In the 1930s, self-adhesive materials were first applied in the United States. Due to the increasing demand for this special composite material, self-adhesive printing has gradually evolved into an independent printing field, and self-adhesive label printing at home and abroad More and more companies.
As far as my country is concerned, the unprecedented development of the printing industry in terms of production scale, technical level, and market space has driven the development of self-adhesive printing, and has reached an unprecedented level. According to statistics, the output value of my country’s label market in 2011 was 23 billion yuan. , The label output was 3 billion square meters, an increase of 21.1% and 20.0% respectively compared to 2010. In 2009, the label market output value was 19 billion yuan, and the label output was 2.5 billion square meters. In the same year, my country’s labels accounted for 6.4 of the global label output. %, so my country’s self-adhesive label market has great potential.
The earliest self-adhesive was produced in the hands of a chemist from the 3M company in the United States. It was in 1964. At that time, when he was researching various adhesive formulations, he formulated a kind of adhesive with greater viscosity but not easy to solidify. The new type of viscose used to paste things can be easily peeled off even after a long time. At that time, people thought that this kind of viscose would not have a great effect, so they did not pay attention to it. In 1973, 3M Company A new product development team for adhesive tape applied this adhesive to the back of a commonly used trademark, and then glued a piece of paper coated with a small amount of wax on the adhesive. In this way, the world’s first label paper was born. The role of the adhesive has been discovered one after another, and more and more people are using stickers. So what is a sticker?
Self-adhesive is also called self-adhesive label material. It is a composite material with paper, film or special material as the fabric, adhesive coated on the back, and silicon-coated protective paper as the base paper. Due to the variety of coating techniques, it is not Dry glue materials are formed in different grades, and the development direction is from the traditional roll coating and knife coating to the high-pressure cast coating direction to maximize the uniformity of the coating, avoid the generation of bubbles and pinholes, and ensure the coating The quality of cloth, while the technology of cast cloth coating is not mature in China, the traditional roller coating is mainly used in China.
The label made with self-adhesive is called self-adhesive label. It has the advantages of no brushing, no paste, no dipping, no pollution, saving labeling time and so on. It has a wide range of applications and is convenient and fast. , And become a finished label after printing, die-cutting and other processing.
The main characteristics and advantages of the self-adhesive label are that the self-adhesive label has the advantages of no brushing, no paste, no dipping, no pollution, saving labeling time, wide application range, convenient and fast, etc. All kinds of self-adhesive labels are It can be applied to materials that are incapable of general paper labels. It can be said that self-adhesive labels are a kind of universal label. Self-adhesive label printing is very different from traditional printing. Usually printing and processing on the label linkage, multiple processes are completed at once, such as graphic printing, die cutting, waste discharge, cutting and rewinding.
The application fields of self-adhesive labels are also very wide. They have been widely used in the daily chemical industry, and are mostly used in the pharmaceutical industry, electronics industry, supermarkets, logistics industry, anti-counterfeiting industry and other industries. Adhesive labels have become indispensable in people’s daily life and can become very common.
