Flexlink Now Distributes FiberMark Tag and Label Products

CLEVELAND, OH--Flexlink LLC recently agreed to distribute FiberMark North America’s durable tag and label product line. The agreement widens Flexlink’s product offering in the specialty paper, film and lamination market while increasing FiberMark’s market penetration.

Produced by FiberMark, PermafiberTM is a water resistant, bleedfast paper that comes in 10 colors. It is used in laundry tags, lockout tagout tags, lumber tags, Christmas tree tags, wildlife registration cards, and other applications where a tag or ticket is required to be waterproof and biodegradable.“Given the market’s interest in moving away from polymer based substrates, we believe there is pent up need for a fiber based, attractive, printable, high tear kraft paper that can hold up in the most extreme environments yet still break down over time,” said Larry Reeve, Flexlink’s new business development manager. 

Also covered by the agreement are Care labels, which can be sewn into garments, bedding and other textiles; plus papers designed for clean room tags and a wide range of decorative products designed for hang tags, cards and other narrow web printing applications.
