Stuck on Adhesives

Another important aspect of your label is the adhesive. Selecting the correct adhesive is crucial to ensure that the label adheres properly, withstands the intended conditions, and performs its function effectively. Different adhesives offer different properties, so it’s essential to consider the specific requirements of the label application when choosing the adhesive for a pressure-sensitive label.

Many types of adhesives are used for pressure-sensitive labels, and the specific adhesive used will depend on the type of label material, the surface it will be applied to, and the conditions under which the label will be used.

Here are some of the most common types of adhesives used for labels:

Permanent Adhesive: This is the most common type of adhesive used for labels. It provides a strong, permanent bond between the label and the surface it is applied to. Permanent adhesives are used for labels that must stay in place for a long time. This adhesive is the most common and protects against most elements. It is often referred to as an all-temperature adhesive.

Removable Adhesive: This adhesive is used for labels that can be reapplied to different surfaces multiple times without losing adhesion. This is useful when labels need to be moved or reused without compromising their adhesive power. It will leave a residue when removed.

Repositional Adhesives: are a type of adhesive used in pressure-sensitive labels that allows the label to be easily removed and repositioned without leaving residue or causing damage to the surface. These adhesives provide temporary adhesion, allowing the label to be adjusted, removed, and repositioned multiple times before achieving a permanent bond.
