In order to get the best return of investment on thermal labels, it is important to know when to use certain labels versus other labels. Ganson has already explained when to use paper facestock and now we want to teach the details of a polypropylene label.
Polypropylene labels are best utilized when there is a need for durability, sometimes the environment in which the label ends up in is not suitable for standard paper labels. The most common applications for polypropylene labels are shelf labels, bin labels, and any indoor applications requiring durable labels or moisture resistant labels, such as freezer labels.
When utilizing paper facestock, the chances of low life span on the labels are likely. Most paper facestock are used when there is a need for shipping material, receipts, visitor identification and common bar coding. When the application has no need for durability then the low cost for paper facestock is the best choice.
Most polypropylene labels come in a gloss or matte finished and can be utilized in place of polyester, polyethylene and PVC labels. All polypropylene labels have a high resistance to scratching, have a high performance acrylic adhesive, can withstand extreme weather conditions and are for outdoor and indoor use.
As a consumer, if there are issues with labels such as wrinkling, labels falling off, peeling or curling, scratching then taking a look into polypropylene labels would be the avenue to take.
