Thermoforming IML means that the decoration of the product takes place during the thermoforming process.


Product Profile

Thermoforming is a technique used for the production of plastic packaging. The process is based on the heating of a thermoplastic sheet, allowing the plastic to take the shape of a mould. When the plastic cools down it solidifies into the shape of the mould.

The IML label is fused with the heated plastic sheet while forming the finished packaging part. The end result is a decorated packaging part, produced in one step.
