Application of Self-adhesive Labels in the Daily Chemical Industry

1. Overview #

There are a multitude of product types in the daily chemical industry, including shampoos, body washes, cleaners, cosmetics, etc. Self-adhesive labels play a crucial role in this industry. They are the primary medium for carrying product information, including brand identification, ingredient lists, production dates, shelf life, usage methods, etc., providing consumers with a basis for purchase decisions.

2. Product Features #

2.1 Diversity #

With a wide range of daily chemical products and their diverse packaging forms, various shapes, sizes, and colors of self-adhesive labels are needed to meet diversified packaging requirements.

2.2 Durability #

Since daily chemical products often encounter issues such as humidity, stains, and friction during use, self-adhesive labels need to have good waterproof, stain-resistant, and friction-resistant properties to ensure that they remain clear and intact throughout the product’s usage cycle.

2.3 Information-rich #

The label information of daily chemical products is usually very rich, including product names, brands, ingredients, safety warnings, usage methods, etc. Therefore, self-adhesive labels need to have a larger information capacity and be able to display this information in a clear and readable manner.

3. Printing Requirements #

3.1 Clarity #

The information content on the labels of daily chemical products is large, but the label area is usually small. Therefore, high-resolution printing technology is needed to present this information in a clear and vivid manner.

3.2 Heat and Humidity Resistance #

As daily chemical products may be stored in high-temperature and high-humidity environments, the printing ink and materials of self-adhesive labels must have good heat and humidity resistance to prevent information blur or color changes.

3.3 Safety #

Considering that the label may directly touch human skin, or might be accidentally ingested by children, the printing ink and materials must comply with relevant food safety and environmental protection standards.

4. Material Selection #

4.1 Plastic #

Plastic materials are widely used in self-adhesive label manufacturing because they have excellent waterproof, oil-resistant, and wear-resistant properties. However, environmental issues of plastic materials are increasingly prominent.

4.2 Paper #

Paper material is another common choice for self-adhesive labels. It is cheap and easy to print, but lacks water and wear resistance.

4.3 Biodegradable Materials #

With consumers paying more attention to environmental issues, biodegradable materials have begun to be used in the manufacturing of self-adhesive labels to reduce the environmental impact of the products.

5. Current Status #

In the current market environment, the demand for durable, clear, and attractive self-adhesive labels is increasing. With advancements in technology, label printing and manufacturing technologies are constantly improving, and new types of self-adhesive label materials and printing technologies are constantly emerging, such as environmental-friendly materials and digital printing technologies.

6. Future Development #

As consumers pay more attention to environmental issues, the demand for eco-friendly self-adhesive labels will increase. In addition, with the development of digital printing technology, future self-adhesive labels may have more personalization and customization functions to meet consumers’ demand for product personalization. At the same time, with the development of the Internet of Things and smart homes, future self-adhesive labels may be more closely integrated with daily chemical products and become an important interface for information interaction and user operation.
