Consumers are looking for a manufacturer that produces self-adhesive labels to make a batch of labels. Many people will ask how to choose the material of the self-adhesive label, how to choose the one that saves money and worry? The editor summarizes and organizes for your reference:

There are many kinds of materials for self-adhesive labels. Many customers will ask, I want to customize labels, what kind of material do I need to choose? The following editor focuses on several commonly used materials in self-adhesive labels.

Coated paper

Coated paper self-adhesive labels are very common. Most of the outer box labels, material identifications, barcode labels, size labels, product information labels on the packaging, etc. used in daily use are made of coated paper, which is high in quality and cheap, easy to print, and not waterproof. , It can be torn, and can be stored for a long time. Generally, it can be stored for several years. The printing needs to be matched with wax-based ribbon.

Thermal Paper

Many people don’t know that thermal paper is also divided into one heat-sensitive paper and three-proof heat-sensitive paper. The first waterproofing is just waterproofing. The waterproofing here is different from the waterproofing of other materials. It means that the barcode, text, pattern and other information printed on the thermal paper will not be lost or blurred when it gets wet, rather than the label will not be lost in the water. Soaked. But not all water can be prevented. Do not use hot water to heat the thermal paper. Not only will the information be lost, but the label material will be damaged. The three-proof thermal paper is waterproof, scratch-resistant, anti-adhesive, and has a certain degree of alcohol resistance. In comparison, logistics, express delivery, etc. are subject to varying degrees of scratches and rain during transportation, and most of them use three-proof heat-sensitive materials. Not only used in logistics and transportation, thermal paper is widely used in various common labels such as supermarket price tags, clothing tag stickers, convenience store labels, barcode labels, international logistics package labels, and outer box marks. The general service life is less than one year, and ribbon printing is not required.

Thermal Transfer Adhesive Label

Waterproof self-adhesive label

The waterproofing mentioned here means that the material is waterproof, and the label will not be damaged by water. It is divided into membrane waterproof and waterproof material itself. Coated paper can be coated with a light film or a dumb film to process the surface to achieve a waterproof and glossy effect. It can also be tear-proof at a certain angle.

Bright silver PET label

Synthetic materials such as PET have different waterproof properties. The membrane materials include transparent PET, matt silver PET, color-changing matt silver PET, light silver PET, light gold PET, matt gold PET, silver silk dragon, golden silk dragon, milky white PET, bright Various PET materials such as white PET. This kind of material has good hardness and brittleness, stretch resistance, tear resistance, waterproof, temperature resistance of about 100 ℃, suitable for some relatively high-end electronic products, power supplies, lamps, packaging boxes Wait for the label to be used.

PVC materials include soft PVC, matte PVC, light white PVC, matte white PVC, light black PVC, matte black PVC, high temperature resistant PVC, transparent electrostatic film, light white electrostatic film and other materials, which can be waterproof, anti-corrosion, and have better texture. PET is softer, and is often used on curved surfaces such as daily necessities, cosmetics, and toiletries, and applied to high-end products.

Other film labels, such as pearl film, laser film, PP synthetic paper and rainbow film, are also waterproof, and generally have special material surface requirements. It is widely used in clothing, shoes and hats, knitwear, household goods, etc. It is commonly used in various materials, such as nylon, ribbon (satin ribbon), cotton tape, adhesive tape, etc. There are many color styles.

Anti-counterfeiting label

Anti-counterfeiting labels are used on packaging such as logistics, aviation, express delivery, documents, letters, and warehousing to prevent packages from being opened and checked without permission. There are various manifestations of labels such as VOID, honeycomb, small square, diamond, VOID OPEN, and opened with uncovered fonts.

Laser anti-counterfeiting labels are also called holographic labels, which are suitable for high-end product anti-counterfeiting and have higher prices. Secondly, it is anti-counterfeiting and fragile paper anti-counterfeiting when it encounters water. The fragile paper has a lower tearing ability than ordinary materials. Once it is opened, it will be destroyed irregularly and cannot be used twice to achieve the effect of anti-counterfeiting. At present, there are many anti-counterfeiting QR code labels used by e-commerce companies, and they are also a kind of anti-counterfeiting labels. You can check the serial number and scan the QR code by scratching off the silver on the label surface.

Security Labels

VOID anti-counterfeiting label

High-temperature-resistant material labels are generally resistant to high temperatures of 300°C and are used on surfaces such as electronic circuit boards and steel. During peak soldering or reflow soldering, the label will not blisters, yellow, or fall off. Low-temperature-resistant materials Freezers require special low-temperature-resistant labels throughout the year to achieve long-term storage of labels under low temperature conditions without falling off, and barcode text information will not be lost. Depending on the temperature to be used, the material is also different. The self-adhesive label industry is developing rapidly, and more functional materials are constantly updated.
