A lot of applications require high temperature labels. In industries like electronics, aerospace and automotive, labels need to be able to withstand high temperatures and still be completely legible. Either barcodes or human text, labels in these areas must be effective.
For high temperature applications, our Polyimide (Kapton) labels are durable enough to remain effective and efficient. Available in several different colors, these labels also meet the specifications for REACH, RoHS, PFOS, WEEE and are Halogen free. Our high temperature Polyimide labels will withstand temperatures up to 1,000°F. In addition to being able to handle extreme temperatures, AB&R’s Polyimide labels are resistant to chemicals and abrasion as well.
Polyimides were developed in the 1950s, they are widely used in the electronics, aerospace and other precision industries. The most common polyimide material used for labeling applications today is Dupont’s Kapton.
Kapton Polyimide film is known for its thermal stability, resistance to high temperatures and flexibility. There are several layers to a polyimide label, including the backing liner, the silicon release material, the polyimide and the printable topcoat.
Polyimide labels can be used by companies that want complete traceability, while requiring a label that can withstand extreme conditions. Polyimide barcode labels can be applied to products at the beginning of the production process with the confidence of knowing that the label is durable enough to keep the information in useable throughout the manufacturing process.
They can withstand extreme temperatures for prolonged periods of time, solvents used in cleaning parts and other harsh manufacturing processes where standard labels will break down.
The metals industry is another industry that requires extremely durable labels to identify metal products, with legible labels, as they go through the manufacturing process.
AB&R has the Polyimide barcode labels you can rely on for supreme traceability, while holding up to the extreme conditions that are a part of your manufacturing process.
