2/7/2017 - ECL Application - The Perfect Raw Materials

After extensive developmental efforts, The Challenge Printing Company has identified an ideal combination of raw materials to be used while imprinting on a DataLase coated “patch” on Extended Content Labels (ECLs). By utilizing this customizable combination of inks, varnishes and overlaminates, we enable pharmaceutical manufacturers to achieve a better quality ECL for their products. This process allows for:

- high quality imaging of human readable information
- excellent scanability of 2D codes
- increased packaging line/laser marking speeds

This development is one of our latest additions to our ECL-related innovations. As opposed to simply manufacturing an ECL similar to other solutions in the marketplace, we came up with an innovative design from the ground up. In working with several pharmaceutical package engineers, we discovered there was a demand for a solution that addressed both the need for additional real-estate as well as a thinner construction. The result of this process is our PatientDirect® ECL design, which ensures both a higher number of labels per roll and absolute consistency between the graphics of the base label and the extended content booklet. This design is the solution needed to optimize packaging lines and create a more streamlined process. Our PatientDirect® ECL solution is yet another illustration of our commitment to bring Best Total Value to pharmaceutical manufacturers around the world.
