Not all high temperature labels are the same

Temperature-Resistant Label Benefits

Check out the differences between temperature-resistant labels and standard paper-based labels:

  1. Exceptional durability
  2. Resistance to abrasion and smudging
  3. Holds up in direct contact with moisture
  4. Can withstand short or extended periods at high temperatures
  5. Doesn't require additional sealants or overcoats
  6. Can survive multiple cooling or heating cycles

In conclusion , if your products face harsh conditions or climates, high temperature label sticker can offer durable labels that are up for the challenge.

General application of high temperature label

A lot of applications require high temperature labels. In industries like electronics, aerospace and automotive, labels need to be able to withstand high temperatures and still be completely legible. Either barcodes or human text, labels in these areas must be effective.

For high temperature applications, the Polyimide labels are durable enough to remain effective and efficient. The high temperature Polyimide labels will withstand temperatures up to 1,000°F. In addition to being able to handle extreme temperatures, Polyimide labels are resistant to chemicals and abrasion as well.

Polyimides were developed in the 1950s, they are widely used in the electronics, aerospace and other precision industries. The most common polyimide material used for labeling applications today is for high temperature label..

Polyimide film is known for its thermal stability, resistance to high temperatures and flexibility. There are several layers to a polyimide label, including the backing liner, the silicon release material, the polyimide and the printable topcoat.

Polyimide labels can be used by companies that want complete traceability, while requiring a label that can withstand extreme conditions. Polyimide barcode labels can be applied to products at the beginning of the production process with the confidence of knowing that the label is durable enough to keep the information in useable throughout the manufacturing process.

They can withstand extreme temperatures for prolonged periods of time, solvents used in cleaning parts and other harsh manufacturing processes where standard labels will break down.

The metals industry is another industry that requires extremely durable labels to identify metal products, with legible labels, as they go through the manufacturing process. The Polyimide barcode labels you can rely on for supreme traceability, while holding up to the extreme conditions that are a part of your manufacturing process.

Heat resistant or high temperature labels and tags are labels (or tags) that can be used at temperatures over 150 degrees C (and in some cases, up to 1,650C). They come in different colours and finishes (gloss, silver metallic etc.).  All can be pre-printed with a logo and text and can be overprinted with variable information such as serial numbers, batch codes or barcodes.

Some labels need special applicators

High temperature labels (sometimes known as heat resistant or heatproof stickers) have different characteristics and won’t all perform the same way.  For example, some label materials can withstand prolonged high temperatures whilst others will only work at high temperatures for short periods.  Not all labels can be applied at high temperatures and thought needs to be given to how much rubbing or abrasion is likely to be encountered.

Heat resistant labels may also need to survive multiple reheating cycles.  Other things to bear in mind are the method of applying the labels to the material.  Thermal transfer ribbons (inks) need to be carefully matched to the label and have to be tested.
