Durable Polycarbonate & Polyester Labels

Our under surface printed polycarbonate and polyester labels will offer protection against certain chemicals as the text is printed behind the substrate, so the graphic detail remains protected.

Polycarbonate will resist ethanol, petrol, diesel oil and nitric acid (<10%) whereas polyester will offer protection against acetone, diethel ether and xylene. However, this is subject to the correct grade of the substrate being specified, so please contact us with details of your requirement to enable us to advise accordingly.

Stainless Steel For Harsh Environments

For harsher environments, such as food processing lines, where chemicals such as caustic soda can be used for cleaning we would recommend a chemically etched stainless steel nameplate. As the text detail would be etched into the surface of the stainless steel substrate it is a permanent mark and will not be able to be removed by the cleaning process ensuring the label data remains visible. We can also offer over laminates, a full range of adhesives and fixings to ensure that you labels meet the required specification and suit the application in which they will be used.

GSM offers rugged barcode labels as part of our range of chemical resistant labels. We can produce these with unique barcodes on a range of substrates to ensure durability in even the harshest of environments.
