Matt White Polyester Label Uses
Designed for Chemical Drum labelling, it is also used in wet & damp areas due to the adhesive properties. Ideal for use on wheelie bins, garden products, farm / agricultural items or containers that hold liquids or may be exposed to wet conditions when in use. Another common use is for tracking labels where the products are travelling a long distance or exposed to varying weather conditions. Serial number labelling on white goods is another use for waterproof matt white polyester labels.

Matt White Polyester Label Specification
A matt white polyester (PET) label specifically designed for use on ‘hot fuse’ laser printers. Some slight curl may occur on exiting the printer, but this will flatten quickly. This material is primarily used in the area of ‘long life’ durable, tracking or product labels. This material also confirms to BS5609 part 2 for marine immersion. (To fully meet the BS5609 standard, independent testing of the label with overprinting included should be conducted to BS5609 Pt 3).
