YUPO has been offering high-quality synthetic papers for more than 40 years. YUPO’s product range is deployed widely across the labelling industry – in-mould labels, face stock for self-adhesive varieties, direct thermal labels, tags, food labels, direct food contact labels, and more.

Recyclable synthetic paper

YUPO is a 100% recyclable, waterproof synthetic paper with attributes and properties that make it the perfect solution for a variety of marketing, design, packaging and labelling needs.

YUPO synthetic papers are extruded from polypropylene pellets. The various grades, weights and thicknesses of YUPO are supplied in rolls and sheets.

YUPO synthetic papers have a super-smooth surface. They print consistently and effortlessly, and hold ink with razor-sharp precision. They are durable, waterproof, tear-resistant and bright white.

In-mould labelling services

YUPO’s presence in the in-mould labelling market is world-renowned. Add YUPO to your blow-moulded packaging and you have a brand item that is scratchproof, won’t scuff, tear or flag, and eliminates the need for adhesive backing liner, which is great for the environment.

For many years extrusion blow-moulding, an in-mould labelling process, has been used in Europe, Asia and the US to decorate plastic bottles. In this process, a pre-printed and die-cut label is placed in the front and/or back of the plastic mould. The melted plastic is blown to acquire the mould form, and when it touches the IML label, it melts together in one piece.

Benefits of in-mould labelling

In-mould labelling offers many advantages, including:


Reduced overall resin weight

Integration with bottles for 100% recyclability

Increased wall strength for better shape and volume control

Reproduction of razor-sharp images

Resistance to moisture, chemicals and scratching

Superior performance during printing, cutting, stacking and blow moulding

Excellent dimensional stability – resists curl and edge welding

Grease, chemical and oil resistance makes it suitable for many product types

Opportunity to create unique containers

No defects associated with post-mould labels (i.e. flagging, curling and peeling)

Superior graphics on large and small bottles

Extremely low scrap rate during the blow-moulding process

Widest portfolio of grades


YUPO also has products for the in-mould injection process, focusing mainly on special applications in value-added products.

Synthetic paper substrates

YUPO’s full line of synthetic paper substrates includes face stocks for self-adhesive varieties, direct thermal labels, tags, food labels, direct food contact labels, and more.

When customers purchase from YUPO, they are receiving much more than just the product: they also benefit from fast service, excellent customer care, superior technical assistance, R&D capabilities and a synthetic paper that will meet the changing demands of today’s marketplace. YUPO has its eye on the future as well as the present and, whatever the individual requirement, can help its clients stay ahead of the field.
