We manufacture a vast array of blank labels in a variety of materials, adhesive, sizes and configurations.
To orientate ourselves when describing a label, we always refer to the size of the label in Width x Height in millimeters (mm).
This allows for a uniform system of describing and measuring labels.
In the graphic to the right we hope to familiarize you with some terms used in the industry when describing a roll of labels
Direct Thermal material is heat sensitive material, coated to also enhance the quality of the barcode. For those applications where the label will not be exposed to light for long periods of time and printing is without the use of a ribbon.
There variations available are:
Synthetic label materials are used in specialised applications where durability and longevity of the label and the information printed on it is important.
These are available in a variety of options:
3M Polyester – Matt White or Matt Silver
Thermal Transfer Polyprop (TTP)
Adhesive options are available in environments where labels are required to stick for long periods of time in demanding conditions or at the other extreme where labels need to be easily removed. There are various options:
Acrylic – Standard label adhesive
Hi Tack Hot Melt – Aggressive adhesive
Removable adhesive – Easily remove the label when required
Piggy Back – An additional layer in the label sandwich where part of the label can be removed to apply to a document or box. This type of material and adhesive combination are ideal for traceability of parcels and documents.
