Advanced printing process: In-Mold Labeling

In-mold labeling is an advanced printing process, also known as in-mold label printing. It is to print the label on the inner surface of the plastic bucket so that the title and the product’s surface are tightly combined, invisible labeling traces, and at the same time can protect the brand from the external environment and the influence of chemical substances.

Working Principle:

The in-mold labeling process begins with a tight label fit to the plastic bucket’s inner surface. A hot pressing process at high temperatures and pressures usually achieves this. During the heating process, the graphics and text on the label are melted and fused to the surface of the plastic bucket, forming a strong printed layer. This process allows the title to be tightly bonded to the wall of the plastic bucket, making it less likely to peel off or be damaged.



The In-mold labeling process is more cost-effective than the traditional surface labeling process. Because it does not require additional glue or adhesive, it saves costs and reduces environmental pollution. At the same time, the labels produced by the in-mold labeling process are more durable and less susceptible to damage and fading, lowering the cost of label replacement and maintenance.

Durability and longevity:

Because the label is applied to the inner surface of the plastic bucket, it is less affected by the external environment and chemicals, thus providing more extended durability and longevity. Labels are less susceptible to damage from water, oil, scratches, and other factors, maintaining long-term beauty and clarity and making the brand image more durable.

Brand image:

The in-mold labeling process can produce beautiful patterns and color effects that enhance the product’s visual impact and increase the brand’s attractiveness. Through customized design, the labels on plastic drums can be made to match the product’s image and the brand concept, enhancing brand recognition and image.


The in-mold labeling process suits all plastic buckets, including round, square, and oval buckets of different shapes and sizes. It is widely used in various industries, such as food, chemical, cleaning products, etc., providing personalized packaging solutions for products.


Overall, the in-mold labeling process provides a high-quality packaging solution for plastic buckets, making the product more competitive and attractive. It protects the label from damage and improves the image and value of the product, bringing more business opportunities and chances for success.
