Choosing the right solution
Whatever your needs; we have the right solutions for your label application equirements,

There are four main component elements in a self adhesive label. The top layer, or face-stock is a paper, or filmic material e.g. Polypropylene, with an adhesive applied to the back and the top prepared for printing. These two elements form the label itself.

There are a variety of different types of adhesives available, but the majority are either a general purpose permanent acrylic, or rubber based pressure sensitive adhesive.

The bottom layer is usually a paper or filmic backing material (release liner) for carrying the label through the print process, before the label is applied to a product, or substrate.

Material Specification

The fourth element in the labels construction is a silicone release coating is added to the backing material to facilitate the removal of the label for application.

With roll labels the waste matrix is removed from around the labels.

Material Specification
Material Specification

The backing material seldom influences your label design, but the chosen backing with its silicone release coating is a factor that is important in the production and application phase.

Glassine backing materials
This backing material is typically available in transparent, white and honey for roll stock labels. The backing material is uncoated and is available in a variety of weights.

High-density glassine
High-density glassine backings have a lower deviation in thickness and a higher density. This means that they perform better when die-cutting filmic face materials, compared to regular glassine or kraft backings.

Filmic backing materials
Polyester (PET) or polypropylene (PP) backing materials are clear and specially designed for use with transparent filmic face materials in applications requiring excellent clarity. Film backing provide a smooth adhesive layer for uniform contact with the face material and have good strength characteristics for high-speed (volume) production and demanding applications.

Kraft backing materials
Kraft backings are coated on one side and are more rigid than either glassine or high-density glassine backings of the same weight. Kraft backings are used in both sheet stock (A3/SRA3) and A4 applications because they provide a suitable backing that feeds smoothly into copier, inkjet and laser printers. A kraft backing is also ideal when the application requires flat sheet conversion.

Label materials based on RP Cryo retain their adhesion on PP vials, tubes and storage boxes over long periods of time, in both vapour and liquid phase in liquid Nitrogen storage tanks. This adhesive withstands multiple freeze-thaw cycles (reconstitution can be done, for example in ice water, or a warm water bath; samples can later be returned to the liquid Nitrogen storage tank). Stiffness of the face material, die-cutting direction, storage conditions and the container diameter can influence label edge lifting.

The face-stock material (PE Laser White) and adhesive laminate achieves a score < 2 (moderate off-flavour) in a Sensory Analysis for Indirect Transition of Taste according to EN1230-2 (Robinson Test).

Applications and use

Ideal for the labelling of cryogenically stored biological information and samples in various formats. Overprinting of variable data and updating of information via conventional hand written means. Also used for labelling items where heat is generated, such as PCB’s, automotive engine parts and heating systems etc. Along with chemical drum and logistics applications. Due to the exceptional thickness and stability large label sizes can be used.

Conversion & Printing

The labels can be overprinted by colour digital offset, hot and cold laser, dot matrix, laser and thermal transfer printers.

Due to the surface properties of the face-stock the Polyethylene film is pre-printable by screen, offset, flexography, letterpress, electro-photography, electro-graph, digital offset and dot matrix. Inks for filmic substrates are recommended. Also thermal transfer with selected ribbons.

Applications and use

This label is designed with extreme tamper evidence as a priority. The heavily filled face is highly frangible, of low calliper, providing little label edge and thereby increasing the difficulty of removal, while being both conformable and semi-flexible to avoid accidental breakage after application.

The adhesive is aggressive on a wide range of flat and (assisted via film conformability) curved surfaces, both polar and a-polar. These typically include glass, steel, varnished and unvarnished carton boards, along with most plastics used in packaging and mouldings.

The specific combination of face-stock and adhesive results in a label which will usually only be removable in very small pieces, destroying it completely. At the same time the face has been specifically formulated with just enough tensile/tear strength to allow simple label shapes to be die-cut and the waste matrix stripped for subsequent automatic application where required.

The excellent durability of the combination of face-stock and adhesive facilitates its use for both indoor and outdoor applications, including identification and inspection record labels for instrument panels and equipment, warning signage, information labels on electrical appliances and tamper evident security seals.

Applications and Printing

This product is designed for both automatic and manual application. The label can be printed by all conventional roll label technologies, including water-based inks, UV letterpress and screen print. However as with all materials we recommend ordering a FOC material sample for evaluation and print testing before the placing of an order.

Approvals

This product meets the requirements as stated in UL 969 and CSA 22.2 No. 0.15 for indoor and outdoor use. The UL file number is MH27538.

Shelf Life

2 years from the date of manufacture if stored at a constant temperature of c.20° C and a RH50%. Prolonged storage at higher or lower temperatures and/or humidity levels will risk shortening the shelf life and may also affect the labels in other ways.

Applications and use

Very popular for information labelling where label durability is important and over-printing is required by laser or thermal transfer, such as “hazchem” labels where the pictograms to be used within the printed red borders are interchangeable dependent upon the container contents. Recommended for drum and logistics industry labelling.

Ideal for A4 and cut-size applications, with good removability, UV stability (non-yellowing) and water resistance once labelled. Limited adhesion on very rough surfaces and not recommended for labelling PVC substrates.

Conversion & Printing

Due to the pre-treatment, the film is printable by common label printing methods like letterpress, flexography, screen and offset as well as copier and laser toner printers, but in all cases inks designed for non-absorbent materials should be used.

Approvals

The research centre ISEGA (EN ISO 17025 accreditation for analytics and EN 45011 for certification) has given the adhesive and approval according to the European requirements for direct contact with dry and moist, non-fatty foodstuffs and according to FDA regulations adhesive may come into direct contact with dry foodstuffs, or it must be separated from the foodstuffs by a functional barrier. Furthermore the adhesive may come into contact with poultry, dry foodstuffs as well as fruit and vegetables.

The adhesive is also in compliance with the demands of the Code of Federal Regulations, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR Ch. 01 (01.04.2012) 175.105 & 175.125

This product complies with the materials section of BS5609 Part 2 (Marine Immersion), which is a recognised standard for self-adhesive labels for marine use. It contains provisions to ensure that dangerous goods transported by sea should be durably labelled and identified. This includes surviving immersion at sea.

Section 2 details the requirements for pressure-sensitive adhesive laminates and rates their performance in terms of dimensional stability, adhesion, artificial weathering, temperature cycling and colour fastness, together with exposure to marine conditions for three months.

Customers converting labels themselves should independently determine the compliance of the ink and print process involved in the production of labels to the British Standard.

Shelf Life

From the date of manufacture 2 years at 20° C and RH50%. Prolonged storage at higher temperatures and/or humidity levels will shorten the shelf in optimum condition terms.

Applications and use

This label material performs excellently on very difficult surfaces e.g. HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) drums. The product also offers good medium-life durability and is therefore ideal for tracking/warehouse applications and also product/component identification in industrial applications.

Conversion & Printing

The label has been specifically designed for sheet-fed and continuous laser printing through high speed industrial laser printers. The product displays optimal flatness during conversion, storage and the industrial laser printer processing. Some curl may be seen on exiting the printer but this will flatten quickly. The backing paper is specially suited to the more critical re-fan-folding demands of high-speed computer printers, providing optimum lay-flatness and excellent inter-folding characteristics.

The product is also suitable for overprinting with other print technologies i.e. dot matrix, thermal transfer (in combination with the correct ribbon grade and machine adjustment), ink jet (up to 720 dpi). The face-stock can also be pre-printed by conventional printing processes, such as flexographic and offset lithographic. For flexographic good results can be achieved with water or solvent-based printing inks. Consult your printing ink supplier about suitable printing inks for your application.

In view of the enormous variety of printers on the market we recommend carrying out process trials beforehand.

Approvals

The adhesive complies with the European food directives and legislation FDA 21; CFR 175, 105 and the German recommendations XIV as published by BfR (Bundesinstitut fur Risikobewertung) the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment.

Ideal for A4 and cut-size applications, with good removability, UV stability (non-yellowing) and water resistance once labelled. Limited adhesion on very rough surfaces and not recommended for labelling PVC substrates.

Approvals

The research centre ISEGA (EN ISO 17025 accreditation for analytics and EN 45011 for certification) has given the adhesive and approval according to the European requirements for direct contact with dry and moist, non-fatty foodstuffs and according to FDA regulations adhesive may come into direct contact with dry foodstuffs, or it must be separated from the foodstuffs by a functional barrier. Furthermore the adhesive may come into contact with poultry, dry foodstuffs as well as fruit and vegetables.

This product complies with the materials section of BS5609 Part 2 (Marine Immersion), which is a recognised standard for self-adhesive labels for marine use. It contains provisions to ensure that dangerous goods transported by sea should be durably labelled and identified. This includes surviving immersion at sea.

Section 2 details the requirements for pressure-sensitive adhesive laminates and rates their performance in terms of dimensional stability, adhesion, artificial weathering, temperature cycling and colour fastness, together with exposure to marine conditions for three months.

Customers converting labels themselves should independently determine the compliance of the ink and print process involved in the production of labels to the British Standard.

Shelf Life

From the date of manufacture 2 years at 20° C and RH50%. Prolonged storage at higher temperatures and/or humidity levels will shorten the shelf in optimum condition terms.

Applications and use

Very popular for information labelling where high visibility, durable labels are required making these labels ideal for tracking/warehouse applications and also for product/component identification and instructional labels in industry. Recommended for drum and logistics industry labelling.

Ideal for A4 and cut-size applications, with good removability, UV stability (non-yellowing) and water resistance once labelled. Limited adhesion on very rough surfaces and not recommended for labelling PVC substrates.

Conversion & printing

Due to the pre-treatment, the film is printable by common label printing methods like letterpress, flexography, screen and offset as well as copier and laser toner printers, but in all cases inks designed for non-absorbent materials should be used.

Approvals

The research centre ISEGA (EN ISO 17025 accreditation for analytics and EN 45011 for certification) has given the adhesive and approval according to the European requirements for direct contact with dry and moist, non-fatty foodstuffs and according to FDA regulations adhesive may come into direct contact with dry foodstuffs, or it must be separated from the foodstuffs by a functional barrier. Furthermore the adhesive may come into contact with poultry, dry foodstuffs as well as fruit and vegetables.

The adhesive is also in compliance with the demands of the Code of Federal Regulations, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR Ch. 01 (01.04.2012) 175.105 & 175.125

Label materials based on RP Cryo retain their adhesion on PP vials, tubes and storage boxes over long periods of time, in both vapour and liquid phase in liquid Nitrogen storage tanks. This adhesive withstands multiple freeze-thaw cycles (reconstitution can be done, for example in ice water, or a warm water bath; samples can later be returned to the liquid Nitrogen storage tank). Stiffness of the face material, die-cutting direction, storage conditions and the container diameter can influence label edge lifting.

The face-stock material (PE Laser White) and adhesive laminate achieves a score < 2 (moderate off-flavour) in a Sensory Analysis for Indirect Transition of Taste according to EN1230-2 (Robinson Test).

Pharmaceutical change management with 12 months notice of any change. In combination with the 2 years shelf-life from date of manufacture, provides a 3 year window for any requalification requirements.

Applications and use

This product is designed for use in retail item level applications, such as weight label material on food packaging and provides excellent grades with EAN and other barcodes. Other typical end user applications include front of store labelling, process tracking, POS and item variable information labelling.

As economy thermal papers are not equipped with a protective surface coat, the labels should not be exposed to water or greasy substances. Also the image may fade over a period of time if applied to surfaces containing plasticisers e.g. Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride.

Conversion & Printing

The face-stock offers a good quality of imprint provided that solvent-free inks and varnishes are applied. Inks should be suitable for printing thermal papers and consultation with the ink supplier is advised. Suitability tests should be performed under customer-specific conditions, as unpredictable interactions with the ink may occur, due to the lack of a protective coating. Web temperature during curing should not exceed 50° C in order to prevent premature imaging, or discolouration.

Printing speeds of up to 250mm/s are possible in direct thermal printing.

Applications and use

This product combines the characteristics of thermal papers with the durability of Polypropylene films and printing speeds of up to 200mm per second are possible in direct thermal printing.

The adhesive has a very high tack even on cold surfaces down to -10° C. Due to the high initial tack even on moist surfaces this label is particularly suited to labelling polar and non-polar surfaces, such as plastic containers, film wrappings and other packaging materials. The adhesive works well for fast running labels dispensers, in which the initial tack has to be built up extremely quickly, once the labels are blown onto the substrate.

Once labelled the adhesive is also highly waterproof.

The Polypropylene face-stock features a high resistance to water and oil. It does not contain BPA adn is suitable for applications in market segments where labels may require protection via the top-coat from grease and oils, such as fresh food “Delicatessen” counters, as food and meat labels. Also where abrasion may occur in commercial and industrial applications and durability is required e.g. logistics labels, luggage and packaging labels.

Conversion and printing

Although a direct thermal heat sensitive film, printing with traditional printing methods such as UV Flexo, or UV Offset Litho. However the inks should be suitable for printing thermal films and consulting the ink supplier is recommended. A corona treatment prior to printing may have a positive effect in ink trapping and adhesion. The web temperature during curing should not exceed 50° C in order to prevent an early reaction of the thermo reactive ink.

Approvals

The thermal film according to the sample material is physiologically and toxicologically safe when used as intended and may therefore be used in printers and scales for labelling food and goods. However it may only stand in direct contact with such kind of foodstuffs which are peeled, shelled or washed before consumption according to experience. (ISEGA Research & Development Institute, Aschaffenburg.)

All ingredients of the adhesive comply with the recommendations BfR XIV and FDA 21 & CFR 175.105 (Adhesives).

The paper release liner complies with recommendation BfRXXXVI

Shelf Life

Applications and use

Applications are predominately in market segments where rigid containers are used (e.g. glass, polyester/PET). Due to the fairly rigid nature of the film, care should be taken with application and use on non-uniform surfaces and/or where a very high level of flexibility or a squeezable function is required (e.g. soap and shower gel containers). A good choice for primary brand and product labels on rigid containers, secondary promotional labels, asset labels, informational labels, external labels/signage and safety labels/signage etc.

This adhesive is suitable for use across a broad range of “wet wipe” applications and is also suitable for many dry pack re-closure applications and can be used for promotional labels and clothing “stickers” combining excellent UV and weather resistance with good removability from most substrates e.g. glass, PET and PP.

On a few substrates (e.g. PVC, Polystyrene, PC and ABS) the adhesion tends to become stronger over the course of time and this may affect functional removability, therefore preliminary testing on such substrates is recommended.

The SC glassine is perfectly suited for assignment in labelling machines equipped with optical, or mechanical scanners.

Applications and use

This product is designed for use in retail item level applications, such as “eye catching” promotional labelling, along with many other commercial and industrial applications requiring the printing of variable data and/or information. It also provides excellent grades with EAN and other barcodes. Other typical end user applications include front of store labelling, process tracking, POS and item labelling.

As economy thermal papers are not equipped with a protective surface coat, the labels should not be exposed to water or greasy substances. Also the image may fade over a period of time if applied to surfaces containing plasticisers e.g. Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride.

Conversion & Printing

The face-stock offers a good quality of imprint provided that solvent-free inks and varnishes are applied. Inks should be suitable for printing thermal papers and consultation with the ink supplier is advised. Suitability tests should be performed under customer-specific conditions, as unpredictable interactions with the ink may occur, due to the lack of a protective coating. Web temperature during curing should not exceed 50° C in order to prevent premature imaging, or discolouration.

Printing speeds of up to 250mm/s are possible in direct thermal printing.

APPROVALS – Regulations concerning contact with food.

The thermal paper grade face-stock, is physiologically and toxicologically safe and may therefore be used in printers and scales for the marking of goods. However they can only be applied in direct contact with those groups of foodstuffs, which are washed and/or peeled, before consumption. ISEGA (Research & Development Institute, Aschaffenburg) .

The adhesive complies with the European food directives and legislation FDA 21; CFR 175, 105 and the German recommendations XIV as published by BfR (Bundesinstitut fur Risikobewertung) the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment. All of which state that the adhesive can be used in direct contact with dry, moist and non-fatty foodstuffs, however according to the FDA regulations the adhesive must be separated from the foodstuffs by a functional barrier.

The release liner complies with recommendation BfR XXXVI

Adhesive

Water based permanent, pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive, with good adhesion to wet surfaces at low temperatures. Especially designed for glass containers, with excellent resistance to immersion in water/ice. This adhesive should not be exposed to direct sunlight and/or high temperatures for long periods of time.

Additional Information

The test of resistance to immersion in water/ice is carried out by sticking a blank (unprinted) label on a standard glass bottle. Five days later the bottle with label applied is submerged in an ice bucket containing ice and water for a minimum period of 4 hours and the labels resistance to immersion is checked.

Applications and use

This high quality slightly textured face material is designed for the manufacture of labels for application onto glass containers, both bottles and jars for drinks, fragrances, oils, preserves etc. Because of the appearance it is great for engendering a “retro” and/or rustic image for the label.

This product is ideal for label applications where face stock appearance is highly important in terms of brand image and appearance.

Approvals

The adhesive complies with the European food directives and legislation FDA 21; CFR 175, 105 and the German recommendations XIV as published by BfR (Bundesinstitut fur Risikobewertung) the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment. Both of which state that the adhesive can be used in direct contact with dry, moist and non-fatty foodstuffs, however according to the FDA regulations the adhesive must be separated from the foodstuffs by a functional barrier.
