Sales Code
Product use
For use as barcode labels, name plates, warning, instruction or identification labels wherever a durable and dependable long-term solution on a high surface energy substrate is required: electronic components, domestic and industrial machines like hand-held electronics, housings, white goods, computer equipment, power tools and garden machinery. Excellent heat, chemical and UV resistance assure resilient adhesion for the lifecycle of products in a variety of challenging conditions. PET matt white TC 50/RC 15 offers excellent initial tack and final adhesion on polar surfaces like steel, aluminium, ABS or Polyester.

Service temperatureTemperature resistance of label applied to glass. Other substrates should be tested under original conditions. A variety of different substrates have been already tested according to the UL specification. Please see table on the last page.
Test ConditionsVisual Appearance
+150 °C for 24h on glassno significant change
-40 °C for 72h on glassno significant change
Shelf life
From the date of manufacture: 2 years at +20°C and RH50%.
Flexography, screen and letterpress. Special inks designed for non-absorbent materials should be used. The top-coated PET film provides excellent TTR printing results. The best durability can be reached with resin ribbons. We recommend validating the ink adhesion and durability under original conditions.
