The IMDA Awards is one of the packaging industry’s most recognized competitions for in-mold labeled (IML) packaging and in-mold decorated (IMD) durable products. The In-Mold Decorating Association (IMDA) recently announced the winners of the 2019 competition.

Best Part Design

Ella is “convenience in a capsule” delivering a premium liquid espresso and low-fat milk, in an instant. Simply shake and add boiling hot water or cold water over ice. No machine required.

The IML oxygen barrier labels prevent oxygen from entering the packaging, thus extending the shelf life and the aroma of the cappuccino.


Best Label Design

Hygiene and freshness are keys, as the SuperLock pot from RPC Superfos, in combination with Korsini-SAF’s autoclave resistant oxygen barrier labels, which allow for post filling sterilization up to 120°C for 80 minutes.

The pot and the lid are injection molded, and the pot comes with IML and oxygen barrier protection. The lid is decorated with a standard IML, and the pot is sealed with aluminium foil for a long shelf life even under ambient temperatures.



Best IMD Package

Polytainers’ new dual compartment Sidekick container offers efficiency on shelf while delivering tangible sustainability results. The Sidekick is designed with thinner walls reducing the amount of plastic used during the manufacturing process.

Both the container and IML label are made with polypropylene resin, resulting in a 100% recyclable package so the consumer does not need to separate materials before recycling. The Sidekick increases shelf density by 36% and is available in white, pigmented or clear with a full wrap IML label.

Best IMD Durable Part

Taylor Communications partnered with Heritage Manufacturing to extend and diversify Heritage’s pistol product line.

Taylor’s development of flexographic 3D formable inks and custom 5-axis trim cell enable high-quality, custom graphics like wood grain, metallic, pearlescent and other effects to be applied to the IMD process.

Best Technical Achievement

UNITED CAPS partnered with Morphotonix, a high-tech brand protection company, to secure bottled products’ originality with a bio-inspired and sustainable closure design.

Morphotonix’s nano-engraved steel cavities with 130,000 dpi precision custom diffractive holograms were replicated by UNITED CAPS into the closures via injection molding.

The cavities are seamlessly integrated in the molding line, and the closures are produced at standard speeds.
