In general self adhesive paper labels are a combination of silicone liner and adhesive layer and face material. The liner is one and the same for almost all types of self adhesive labels. (paper thermal transfer labels, paper direct thermal labels, foil labels etc.).
Self adhesive labels of different manufacturers differ in the type of the face material and the adhesive layer. Depending on the designation of self adhesive labels and the environment they shall be used in, adhesives are developed, corresponding to the specific requirements of each application. The most often used adhesives are acrylic based and are characterized with very wide temperature range of application (there are special developments for temperatures over 3000C) and are comparatively universal toward the materials, they can be stuck on. For specific conditions, for example low temperatures (up to 400С), high humidity and product pollution, the so called “hot-melt” adhesives are used. Adhesives with very specific characteristics are also used, as for example “removable” adhesive, that does not leave traces and remains entirely on the label, when it is unstuck from the product , or adhesive that permits multiple sticking and peeling off the label. The choice of suitable adhesive for each application is a very important task, aiming to guarantee the necessary adhesive properties of the labels, which will be used.
Self adhesive paper labels can provide good balance between quality and price for many general applications in labeling. Self adhesive paper labels are used for identification of products in retail and wholesale trade, food industry, transport and logistic, production plants, for price labels, for advertising labels, rating plates, etc.
We are a manufacturer of self adhesive paper labels that can be printed by thermal transfer or direct thermal print that can be pre-printed with logo or other permanent information, by flexo printing. According to the print method, self adhesive paper labels are divided in thermal transfer and direct thermal. When printing the two types of labels a method is used, in which the printout is produced through transfer of temperature, generated from the so called thermal print head. Thermal transfer printing uses a ribbon to produce long-lasting image on a wide variety of materials. No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which produces the image directly on the label, on which preliminary a thermal sensitive layer is applied. Direct thermal print is more sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the labels printed through this method.
Along with the paper labels as the most familiar, foil labels are becoming increasingly popular, especially in specific fields such as packaging industry, electronics, engineering and automobile industries.
Owing to their specific characteristics, foil labels have some significant advantages over paper labels. The basic advantage is that they are more resistant to environmental impact and are more-robust to tearing than paper labels.
Self adhesive foil labels are resistant to UV rays, high temperatures, humidity, chemical solvents and oils. Foil labels have good adhesion to glass, high and low surface energy plastics, metals as well as greasy and dirty surfaces.
We produce wide variety of self adhesive foil labels, which cover the high requirements of European standards for strength, resistance and durability.
We are a manufacturer of a wide variety of non adhesive labels, which are used when self adhesive label application is not suitable. Different methods are used for attaching non adhesive labels to the product - shelf labels are placed in special plastic strips, cloth labels are attached with additional plastic tie, labels for flowers are constructed to be attached without additional device.
Non adhesive labels are produced mainly from cardboard and different types of plastics / foils. Non adhesive labels are used in textile industry, retail, gardening, forest and lumber industry, metallurgy, etc.
In accordance with textile industry regulations in force, textile products have to be marked precisely, ensuring product and production details. Labels must contain information such as washing instructions, care instructions, fiber content, size, etc.
Esthetically printed, sewn in textile, the textile label is not only an information carrier, but a decoration. In case products are not suitable for marking with sewn-in labels, self adhesive textile labels are the perfect solution.
All required information is printed on the label very easy with the use of thermal transfer printer, connected to a personal computer.
This technology ensures high quality and resistance to washing, detergents and ironing.
We offer high quality taffeta and satin, ideal for various applications.
Security labels are means of protection against tampering, or undesired access to the product during storing, transport and warranty period. Application of a security label in a visible spot clearly represents sealing purpose as well as consequences following any tampering attempt. Labels are printed with various information, variable barcodes and / or serial numbers, thus providing a unique identification and proof of authenticity at any given logistics stage.
A label not tampered indicates that the product is sealed and original.
Price gun labels - produced from self adhesive uncoated paper in the following colours: white, fluorescent yellow, red, orange, green;
Labels for scales - for the production of scale labels, direct thermal self adhesive paper is used;
Water soluble labels - a perfect solution in the cases when a short term identification of the product is required, because label removal is almost instantaneous;
Jewelry self adhesive labels – Jewelry self adhesive labels are used for marking and labeling of glasses, rings, earrings, bracelets, watches, etc.;
Tags for flowers - tags, made from white polyester material with high smoothness, for marking flowers and bushes;
Punnet tags – for marking fruits and vegetables packed in nets special cardboard tags are used, containing product information, barcode and manufacturer’s details;
Multilayer labels - a good way for including more information for the product, or instructions in several languages;
Tickets - for production of tickets and subscription cards direct thermal and thermal transfer cardboard paper are used
All labels produced by our company (self adhesive paper labels, cardboard labels, tags etc.) can be pre printed by flexo print in 1, 2 or 3 colors for labels with technical or industry orientation. For labels with advertisement purpose we offer high quality multi color print and also a possibility for UV varnishing. Pre printed custom labels can be overprinted by thermal transfer printers, direct thermal printers, electronic scales, coders or other printing devices. The main part of the labels produced by us is winded on a roll, giving an opportunity for automatic label appliance by using automatic applicators. For small and middle productions manual applicators TOWA or label dispensers can be used.
Currently, the most widely used labels in the security systems for goods are the RF-labels. These labels are used in almost all sectors - from supermarkets and department stores, to professional markets.
The construction of the RF label is quite simple. The electronic part of the label is located at the bottom and is usually applied directly with a permanent adhesive on the product. A coil, which also serves as an antenna, is connected to a small capacitor. It receives and sends radio waves. Together, they form a resonant circuit with a frequency of about 8.2 MHz. When an activated label approaches the vicinity of the detectors(Gates), which are usually placed at the exit of a store, the radio-electronic oscillator circuit triggers an alarm. The deactivation of electronic article surveillance is usually be done after payment at the cashpoint either by mechanical control of the electronic part or by electrical manipulation.
The covering material on the top of the label is usually made of paper but can also be PE or PP material. The label can be imprinted with the particular information by a suitable printer. One of the biggest advantages of the RF-label is the low cost and the possibility to combine electronic retail security and pricing as well.
