About FilmLOC
FilmLOC® manufactures and sells Intelli-Plac®, a patented silicone free placard holder for labeling and re-labeling reusable containers and totes, racks, shelves, skids, pallets, equipment, manufactured goods in process, shipping crates and other items. INTELLI-PLAC® is made from a single layer film that is manufactured without any coatings, thus making Intelli-Plac® ideally suited for environments where silicone contamination would cause serious problems, such as paint shops, clean rooms or other sensitive applications. INTELLI-PLAC® is durable even in difficult applications and can be re-used more often than other placards, thus reducing the amount of resources used. INTELLI-PLAC® contains no silicone coating or other non-recyclable chemical coatings so it can be recycled while still applied to HDPE or PP containers or after removal from other types of containers. This equates to saving resources and saving money. FilmLOC products are manufactured in the US. For more information, visit http://www.filmloc.com.
