Introducing our cutting-edge solution for labeling in extreme cold temperatures – BOPP labels with Freezer Grade Adhesive! These innovative labels are specially crafted to withstand the harsh conditions of freezing and subzero environments, ensuring your crucial information stays firmly affixed even in the coldest of settings.
Today, we will explore the distinctiveness of labels designed for extreme temperatures, with a specific focus on the remarkable attributes of Freezer Grade Adhesive. It is a specially formulated hot melt adhesive that surpasses the performance of standard-grade alternatives. Its exceptional bonding properties are tailored to tackle the challenges posed by freezing temperatures, providing a reliable and long-lasting bond that endures even in the harshest cold environments.
Compared to standard-grade adhesives, freezer grade adhesives offer several advantages, including:
High Initial Tack
Freezer grade adhesives offer a remarkable feature known as a high initial tack. Initial tack refers to the quickness with which an adhesive develops its bond upon contact with a surface. In subzero temperatures, many adhesives can become less effective, resulting in delayed adhesion and compromised sticking capabilities. However, freezer grade adhesives have been specifically formulated to overcome these challenges. They exhibit a rapid and strong bonding ability as soon as they come into contact with a substrate, ensuring that labels adhere instantly and firmly to the target surface, even in extremely cold conditions.
Performance on Frozen Surfaces
Standard adhesives tend to lose their effectiveness in cold temperatures, as the low temperatures can cause them to become brittle, lose flexibility, and result in poor adhesion to frozen surfaces. Freezer grade adhesives, on the other hand, are engineered to withstand these frigid conditions. They maintain their flexibility and adhesive strength, even in the presence of frozen surfaces, ensuring that labels stay securely attached to containers, packages, or products stored in freezers.
Metal Drums and Plastic Wrap Compatibility
In various industries, such as food processing, pharmaceuticals, and chemical storage, metal drums and plastic wrap are commonly used for packaging and storage. Traditional adhesives may not provide adequate adhesion to these materials when they are subjected to cold temperatures. Freezer grade adhesives, with their superior bonding properties, are well-suited for sticking onto metal drums and plastic wrap, making them ideal choices for labeling containers and packages that will be exposed to freezing temperatures during storage and transportation.
Cold-Chain Supply Environments
Cold-chain supply environments involve the storage, transportation, and distribution of temperature-sensitive products, such as perishable foods, pharmaceuticals, and vaccines, within a controlled temperature range. Maintaining proper labeling in such environments is critical to ensure that products are correctly identified, tracked, and handled. Freezer grade adhesives are specifically formulated to meet the unique demands of cold-chain supply environments. They offer reliable adhesion and durability, even when subjected to prolonged exposure to low temperatures and temperature fluctuations during the supply chain process.
In summary, freezer grade adhesives are essential tools for businesses operating in cold environments. Their high initial tack, ability to perform on frozen surfaces, and suitability for cold-chain supply environments make them indispensable for maintaining clear and secure labeling, reducing the risk of misidentification or label detachment, and ensuring the integrity of products throughout the cold supply chain. Whether it's for industrial applications, medical facilities, laboratories, or any other setting where cold storage is a concern, using freezer grade adhesive labels ensures the necessary performance and reliability under challenging cold conditions.
