Polyonics offers the broadest array of barcode tag and label materials for 200°C to 600°C metal processing ID and tracking applications.
Westmoreland, NH (PRWEB) May 10, 2016
Polyonics will introduce two newly developed materials for use in thermal transfer printed barcode tags at the 16-19 May AISTech in Pittsburg. The new polyimide based XF-615 provides a high degree of abrasion resistance at temperatures up to 600C while the new XF-608 paper laminate offers increased tear resistance at an economical price for 200C tracking applications.
The 227 µm XF-608 represents a breakthrough in the high temperature, low cost paper tag market. It provides high contrast, thermal transfer printable surfaces and operates effectively at 200°C with short exposures up to 300°C. It produces minimal curl post heat cycle and provides nearly three times the tear resistance of other leading tag materials.
The 127 µm polyimide based XF-615 tag material includes durable, thermal transfer print surfaces that provide high abrasion resistance and maintain high contrast barcodes for improved readability at operational temperature of 500°C.
Other tag materials being exhibited include;
XF-610 and XF-612 (white and yellow): 127 µm polyimide with operational temperatures of 300-400C and short exposures up to 600C
XF-660: 229µm aluminum composite with operational temperatures of 350-450C and short exposures up to 500C
In addition, the following thermal transfer printable materials for barcode labels will be shown;
XF-803: 50µm aluminum can be applied up to 300°C and operates up to 500°C with short exposures to 600°C
XF-808: 50µm aluminum operates up to 300°C with short exposures to 350°C
XF-519: 50µm polyimide offers operational temperatures up to 225C with short exposures up to 325°C
The label materials all include high contrast print surfaces and aggressive permanent acrylic or ultra-high temperature silicone pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA).
Polyonics at a Glance
Polyonics manufactures high temperature materials used in thermal transfer printable labels and tags, engineered tapes, laser markable labels and flexible substrates.
