Tapes and industrial labels are among the vital equipment in a warehouse and lab. It’s the reason why you need industry-tested and high-quality labels.
There are different types of these labels. Each label has unique features, while the making of some labels is for specific tasks. Some of the differences in these labels arise from the materials used and the make of the labels.
The following are the diverse types of these labels used in industries.
Chemical resistant color labels
These labels are perfect when dealing with harsh chemicals. Chemical-resistant labels are of different widths and sizes. They come in diverse colors (at least six colors) to make them easy to label containers. It is thus possible to do labeling even when dealing with big projects. These labels are resistant to chemicals, as the name suggests.
These are among the common label types you can find in the market. Also, these are the most used labels in different companies. The pressure-sensitive labels are adhesive water-based that you can use as permanent labels. The removable ones are also available with unique designs. These labels enable you to peel without causing damage to the product’s surface. You will not need any solvent to remove the temporary pressure-sensitive labels.
Shrink sleeve labels
The other name for these shrink sleeve labels is the shrink-wrap labels. The printing of these labels is on a polymer (plastic). They wrap around the entire container or bottle. You heat these labels for them to shrink the film onto the products. There are many ways you can heat these labels. You can use a handheld gun, or you pass a heat tunnel via the conveyor belt. It’s applicable for bigger belts.
The other name for these labels is the direct thermal labels that change colors when you pass the heat. To print these labels, you need ink, tonners, or ribbons. You can create these labels using heat elements. You apply the heat directly to the label materials.
These labels aren’t perfect for long-lasting use. The greatest demerit of this labeling is that it fades fast and is not durable. When heat from a different source hits them, these labels change colors. These labels can affect any hidden messages and images on them.
Advantages of labeling in industries
Industries have many components and things that need labeling. Labeling grabs the attention of clients. You do the labeling with colored labels or large letters, images, and words. This encourages customers to buy the product by grabbing their attention. Some of the labeling advantages include the following:
Labeling in industries targets to set and code differences between industry products. It aids to limit the mixtures and confusion of different products. Labeling will help in grouping similar products together.
Labeling aids in setting aside the same or different products and coding. It also helps transmit the information, thus becoming easy to access vital information. It shows how to handle the product and your expectations.
The labels enable your clients to read the instructions of your products. The tags allow customers to know what is in the products. Labels that don’t give information and guidelines make customers pass.
Some vital information that customers need to know about your product is on the labels of the products. It includes the health risks or the list of ingredients. The labels also have directions and instructions on how to use and store the product. It enables you to fully understand how a product works and gauge if it’s safe for you.
