Lintec has introduced a new labelstock, UH5070, which includes a “highly aggressive” adhesive enabling placement on challenging surfaces. The polyester labelstock is targeted at professionals that require labels for high-end applications and industrial components.

UH5070 provides superior adhesion to rough and textured surfaces, and is used for information and identification labels used on consumer devices and industrial components. It also offers high adhesive-to-adhesive strength, allowing customers to use the labelstock on applications such as loop tag labels.

Soichiro Fujinaga, technical manager of Lintec Europe comments: ‘There are a wide variety of surfaces – such as textured, low energy, foamed and talc-filled plastics, as well as powder coated or galvanised metals – that can cause issues with the performance of conventional adhesives.’

‘The labelstock that we are introducing to market provides excellent adhesion to these challenging surfaces,’ he said. ‘Not only does it deliver superior durability, it also converts cleanly and with minimal to no adhesive secretion ooze on press or during end-user processes, such as thermal transfer printing.’
