Chemical Test Data

Thermal transfer printed surface of the label was tested in chemical rub tests and submerged in water over a period of 72 hours.
Abrasion and intense cleaning may wear away the label copy after an extended amount of time. Water alone will have no effect on image quality or label adhesion. These tests were conducted for a limited period of time in strict laboratory conditions.
In order to achieve maximum satisfaction we highly recommend that any customer considering use of this product test the labels in the environment in which they will be used.

Temperature Test Data

Five wash/dry cycles with 71°C disinfection process, hydrogen peroxide wash/soak, tumble dry at 71°C. The customer was 100% satisfied with the label image and adhesion and did not see yellowing of the label or embrittlement.

Destructive Test Summary
