3M™ Films & Liners Label Materials encompasses a full selection of facestocks, liners and secondary liners for custom assembly that meets specific labeling requirements. Topcoated film facestocks include polyester, acetate, polyolefin and semi-rigid vinyl, and some are available with pre-applied 3M adhesive. Kraft and film liners are available with or without release coating on one or two sides.
For thermal transfer printing use 3M™ Thermal Transfer Polyester Label Material 7815EH. It combines good print definition with the chemical and abrasion resistance of a matt coating, and has a polyester facestock that provides durability in harsh environments. Our label material uses the 310E adhesive which resists oozing and provides a firm, high strength bond to a variety of surfaces, including high surface energy (HSE) plastics, metals and a variety of other substrates. It also offers good chemical and UV resistance. The TT5 topcoat provides a smooth matt surface, enabling excellent thermal transfer images at reduced burn temperature settings, and also allows for improved ink anchorage in traditional forms of press printing. This label material is UL and cUL recognised.
