Pressure sensitive labels are the most common type of label used in the label converting industry today. These labels have largely replaced paper labels that were adhered with glue to a product's packaging. The name seems obvious - "pressure sensitive labels" means that the application of the label to the substrate simply needs pressure to stick. Pressure sensitive labels are chosen over glue applications because of the smooth look it creates, contouring around a product's packaging as well as its longevity.
Because pressure sensitive adhesives are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, special adhesives are used in order to assure the labels hold up in these more extreme environments. Our experienced technical experts can guide you through the material selection and qualification process.
