Thermal paper as decorative label
When competing for customers, they are an essential selling aid and at the same time a strong advertising medium. Most diverse functions and formats as well as unlimited design options. Modern production methods in UV flexo printing and UV letterpress printing, offset and digital printing leave plenty of room for creativity at all development and production levels. Besides true colors and all variations in four-color printing (or hexachrome in digital printing) there are additional possibilities for the refinement of labels (varnish, perforations, embossing hot and cold, partial adhesive application, partial detaching of label sections and die-cutting).
Thermal papers for industrial use
The daily permanent load on the various printer mechanisms in industrial operations places the highest possible requirements on the labels to be printed. In view of these requirements, Bizerba produces suitable labels whose materials are adjusted to the different printer technologies. Special die-cutting allows to detach individual sections (as proof or second label) from the label after affixing it to the product or packaging. A double liner then even allows subsequent removal of the entire label from a product.
"Neutral" and "Blank" thermal labels
They are adaptable, inexpensive and perfectly suitable for customers who want to design their labels with own hardware. Our "neutral" labels only consist of a preprinted frame for net weight, price, packed-on date and sell-by / use-by date. With our "blank" labels, the user designs the layout for all article data himself.
Thermal papers are used in connection with the thermal-direct printing process. It is particularly suitable for applications where the label's life cycle is short to medium. The result is a high-quality but cost-effective label print without the need of a transfer roll (ribbon).
Since the materials used for label production must meet high standards, standard materials of paper and film suppliers are only used in very rare cases. Original Bizerba thermal paper and adhesive qualities allow an exact adaption to use and application. We consider top material and adhesive as two different components which have to fulfill entirely different tasks – and we are able to combine these components in totally different material combinations time and again.
You may choose from among five variants in adhesive qualities:
- Labels with permanent adhesive adhere immediately. They are strong and durable on dry packages and at low temperatures.
- Special deep-freeze:
- For moist packages and deep-freeze products we use a special adhesive with relatively minimal initial adherence but extremely high end adherence.
- In the self-service area, a removable adhesive ensures that stray labels can be easily removed from a scale or scale platform without using expensive cleaning agents.
- Since this adhesive is easily removable with water, labels can be removed from E2 boxes or product packages, for example.
- It is sometimes required that the adhesive gets in direct contact with greasy food – for this application we use a food-grade adhesive.
Our own laminate production facility, combined with our in-house repro department, enables the flexible production and customer-specific design of labels. Our quality control begins with the goods receiving of raw materials and ends with the shipment of finished labels. The entire procedure is subject to a continuous certified process.
