering improved graphics, and enhanced shelf appeal and  branding impact.
  • Wash-Off label that cleanly curls and releases with no adhesive residue from a glass bottle in a warm caustic bath providing brands with the ability to meet aggressive recycling targets.
  • MultiCycle™ labels which allow for more than 30 cycles through the glass returnable system to deliver the impact of pressure-sensitive graphics at a lower cost and environmental impact.
