Our metalized labels for one-way or returnable beer bottles give a premium look with a remarkable shine and impeccable finish. Ahlstrom Metalkote™ base paper for metalizing offers excellent performance at every step to meet the demanding needs of metallizers, printers and brewers.
For over 20 years, Ahlstrom has worked closely with metalizers, printers and brewers to gain in-depth understanding of their needs. The result? Premium labels that really stand out on the shelves.
Once metalized, a reliable base paper for labels must perform at every step of the value chain. Metalkote™ base papers offer the best balance of technical features to ensure maximum efficiency during printing, die-cutting, labelling, and – for returnable bottles – during the wash-off process, too.
