MACtac: Durable Film Labelstocks

February 23, 2011

MACtac® Printing Products recently received British Standard (BS) 5609 marine immersion testing approval and certification on five additional durable film label stocks. BS 5609 is a specification for printed pressure-sensitive, adhesive-coated labels for marine use, which include requirements for the label base material. Labels are typically used for identification, warning and instruction.

Designed for long-term durability and performance in harsh environments, the durable film solutions adhere to a variety of substrates lasting, or in some cases, outlasting the life of the application. Typical durable film applications include lawn and garden, appliance and nameplate, chemical drums, and wet-cell batteries. Designed to address extreme application needs, the film solutions provide protection against solvents and chemicals, temperature extremes, ultraviolet light, moisture, and abrasion.
