Label Planet: A Sticky Issue: Choosing The Right Adhesive For You


https://www.labelplanet.co.uk


We offer a range of adhesives to suit all kinds of labelling applications. So how do you know which is the adhesive for you?

Megatack
Our most tacky (sticky) adhesive; this adhesive is designed for labels that need to be absolutely permanent or as a solution to the problem of applying a label to unusual surfaces (e.g. highly curved or uneven) or materials (e.g. fabric samples).
[Please note that this adhesive is only available to order by phone.]

High Tack
Our second most tacky (sticky) adhesive; this adhesive is also designed for labels that need to be permanent or for applications that involve an unusual surface or material. This adhesive is stronger than our standard permanent adhesive, when there is a need for an adhesive that has that extra bit of strength.

Standard Permanent
The standard adhesive used on most of our label products. This adhesive is intended to create a permanent bond between a label and a surface, on a wide range of materials and surface types. This adhesive acts like a standard removable adhesive when applied to fabric/clothing.

Marine Permanent
This is a special permanent adhesive that is designed for waterproof products. To achieve the marine standard (BS5609), an adhesive is tested in marine conditions for three months. This type of adhesive produces a waterproof, strong permanent adhesive that is suitable for a wide range of materials and uneven or curved surfaces.

Standard Removable
This adhesive is designed to allow a label to bond to a surface, while also being easy to remove as needed. Removable adhesives tend to be used when a label is needed on a temporary basis only.

Super Removable
This adhesive was specially designed for use on glass items (and is sometimes known as "Glass Removable"); it is designed to allow a label to be applied to a surface and then removed easily and cleanly (in other words, to leave no trace of adhesive residue behind). This adhesive should be used in place of a standard removable adhesive when the surface or item being labelled is made of a fragile material (such as glass or paper) that must not be damaged by the removal of the label.

Freezer Adhesive
Another special adhesive, this adhesive is designed for use on items that are to be stored in freezer conditions, such as food and drink items or medical and research samples.
