Polyester thermal transfer labels are usually the label of choice for industries where products are placed in harsh environments and require a high-degree of durability. These labels are designed to withstand extremely high or low temperatures, corrosive chemicals, and normal wear and tear of highly active industries.
Polyester is a short name for polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a long-lasting film that has multiple dimensions of high-performance capabilities. There are many different applications and uses for this particular label, such as industrial parts, appliances, electronic components, automotive, consumer electronics and medical devices. These sectors require labels on their products that are resistant to harsh temperatures, abrasive solutions and will last for years to come.
Within the medical community, the need for a label that can remain intact for many years under a significant amount of wear and tear is a serious issue. While in other industries, a worn-out label can be a nuisance, a failed label on a medical device could be a matter of life or death. This is why medical device manufacturers turn to the durability of polyester thermal transfer labels on their vital medical devices.
"When deciding on a label, the most important factors are the conditions labels will be exposed to and the cost of their production," GBS, a company that specializes in financial software and systems, writes. "When selecting a polyester label … you should be well aware of conditions such as extreme temperatures, sunlight, moisture, rough handling, image quality, surfaces, and the length of time the label needs to exists."
