Fairfield, New JerseyOctober 5, 2009

Unifoil Corporation (www.unifoil.com), a leading manufacturer of inspired substrates that help end users differentiate products on the retail shelf, introduces at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2009 shimmering silver, gold, and holographic Ultralustre® for IML and IMD applications. Consumer product goods companies using in-mold labels and injection molded and blow-molded packaging can now create dynamic designs that capture attention and help grow business. In addition, environment-friendly, non-laminated film-free, foil-free Ultralustre is compatible with recyclable and regrindable IML and IMD applications. Also featured at Pack Expo is Unifoil’s environment-friendly metallized Unilustre® for papers and boards. Non-laminated film-free, foil-free Unilustre is recyclable and repulpable and can be made from post-consumer waste. Unifoil Corporation is SFI® and FSC-certified. Other inspired substrates that support sustainability and drive business are also on display in the Unifoil Corporation booth S-5158.

“Pack Expo attendees are discovering the most exciting new label and packaging innovation,” states Joseph Funicelli, CEO and President of Unifoil Corporation. “Shimmering sustainable Ultralustre for IML and IMD and packaging is inspiring end users who want a cutting-edge environment-friendly marketing tool.”

Ultralustre is also suited for cups, tubes, food packaging, signage and displays. Unilustre papers and boards are ideal for cosmetic, personal care, beverage, confection, and retail goods packaging, P-O-P and other printing applications.

Ultralustre and Unilustre are non-lamination cold manufacturing processes that transfer metallize substrates. Recyclable Ultralustre plastics and synthetics and recyclable Unilustre papers and boards, which are film-free, foil-free and made without solvents, satisfy consumer-product-goods companies’ sustainability initiatives. Ultralustre and Unilustre materials contribute to source reduction, use less energy and fewer materials compared with alternative products, are less expensive to ship, and can significantly reduce a company’s carbon footprint. Both are available in silver and gold metallic and holographics.
