NuLabel Technologies is developing liner-free label technology to help companies cut costs & reduce waste. Almost every time a label is printed, end-users throw away half of what they print & half of what they pay for.
The non-stick label backing - the liner - is non-recyclable, consumes valuable space on label rolls, and is the most expensive part of the label. Liners generate 3 million tons of landfill waste each year.
NuLabel’s first offering, the NuV Solution, consists of two products: liner-free NuV Labels and the NuV Add-On. NuV Labels replace labels’ traditional, always-tacky adhesive with an activateable adhesive that becomes tacky after the label exits the label printer. The NuV Add-On is a printer attachment to the front of label printers that activates the NuV Label’s polymer-adhesive as the label exits the printer, eliminating the need for the liner. NuV Labels cost about 20 percent less than linered labels, double printing capacity, reduce storage and freight costs, and eliminate waste. The NuV Add-On investment achieves breakeven within seven months.
