What Are In-Mold Labels?



In-mold labeling (IML) is a labeling method in which a pre-printed film is applied to a mold before the plastic container. Plastic pellets or resin are then heated and placed into the mold where it merges with the label to create a final, single product.
Finding the right labeling solution for your product is more than ensuring your packaging will look attractive. Instead, it means investing in labels that bring you versatility, durability, reusability and consumer health and safety so you can take your brand to the next level — like in-mold labeling. 
If you are searching for in-mold label suppliers to help you achieve these benefits and more, MCC Label offers premium labeling. We offer in-mold labels for injection molding, blow molding and thermoforming. This labeling solution provides superior graphic reproduction and is 100% recyclable.
Moreover, our customers consistently find that in-mold labeling is a cost-effective solution for decorating plastic containers. Since an in-mold label takes the shape of the product container, it removes the need for post-mold labeling. It also eliminates costly bottlenecks in production, minimizes post-molding labeling and decorating costs and requires less manufacturing floor space.
In-mold labels work well in either injection mold, blow mold or thermoforming applications, providing the ultimate ‘no-label’ look even on unique container shapes. These labels also offer superior graphic reproduction, with a high degree of product security because of the lack of delamination. This is made possible because the labeling and graphics are encapsulated in the finished molded plastic part. 
Lastly, in-mold film labels are 100% regrindable and recyclable, which is increasingly important considering today's level of environmental awareness. They also allow for quick design changeovers.
