With increasing regulations and enhanced security needs, the market for durable labels expands. As more converters look to offer durable labels, it’s a good idea to understand the reasons to use these labels and why you’d want to offer them in your portfolio.
Durable labels are essential for applications that need to convey safety information and serve as a warning to users. Conveying how to properly use a power tool is one example of when to use a durable label. These labels must offer extensive resistance to many factors, such as:
Another reason to use a durable label is if the product needs additional security to ensure it has not been tampered with prior to use. This is especially important for the following applications:
- Warranty or void if removed labels
- Medical and pharmaceutical tracking
- Computers and A/V equipment
Using durable labels for these applications ensures that the label is impossible to remove cleanly and will convey obvious tampering if removal is attempted.
Durable labels also offer the performance capabilities to ensure a brand’s logo and identity remains consistent even when exposed to:
- UV light
- Harsh environmental factors
- Extended wear and tear
These types of labels are also ideal for barcode applications and for end-use products that require tracking and tracing. This is because they are able to withstand exposure to chemicals, harsh climates and extreme temperature without any negative effects.
