Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0047477A1] A labeling machine (10) and method of labeling containers (12) with a label (15) that has a glueless leading edge and is caused to wrap around a container (12) by the application of an aqueous solution that is applied to the container (12) prior to applying the label (15) to the container (12). The aqueous solution is preferably applied to the label panel portion of the container (12). The surface tension of the aqueous solution causes the label (15) to wrap around the container (12). Glue is applied to the trailing edge of portion and is confined to the portion of the label (15) forming a sleeve in situ that is not adhered by glue to the container (12). The aqueous solution is applied to the container (12) to be labeled by means of an aqueous solution supply system (28) having a roll-on pad including a sponge (66).
