The release liner is made up of silicone-coated paper or plastic. Several packaging applications use self-adhesive labels to display information, which promotes awareness about the product’s brand. Important contents such as barcode, product description, track and trace coding, and authentication coding are conveyed using self-adhesive labels. Furthermore, self-adhesive labels add a decorative look, thus increasing customer attention and brand recognition. Self-adhesive labels are printed using laser printer and inkjet printer photocopiers. Self-adhesive labels are also referred to as pressure sensitive labels as they adhere to the surface when pressure is applied.
Self-adhesive labels are available in the market in different forms based on nature of application. Depending on the lifespan of labels, self-adhesive labels are of two types: temporary or removable and permanent. Temporary or removable self-adhesive labels are primarily used as price tags or advertisement materials. Permanent self-adhesive labels are extensively used in electrical and electronic appliances, HVAC, etc. On the other hand, based on chemical properties of the coating, self-adhesive labels are classified as acrylics, vinyl, polyurethane, epoxy, and elastomers. The appropriate form or type of self-adhesive labels can be selected depending on various factors such as surface texture, environmental conditions, durability and performance, and size and shape of label.
