Minimum labelling temperature
5 °C
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%. Prolonged storage at higher temperatures and/or humidity levels will shorten the shelf life.

AdhesionDue to the fact that the adhesive needs a certain time to reach its final adhesion, we recommend waiting at least 24h (better 72h) after dispensing the label to the substrate before proceeding with any performance tests.

Test Conditions: 23°C, 50%RH
FTM1: 180° Peel Adhesion (300 mm/min) with 72 h dwell time.
