When purchasing self-adhesive labels, pay attention to the requirements of materials, types, uses, etc., as follows:

1. Pay attention to the material

Coated paper labels:
It is a common material for barcode printers, and its thickness is generally about 80g. Widely used in supermarkets, inventory management, clothing tags, industrial production lines and other places where coated paper labels are used more. Coated label paper has the best performance, and its white ultra-smooth uncoated paper is an excellent base material for thermal transfer printing.

PET Premium Label Paper:
PET is the English abbreviation of polyester film, which is actually a polymer material. PET has good hardness and brittleness, and its common colors are sub-silver, sub-white, bright white and so on. According to the thickness, there are 25-fold (1-fold = 1um), 50-fold, 75-fold and other specifications, which are related to the actual requirements of the manufacturer. Due to its excellent dielectric properties, PET has good anti-fouling, anti-scratch, high temperature resistance and other properties, it is widely used in many special occasions, such as mobile phone batteries, computer monitors, air conditioner compressors, etc. In addition, PET paper has good natural degradability, which has increasingly attracted the attention of manufacturers.

PVC Premium Label Paper:
PVC is the English abbreviation of vinyl. It is also a polymer material. Common colors are subwhite and pearl white. The performance of PVC is similar to that of PET. It has better flexibility than PET and feels soft. It is often used in some high-end occasions such as jewelry, jewelry, watches, electronics, and metal industries. However, the degradability of PVC is poor, which has a negative impact on environmental protection. Some developed countries abroad have begun to develop alternative products in this regard.

Thermal Paper:
It is a paper material treated with a high heat-sensitive thermal coating. The high-sensitivity surface material can be applied to a low-voltage print head, so the wear of the print head is extremely small. Thermal paper is a kind of thermal paper specially used in electronic scales and cash registers. The easiest way to test thermal paper is to scratch the paper with your fingernail, which will leave a black scratch. Thermal paper is suitable for shelf labels such as cold storage and freezer, and its size is mostly fixed at 40mmX60mm standard.

Clothing tag:
Multi-purpose double-sided coated paper, the thickness of coated paper used for clothing hang tags is generally between 160g-300g. However, clothing tags that are too thick are suitable for printing, and clothing tags printed with barcode printers should be around 180g, so as to ensure good printing results and protect the print head.

◆Scope of application: electronics, home appliances, automobiles, chemicals and other industries
◆PET: It has strong toughness, is crisp and hard, and is suitable for the identification of items with a smooth surface. The common colors of PET label paper are sub-silver, sub-white and bright white. Due to the excellent media properties of PET, it has good anti-fouling, anti-scratch, high temperature resistance and other properties.
◆PVC: poor toughness, soft and adhesive, suitable for marking items with uneven surface

Synthetic paper:
◆Toughness is between the two, suitable for marking items on the surface of bottles and cans
◆Applicable Ribbon: All resin ribbons are required (subdivided according to the label material to match the ribbon model)
◆Electronic and electrical labels: synthetic paper, PET
◆Characteristics of synthetic paper: Synthetic paper has the characteristics of high strength, tear resistance, perforation resistance, wear resistance and folding resistance, moisture resistance, and insect resistance. can be applied. Direct contact with food is possible.
