Beat the heat with our direct thermal labels
Our direct thermal labels give your products an edge against the competition. These products are in high demand for self-service weigh-scale labels, meat labels and fruit and vegetable labels. Easy to use thermal printers turn up the temperature to produce labels that can be applied instantly to products in tight quarters – even behind the deli counter.
‘Top retail’ direct thermal face materials are used for weigh-scale labels, which provide variable information at the point of sale. These labels are used for a wide array of products which often require resistance to fat and oil.
Fruit and vegetable labels are often applied directly to edible skins, so their adhesives must be approved for direct food contact. These labels must maintain exceptional adhesion to their natural packaging as they travel through the supply chain.
Meats and cheeses often have greasy, rough or moist surfaces. These demanding applications are idea for ‘Top’ direct thermal face materials
