TRUE CUT ADHESIVE
Delivering better initial tack and adhesion (especially at lower temperatures) as well as outstanding high-speed converting, cut above the competition for general-purpose, permanent adhesive performance.
Our wide range of papers share more than our proprietary portfolio of adhesive and top coat technologies.
Choosing the right technology and material for the task is critical, whether that means durable label stock that can withstand hostile environments or specialized paper designed for the high-speed processing of thermal and direct thermal labels.
Variable Printing uses Thermal and Direct Thermal Paper that is printed with
resin wax and wax ribbons.This printing style is used to create barcodes and other printing services.
Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method in which material is applied to paper (or some other material) by melting a coating of ribbon so that it stays glued to the material on which the print is applied.Direct thermal printing, no ribbon is present in the process.
Direct thermal printing: produces sharp print quality with good scannability.
Direct thermal is ideal for applications requiring only a short shelf life. Shipping labels and receipts are ideal applications.
Thermal transfer: delivers crisp, high-definition text, graphic and barcode print quality for maximum readability and scannability. Thermal transfer printing produces long-life image stability.
Heat is applied to the ribbon using a thermal printhead that melts the ink transferring it to the paper where it is permanent after it cools.
Wax ribbons: are the lowest cost choice, they are ideal for general label applications such as address labels. However, wax ribbons are the softest ribbons making them vulnerable to smudging and scratching.
Wax/resin ribbons: are suitable if you are printing onto semi-gloss paper or synthetic labels, they combine wax and resin to make the ribbons smudge and smear resistant.
Responsible Sourcing: a specific amount of the content is verified to come from sustainably sourced materials; Reduction of Materials: offers comparable or superior performance using less materials; or Recycle: a specific amount of the content is recyclable, made of recycled content, or enables recycling.
Stay ahead of regulations and improve the environment, especially when it comes to single use packaging. The materials in our ClearIntent™ Portfolio make it easy to improve the environmental impact of packaging without sacrificing performance.
