New Matt White Destructible Film

BM681 is a new matt white topcoated ultra destructible film designed to protect against product tampering, warranty fraud and asset theft. It has a unique balance of high tensile strength with low internal strength – making it easy to convert on press but incredibly hard to remove once applied.

Hard to remove, easy to print and zero breaks in waste matrix


Key Features

  • 50% higher tensile strength compared to conventional destructible vinyl
  • Fast conversion speed and reliable waste removal on press
  • Low internal strength when applied
  • Non-PVC
  • Cost effective for a wide range of applications
  • Superior topcoating for conventional and thermal transfer printing

Once applied, the film is extremely difficult to peel off and upon attempted removal the material fractures easily causing irreversible damage. Typical applications include asset labels, security seals, product warranty labels and pharmaceutical box seal labels.

Highlight on Sustainability

Have you heard about Rock Paper, the marble based material offering a radically different approach to sustainable material sourcing?

Available with both a peelable (BM579) and permanent (BM572) adhesive, this new material is made from calcium carbonate derived from marble mining waste (80%), together with up to 20% recycled high density polyethylene (mainly recycled plastic bottles).

Product Withdrawal

Effective from 31/12/18 – due to a component no longer being REACH compliant the S660 adhesive will no longer be available.

As part of Avery Dennison’s continuous ongoing product development,  they have decided to replace the products using the S660 adhesive with suitable alternatives.

S660 adhesive contains the following substance in a concentration above 0.1%:

4-Nonylphenol, branched and linear, ethoxylated and is therefore not REACH compliant.

No more of this adhesive is made so we only have left what we have in Stock.
