Thermal Transfer Barcode Labels & Direct Thermal


Lynk Data Systems can produce a wide range of adhesive labels, the most common types of adhesive labels include: Permanent, Peelable, Ultra Peelable, Freezer or Frost Fix and High Tack.


PERMANENT - typically not designed to be removed without tearing the stock, damaging the surface or using solvents. The adhesion strength and speed can also be varied. For example, full adhesion can be nearly instant or the label can be almost removable for a short period with full adhesion developing in minutes or hours (known as repositionable adhesives). PEELABLE - Adhesion is fairly strong and will not fall off in normal circumstances, but the label can be removed relatively easily without tearing the base stock or leaving adhesive behind on the old surface. The adhesive is usually strong enough to be applied again elsewhere. this type is frequently known as "removable". There are many different types of removable adhesives, some are almost permanent, some are almost "ultra peelable". ULTRA-PEELABLE - Designed principally for use on book covers and glass, when removed these adhesive labels do not leave residue whatsoever, adhesion is weak and only suitable for light duty applications. Normally these labels have very little adhesion to anything once they have been removed. FREEZER or FROST FIX - Most permanent and peelable adhesives have a service temperature limit of -10 degrees Celsius, whereas freezer (otherwise known as frost fix) adhesives have a service temperature of -40 degrees Celsius and are suitable for deep freeze use. HIGH TACK - A type of permanent adhesive that exhibits a high initial grab to the application surfaces, and is commonly used at higher coat weights to enable labels to adhere strongly to difficult, rough or dirty surfaces.
