Heat Resistant Labels

Heat resistant labels are specialist products and in the case of labels needing to survive over 350 Deg C, tend to be very expensive compared to standard labels.  Bear in mind the hidden costs of mis-identifying high value items, which can run into thousands of pounds, expect to pay around £1 per label or tag for labels to survive in the very high temperature ranges.

Features

High Durability

The aggressive pressure sensitive adhesives are specifically formulated to remain firmly affixed to PCBs and components through wave solder, reflow and high pressure washes. 

High Resolution

Polyonics high-gloss materials are designed specifically for printing high resolution 600 dpi thermal transfer printing. 

Flame Retardant

The labels are either recognized or tested to the UL94 VTM0 standard, tested to the FAR 25.853 and BSS 7238/7239 aerospace flammability, smoke and toxicity standards and/or tested to the FMVSS 302 automotive burn test.

Non-Reflow

These durable label materials provide increased ink adhesion without requiring reflow to set the ink.

Industries

  • Electronics (consumer, industrial)
  • Transportation (automotive, trucking, rail)
  • Aerospace (commercial, military, space)
  • Medical (device, laboratory, cryogenics)
  • Industrial

Questions to consider

Labels can be applied by hand, manual applicator, semi-automatic applicator or fully robotic system. Labels need to resist for long term or short term some extreme external conditions.

This is your ultimate questions. Depending on your answer - you will have different range of labels. Also, it's important to know duration of max temperature.

You should be aware of your maximal temperature, but also what will be constant temperature around label 

Amount of abrasion or scuff that may result during shipping, handling or storage.

If so,  this will help businesses identify any safety controls needed in the workplace, and tell workers how to deal safely with a chemical.

Do you need just a barcode, QR code, pre-printed design, etc.

Labels can be applied with adhesive part, but also they can be nailed, bolted, spot welded or clipped into place to identify items.

Client's review

We struggled to find a supplier who could get the right label material in a reasonable time-frame. Expert Labels understood what we needed, sent us samples to test and supplied us with labels that survived in our kilns - thank you.
