What Can Matt White Polyethylene Labels Be Used For?
Polyethylene is generally chosen over Polyester due to its pliability; the strong adhesive and pliable material is ideal for curved or uneven surfaces. Chemical drum labelling is a major user of this product which also has the benefit of BS5609. Commonly used outdoors or in wet / damp conditions so wheelie bins, bathroom, kitchen or garden products. Also, a good product for signs within construction, engineering or maintenance companies, where they are subject to changeable weather conditions. Wristbands for hospitals or festivals.
