Acetates are a type of transparent film used in label facestocks
Acrylic-based is a type of adhesive that is durable and hard to remove. It is usually used in applications where high-resistance against UV rays, heat, and chemicals are needed. However, due to its firm composition, it does not work well on non-smooth surfaces.
Adhesion refers to the force required to separate a label from the liner

There are four main categories of label adhesives including permanent, removable, repositionable, and temperature-specific.
An adhesive Label is consists of four layers: topcoat, facestock, adhesive, and liner that is cut into desired shapes More adhesives can be either acrylic-based or rubber-based (hot melt). Tack is the component that adheres to a surface with minimum pressure applied More, shear resistance, adhesion, and environmental factors must first be determined to get the right adhesive that fits your label application.
Application temperature is the temperature of the label material at the time of application
An applicator is a machine that automatically applies labels to a substrate or product
Backing or backing paper (also known as release liner) is a sheet that supports the label until it is applied on a substrate or product
Barcode is a series of vertical lines that represents data that is readable using optical scanning devices
Bleed refers to ink and/or print that extends to the edges of the label. The label surface must be larger than the actual size of the artwork/design
BOPP, also known as biaxially-oriented polypropylene, basically a polypropylene (PP) stretched in two directions to flatten it. It is non-toxic and highly resistant to solvents and acids
