Valumark Polypropylene Labels

“VALUMARK” Labels are subsurface printed, which provides an extra layer of protection for logos, copy, and bar code against solvents, caustics, acids, and mild abrasion. This unique process eliminates the need for a laminate thereby eliminating the additional cost for the laminate as well as the possibility of delamination. The .002″ thick adhesive provides excellent adhesion to hard-to-adhere-to plastic surfaces. The polypropylene material is naturally receptive to thermal transfer printing for possible on-site printing applications and easily conforms to uneven and curved surfaces.

MATERIAL
.002" thick polypropylene (available in white, silver or clear). This material can withstand temperatures up to 200°F for short durations.
SERIALIZATION
Bar code and human-readable equivalent is produced using the latest high-resolution digital technology available, which provides excellent clarity and easy scanning. Code 39 is the standard symbology with a range of 2.7 to 9.4 CPI (characters per inch). Optional symbologies include Code 128, I 2 of 5, 2D DataMatrix and QR Code.
LABEL COPY
The label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. All copy, block type, stylized type, logos, designs, and bar code are subsurface printed. This unique process provides excellent resistance to solvents, caustics, acids, and moderate abrasion.
COLORS
Standard colors include black, red, yellow, green or blue. Custom colors available at no additional charge. Due to contrast needed for the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black.
ON-SITE PRINTING
Option #1: Due to the natural receptivity to thermal transfer printing “VALUMARK” Labels provide users the opportunity to print their own variable information on-site. We recommend using IIMAK’s SP-330 Super Premium Resin Thermal Transfer Ribbon which is designed to withstand harsh environment labeling applications while providing outstanding print quality. The IIMAK’s SP-330 provides the highest levels of resistance to abrasion, heat, steam, and various chemicals including gasoline, mineral spirits, engine oil, bleach IPA, antifreeze and sulfuric acid. Option #2: Impact printers such as dot matrix printers and typewriters will require the optional printable matte laminate in order to print on site as will any markings with a writing utensil. Standard Adhesive: .002" thick low surface energy, pressure-sensitive adhesive provides excellent adhesion to plastic surfaces, especially hard-to-adhere-to surfaces like polypropylene and polyethylene.
