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.
|Label Adhesive Type||Label Adhesive Make Up||Tack||Peel Adhesion / Shear||Minimimum Application Temp (℃)||Service Temp (℃)||Label Application||Perfect for...||Not Recommended for...|
|Standard Removable||Acrylic Based||Medium||Low||-25||-40 to 60||Medium tack, combined with good removability, suited for Cardboard, PE-Films and Glass. Take care on coated surface materials as it may not be suitable.||Cardboard, PE, Glass.||Coated Surfaces.|
|Ultra Removable||Acrylic Based||Medium||Low / Easy Peel||0||-20 to 70||Medium tack with excellent removability. Particularly suited for labelling smooth objects, books, glass or metals. Not recommended for rough and sharp cured surfaces.||Books, Glass, Metals.||Rough Surfaces, Heavily Curved Surfaces.|
|Standard Permanent for Paper||Acrylic Based||High||Very High||0||-30 to 80||Wide range of applications, price point labels, industrial labels, suitable for labelling rough surfaces but not heavily curved surfaces.||Paper, Industrial labelling.||Heavily Curved Surfaces.|
|Standard Permanent for Filmic||Acrylic Based||High||High / Very High||0||-30 to 80||Filmic label adhesive for various surfaces. Ideal for cosmetics & personal hygeine industries.||Plastics, Metals.||Rough Surfaces.|
|Permanent - Hi Tack||Acrylic Based||Very High||High / High||-10||-30 to 80||Excellent tack on cold surfaces down to -10℃. Suitable for polar and non-polar surfaces such as plastic containers etc. Once labelled, becomes highly waterproof.||Cold Environments, Plastics, Wet Environments.||Warm Temperature Applications.|
|Permanent - Hi Tack (up to -10℃)||Acrylic Based||Very High||Very High / Very High||-10||-30 to 80||Improved tack on cold surfaces the down to -10℃. Suited to polar and non-polar surfaces such as plastic containers. Ideal for fast running applications due to initial tack. Once Labelled, becomes highly waterproof.||Cold and/or Wet Environments as well as plastcs.||Warm Temperature Applications.|
|Permanent - Water Based materials||Acrylic Water Based||Medium||High / High||5||-10 to 75||Good adhesion to wet surfaces at low temperatures. Designed for glass containers, excellent resistance to immersion in water/ice. Not suitable for highly curved surfaces.||Glass, Plastics, Wet or Warm Environments.||Cold Application Envrionments.|
