NuLabel’s commercially-available activatable solutions are built on its fluid-activated platform. NuLabel’s fluid activated adhesive is pre-applied to label papers and completely dry to the touch. The dry coating is then activated by a water-based, glue-free spray that is applied using precision hardware built by NuLabel’s global OEM partners.
Zero-Waste, Lower Cost.
Zero-Waste, Lower Cost.
Utilizing a dry-to-the-touch activatable adhesive, Catalyst™ creates brand cost savings and efficiency gains, all while offering a zero-waste-to-landfill solution with no thermal transfer ribbon, no release liner, and less downtime by doubling the amount of labels per roll.
Half the Downtime
Lower per Label Cost
1. With no liner to feed onto the waste roll, a linerfree label roll is easier to load than standard PS rolls while adding over twice the number of labels per roll. Once fed to the printhead the applicator is ready to run.
2. Once the roll is loaded, the NuLabel media is activated by a water-based activation fluid as the label is being fed onto the tamp pad. The label is then cut to length and applied with a tamp blow application.
3. NuLabel's activatable adhesives solution eliminates liner waste. This allows for a lower per label cost, while doubling the amount of labels on one roll compared to pressure sensitive.

Until now brand owners have been forced to choose between two prime labeling methods: messy cold glue and costly pressure sensitive labels. NuLabel offers the best of both worlds, with the most cost effective labeling option. NuLabel’s fluid-activatable adhesive technology replaces messy glue and costly pressure sensitive adhesives, and is activated by fluid delivery and material handling hardware available as a retrofit to existing cold glue labelers or as part of a new rotary labeler.
Here is how NuLabel’s activation hardware works: Utilizing proprietary vacuum pallet technology, NuLabel media is transported from a stack of labels onto a gripper cylinder. On the gripper cylinder, the NuLabel adhesive is activated by a water-based, glue-free spray, and once sprayed the label is activated and ready to be applied to the container. NuLabel’s prime label solution has been validated by OEM partners at high speeds and is optimized for permanent adhesion to glass containers.
