Label Adhesives

When it comes to label adhesives, you want something that's going to stick around. Whether you're looking for a permanent solution or something that can be removed without leaving a mess, we've got you covered.


Why do label adhesives matter?

When deciding on a label composition, one major decision is about the stickiness and durability of each adhesive.

Adhesive choice can have an immense impact on how well your labels hold up over time as well as their ability to adhere properly without any issues at all - especially if you're planning on sticking them onto a specific type of surface.

What are the types of label adhesives?

At CS labels, we have a range of adhesive types available. However, the more important question to ask is “what is your label being applied to?”

We're here to help you find the perfect adhesive

Whether it be a bottle label, plastic tub label, or maybe even aluminium can, you will need to consider the uses and environment.

There are a number of different types of adhesives to suit very low or high temperatures as well as application surfaces.

The guide below will help you decide on the best label adhesives for your product and application.
