Freezer Grade Labels.
Coloured Orange PMS151
Type: Permanent adhesive RH9.
Composition: Rubber, hotmelt.
Use: Recommended for use in chill environment, particularly if the application surface is moist or if very high initial adhesion is required. Good low temperature performance once labelled. Very good adhesion to non-polar surfaces.
Typical technical values:
- Tack is the component that adheres to a surface with minimum pressure applied More min 12 N FTM 9
- PE-looptack min 10 N modified FTM 9
- Labelling temperature min 0 °C
- Service temperature min -40 °C
- Service temperature max 60 °C
Approvals: The raw materials conform to FDA 21CFR 175.105 (indirect food contact). Accredited laboratory has given the adhesive approval for direct contact with dry and moist, non-fatty foodstuffs and such kind of fatty foodstuffs like dairy products for which according to Commission Regulation (EU) 10/2011 the foodstuff simulants D1 applies.
Limitations: Not suitable for labelling of plasticised PVC. Not recommended for adhesive surface printing without testing beforehand.
DIRECT THERMAL LABELS & PRINTING
Direct thermal printing uses chemically treated, heat-sensitive material (e.g., a label or Eftpos receipt) that blackens when it passes through the printer.
To print direct thermal labels, you do not need a thermal ribbon (ink/toner). However, direct thermal labels are not suited if they will be exposed to heat, sunlight, or friction, as the print will deteriorate (fade). So, they tend to be used when the labels are not needed for very long such as shipping, logistics & courier labels. They work well as chiller or freezer labels, so long as the correct adhesive is being used (standard adhesive labels can peel and come off if frozen or refrigerated).
Many thermal printers can print both direct thermal and thermal transfer methods. However, some printers can only print using direct thermal method and not thermal transfer.
