 100% Dissolvable. Environmentally sustainable 

Earth-Friendly SmartSolve Label Stock

SmartSolve Label Stock

SmartSolve pressure sensitive labels, unlike traditional labels, possess the unique added advantage of dissolving in water in an earth friendly manner. The same unique characteristics apply to SmartSolve direct thermal pressure sensitive labels, but are designed to be printed in a direct thermal printer.

This water soluble, environmentally sustainable, non-toxic material is a breakthrough technology that can dissolve instantly in water, or can biodegrade gradually depending on the amount of water or moisture exposure. Composed of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose and wood pulp from FSC certified forests, this dissolving material has a paper-like consistency that is available in a variety of thicknesses and can also be enhanced with custom coatings. The most popular coatings transform the dissolving paper into a dissolving pressure sensitive label or a dissolving pouch.

SmartSolve water soluble paper can also be printed on most web and sheet fed presses including digital, flexography, letterpress, and dry offset. It requires no special equipment and accepts water and oil based inks. When the paper vanishes in water, so does anything printed or written on it.

Beginning in 2016, DayMark Technologies became SmartSolve® Industries, with expanded entry into markets seeking water soluble, paper-based packaging and materials. SmartSolve Industries is a CMC Group Company.
