When it comes to home electronics, small and large appliances, and other household goods, you need labels designed to withstand the long-term use and variable environmental conditions within the home.
UPM Raflatac offers a complete range of durable labels for electronics, appliances, and household goods. The labels feature moderate heat and chemical resistance, as well as lasting adhesion both inside the home and outdoors. Plus, our solvent-free adhesives are suitable for polar and non-polar surfaces.
Labels that truly stick around
For general-purpose home appliance uses, our RP37S adhesive gives high adhesion even on non-polar surfaces, as well as good resistance to water, chemicals, oils, and UV light. This adhesive works with films in combination with paper liners.
In more demanding household environments and under intensive use conditions, you need labels with a permanent adhesive combined with good temperature and chemical resistance. We have a variety of adhesives that meet the challenge, including RC15, RC18, and RC20.
RC15 is a permanent adhesive specially designed to provide outstanding adhesion on polar surfaces like glass, steel, or ABS. It offers excellent temperature and chemical resistance.
Our RC18 adhesive offers strength and permanence. It is uniquely designed for film face materials in end-uses requiring very good adhesion as well as good temperature and chemical resistance.
And for the highest performance in the toughest household uses, RC20 fits the bill. It’s an ultra-permanent clear adhesive for film face materials with a high coatweight for rough and demanding substrates. It also has very good temperature and chemical resistance.
Optimal face materials for household goods
For the most durable labels, we recommend polyester face materials. They offer good heat and chemical resistance as well as good readability when using thermal transfer (TTR) printing. We offer the following robust face materials for home appliances: PET Clear, PET White, and PET Silver.
