"In-mould labels (IML) are a special type of labels used in the plastic injection molding process. These labels are inserted into the mold before the injection molding process begins. As the plastic is injected into the mold, it fuses with the label, making the label an integral part of the final plastic product.
This method provides high-quality, durable printing that is more resistant to environmental exposure, wear, and fading compared to traditional labels that are applied to the product after it is formed.IML labeling is commonly used for packaging in food products, personal care, and a wide range of consumer goods where aesthetics and durability are important. These labels allow for high-quality printing, vibrant colors, and complex graphics. They also enable full-surface labeling, offering more space for branding, product information, and attractive design."
