Q Why is static an important consideration for the labelling industry?
Fundamentally, static is a phenomenon that the labelling industry needs to take notice of because when it is present on a labelling line static attracts dirt and dust, which can result in poor print quality, and necessitates frequent cleaning of the labelling press. It can also potentially generate harmful operator shocks. This is particularly apparent with today’s more common filmic materials, as they tend to generate higher static charges. End users are demanding more sophisticated standards in the goods they purchase than they may have done a number of years ago, and these filmic materials are being used more commonly as they are pleasing on the eye.
