Labels have a variety of applications and can be used at many stages of product production. Depending on the requirements, the labels must combine several characteristics: the design must meet all the demands of both the product and the customer; the information must follow the legal and regulatory requirements; the materials should be selected according to the usage conditions and the application.
Labels for plastics and powder coated surfaces
Long-term adhesion of labels on plastics with different surfaces and textures is often required for any type of vehicle. These materials are often unfavorable for the adhesion effectiveness.
The engine and other car components are characterized by the presence of a powder coating, on which the adhesion of labels is also challenging and requires specially selected adhesives.
Let's not forget the uneven or rounded surfaces, the irregular shape of which creates additional difficulty for long-term adhering of labels. In Rotoprint we will offer you the most suitable materials for the respective surfaces, so that the labels with the important information will remain in place for the required period.
Labels for metal surfaces
There are many places under the hood of the car that need to be designated wit warning labels or with important information. Such are, for example, the labels on the underside of the hood, which give information about the engine and emissions, as well as some of the labels that stand on the metal surfaces of car parts.
External influences such as big temperature fluctuations, vapors, oils, brake fluid, antifreeze and others make the life of these labels even more difficult. However, critical information and warning labels must remain legible throughout the life of the vehicle, which requires the correct inks, adhesives, and materials for the label.
Labels for rubber
To stick a label on a car tire is not an easy task. On the one hand, it is not smooth, but has irregularities, which requires high-quality adhesive and a level of flexibility from the label. On the other hand, the chemical composition of the tire itself can affect the label attached to it and reduce the adhesion. It is also important that no traces of adhesive material remain when removing the label.
Therefore, for the surface of car tires, it is important to make the right choice of the adhesives, materials for the individual layers of the label and the inks.
