Additional Capabilities & Products
Our labels are engineered to meet today’s demanding performance requirements and to adhere to difficult-to-bond-to surfaces, while also featuring optimum chemical and temperature resistance. They are available in a variety of face stocks, adhesive systems, and release liners. Don’t worry; our labels are too useful to disappear from this world any time soon.
Pressure Sensitive Labels
The term “pressure sensitive” might describe you on a Monday morning, but it also describes a variety of adhesives widely used in automotive labeling. Pressure sensitive or “self-adhesive” labels are popular in part because they’re so easy to use. Most commonly used label adhesives, such as acrylics, are considered pressure sensitive. “Pressure Sensitive Label” really describes any adhesive that is tacky at room temperature and has the ability to bond to surfaces, even those with low surface energy (think: slippery surfaces), when force is applied.
Security labels are used when tamper evidence and prevention are needed. Products such as 3M’s™ Destructible Security Labels adhere aggressively to surfaces so that the label is destroyed upon attempted removal. 3M’s™ Tamper-Indicating Security Labels go a step further by leaving evidence on the application surface should someone attempt to remove them.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags provide a number of identification and tracking benefits for automotive suppliers, tiers, and OEM’s. RFID tags or “smart labels” function via a tiny radio transmitter that’s powered by a battery. Our self-adhesive RFID tags are available in a variety of configurations and will adhere to many difficult-to-bond-to automotive substrates. RFID labels make it so easy to track items that you’ll find yourself wondering if they’ll work on your car keys.
“Zoned adhesive” refers to label products that have been designed specifically to have partial adhesive coverage. Typically used to meet special application or manufacturing requirements, these products are often used to keep adhesive away from key surfaces, or to function with automated dispensing equipment.
