Avery Dennison Unveils New North American Collection of Price-Neutral
FSC®-Certified Label Constructions
MENTOR, Ohio -- March 4, 2013
Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials today introduced a new collection
of North American Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper label
materials. The new products’ prices are comparable with those of non-certified
alternatives to drive the use of FSC-certified materials throughout the value
The new collection of FSC-certified products contains 22 specifications
featuring three paper facestocks – Fasson^® 54# Semi-Gloss FSC, Fasson
Lightweight Dairy FSC and Fasson Estate Label^® No. 8 FSC – commonly used in
wine, spirits, dairy and food applications. The new offering is a result of
the company’s commitment to develop and offer sustainable label and packaging
solutions to converters and brand owners.
“We have heard clearly from members of our value chain about the need for
innovations that focus on improving sustainability,” said Darrell Hughes, vice
president and general manager, Materials Group North America. “As a market
leader, it’s our responsibility to produce and promote items that contribute
to the environmental health of our planet. This price-neutral collection of
select FSC-certified constructions is the next step in our effort to make our
industry more sustainable.”
Avery Dennison is one of more than 3,500 FSC chain of custody (COC)-certified
U.S. companies. FSC, whose mission is to promote environmentally sound,
socially beneficial and economically prosperous management of the world’s
forests, has earned a reputation as the most rigorous, credible forest
certification system available. FSC’s COC certification process traces the
path of products from forests through the supply chain, verifying that
FSC-certified material is identified or separated from non-certified material
throughout the supply chain.
In addition to FSC-certified products, Avery Dennison manufactures and markets
a variety of items that provide sustainable advantages, including:
*Post-Consumer Waste (PCW) Paper label portfolio – Selection of products
containing levels of PCW ranging from 10 – 100 percent.
*Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers-approved label portfolio –
Collection of pressure-sensitive solutions specifically designed to comply
with the Canadian Thermoform Recycling Initiative.
*Bottle-to-Bottle film label portfolio – Constructions that cleanly
separate from the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flake during recycling
resulting in pure flakes, the conservation of virgin PET resources and
less landfill waste.
*Fasson^® Wash-Off label portfolio – Labels which can be removed from
bottles with no adhesive residue. The labels are washed off in
conventional bottle washers, utilizing the existing infrastructure and
*MultiCycle^™– Two-layer label construction which allows a label to last
for more than 30 wash cycles, resulting in a 95 percent reduction in the
amount of label material going to landfill over the life of the bottle.
*TurnLock^™Laminating System – One-roll durable, protected graphics
labeling solution that reduces material costs by 30 percent. Currently,
protected graphics are produced with two rolls of material.
