Applications

Support - Label Adhesive Types

Permanent Adhesive

Standard permanent adhesive is suitable for the majority of applications that require a label to be applied and not removed. Standard permanent adhesive is suitable for non-polar surfaces, films, and corrugated board, but not recommended for labelling highly curved surfaces.

 

If you are new to labels, it can be hard to decide which type of label is right for you. Should you need any assistance with your choice, please contact us using the enquiry form to the right, or contacting us via sales@amlabels.co.uk/(01536) 414222.

 

Specialist Applications

There are varieties of permanent adhesive specially designed to fulfil specialist applications:

• Wine labelling applications where wash-off properties aren't required.

• Labelling of curved surfaces. Specially designed for labelling of small diameter pharmaceutical bottles and test tubes.

• Highly cohesive clear adhesive for filmic face material. Suitable for clear-on-clear constructions and overlaminating films. Long term available adhesive for pharmaceutical no label look applications.

• Direct food labelling applications.

• Labelling of bottles, cans, etc. that are susceptible to moist or wet surfaces. The composition of the adhesive makes it suitable for use in food packaging and pharmaceutical applications

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Removable Adhesive

Standard removable adhesive is suitable for the majority of applications that require a label to be applied and removed at a later date. Ideal for companies applying pricing labels to products that are sold as gifts and labels that are used to seal products.

 

Specialist Applications:

There are varieties of removable adhesive specially designed to fulfil specialist applications:

• Removable adhesive for rough substrates, such as corrugated cardboard, and for curved substrates, such as test tubes. Can also be used as a deep freeze adhesive.

• With filmic face materials RR28 has good long term removability, good clarity, UV-stability and water resistance. It can also be used as semi-permanent adhesive when combined with paper face materials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Freezer Adhesive

Freezer or deep freeze adhesive is a permanent adhesive designed for companies that are labelling items that need to be stored in cold storage, fridge or freezer environments.

The things to consider when choosing freezer adhesive labels are what temperature conditions you will be applying the labels and where they will be stored throughout your process.

Chilled

If your labels will be stored in a chilled cabinet / fridge then a permanent adhesive will be suitable with a minimum temperature of -15°C.

Freezer

If your labels will be stored in a freezer you will need a deep freeze adhesive with a minimum temperature of -45°C after application, labels must be applied at least -20°C to allow the adhesive to set.

Freezer adhesive is ideal for labelling at actual refrigerator temperatures or onto food packaging before they are exposed to deep-freeze conditions. The adhesive can be applied to slightly moist hard surfaces and is suitable for use on a wide variety of materials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Specialist Applications:

• Frozen food labels

• Cold store labels

• Specimen labelling

• Cryogenic labels

 

High Tack Adhesive

High tack adhesive is a strong permanent adhesive that is used when you have difficult surfaces to apply onto, e.g. plastic surfaces, or if you need the label to be extremely difficult to remove, e.g. asset labelling.

 

Specialist Applications

Recommended for hard-to-label applications requiring high adhesion:

 

• Product labelling (plastic surfaces)

• UL/CSA product labelling

• Appliance rating plate labelling

• Tyre labelling

 

High Temperature

High temperature labels require specialist permanent adhesive that will withstand high temperatures for many specialist applications.

 

Standard permanent adhesive will perform up to 60 - 80°C, if your application sees labels needing to withstand higher temperatures than 80°C you will need a high temperature adhesive. High temperature labels can withstand temperatures up to 150°C

 

Specialist Applications

Recommended for high temperature applications:

• Printed circuit board (PCB) labelling - high temperature labels for PCBs allow for tracking of electrical components throughout the production process as well as the labelling of finished products.

• Autoclave labelling (sterilising surgical instruments). Autoclave labels are designed to withstand some of the harshest autoclave environments to ensure you have a traceable sample every time.

• High-pressure high temperature sterilisation designed to remove contaminates and germs, will not remove autoclave labels.

• UL/CSA compliance product labelling.

• Asset labelling.

• Automotive labelling.

• Serial plate labelling.
