The latest commitment is MAXDLF™, the world’s first dispersible linerfree direct thermal label.


MAX International’s revolutionary MAXDLF™ water-soluble dispersible linerfree label is cellulose based, made of finely ground tree pulp. MAXDLF™ is non-toxic, biodegradable and 100% recyclable. MAXDLF™ will dissolve in any temperature of water, leaving no residue or paper pulp behind. MAXDLF™ is 100% dispersible in water in 30 seconds or less.

“As we are proudly part of the Solar Impulse Foundation’s World Alliance for Efficient Solutions and in following our Transform 2025 initiative, MAX International is very excited about MAXDLF™. MAXDLF™ transcends current labeling options: with MAXStick® we eliminated the liner from landfills, now with MAXDLF™ we eliminate the label as well. We will continue to release new products under the Transform 2025 initiative in the coming months. These new products will reflect our values as we work with suppliers and customers to provide environmentally sustainable liner-free label products.” said MAX International President Mike Vigunas.
