Label Materials for "Under the Hood" Automotive Applications
Westmoreland, N.H.- March 4, 2010 - Finding a durable label for your automotive "under the hood" application can be a challenge. This environment exposes labels to high temperatures, abrasion and harsh chemicals that can cause labels to yellow, shrink and fall off.
Polyonics offers two label materials; the XF-592 (polyimide) and XF-807 (aluminum), for use in "under the hood" applications for the automotive industry that will provide extra durability where polyester labels fail.
The XF-592 is a polyimide label with a high temperature aggressive acrylic adhesive and a high opacity white topcoat designed for barcode or alphanumeric identification. The aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive on this product is specifically designed to adhere to rough surfaces (i.e., engine blocks) where high temperatures occur.
The XF-807 is an aluminum label material with a permanent high-temperature acrylic adhesive and a high opacity, white topcoat specifically designed for thermal transfer printing. The aluminum face sheet provides excellent long term temperature and impact resistance over polymeric films.
These materials are compliant with the REACH & RoHS initiatives and are Halogen free. To learn more visit us at www.polyonics.com or contact our technical experts at (603) 352-1415.
