October 27, 2008
MANCHESTER, PA - Novapak Corporation has added a new heat transfer labeling line at its bottle blow molding facility here, it was announced by Kenneth Stufko, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

"The new line incorporates the latest in thermal transfer technology," says Stufko, "producing highly durable labels of extreme clarity, permanence and depth of color."
The labels are reverse printed on a waxy substrate on rotogravure printing presses in up to nine colors. They are then heated and fed through an applicator head where they are fused to pre-heated bottles using pressure.
