3M™ Label Material 3929 thermal transfer printable retro-reflective film with 3M™ Adhesive 200 on a clay-coated paper liner is designed for long range bar code scanning. When bar code printed, the retro-reflective facestock extends the maximum and minimum scanning distance of long range scanners. NOTE: 3M is unable to specify a maximum scanning distance with this material because of the differences between long range scanners.
Designed for use with long range scanners available from Symbol Technologies, PSC and Hand Held Products. The maximum and minimum scanning distance of these scanners will increase with the use of this material. The range at which a bar code can be scanned is dependent on the bar code width; i.e., a 75 mil bar code will scan at a longer distance than a 50 mil bar code. Scanners not designed for long range scanning may not be able to scan bar codes printed on this product – specific bar code verifiers and scanning device recommendations can be obtained from the wide choice of suppliers selling in the marketplace. Fan folding is not recommended, roll-to-roll is the preferred continuous printing process.
