  • Case Study: Durable Labelling Solution For Heated Oily Pump Motor

    PUMP MOTOR LABELLING SOLUTION - AIR PUMPING / FEBRUUS The Application: Air Pumping approached us earlier this year after searching for a suitable labelling solution. The requirement was for a large label that could be applied to the oily surface of a hot-running pump motor, replacing the previously imprinted metallic plate. The plate could reach temperatures of 60-70°C with the potential to overheat further. Our client initially had concerns about the shape of the label, which would need to adhere to the circular area of the plate while accommodating various bolt holes around the pump motor. The Labelling Solution: After assessing the application requirements, we advised our RML-2196 high-performance, durable, abrasion/chemical resistant label construction. This would meet the spec while offering a robust, durable, oil and abrasion-resistant surface, coupled with an aggressive extra perm acrylic adhesive, providing excellent permanency and durability. This particular label construction is capable of enduring temperatures up to 120°C, which is close to twice the requirement. This provides ample headroom should the application overheat. Supplied as one piece, the label simply peels away from the roll and features perforated holes to be cut out and applied perfectly over the plate and subsequent bolt holes. The material for this label is the RML-2916 durable matt silver polyester. The print-guard substrate is a durable scratch-resistant, clear gloss polyester and the adhesive is a permanent, high-tack solvent acrylic for a lifetime bond. Rating Plate Label As a side note, Air Pumping had already been using one of our durable, printable labels for the pump motor's rating plate, a cost-effective and increasingly more popular method for providing rating plate information. This label is an industrial-grade metalised polyester, using an ultrabond acrylic adhesive for challenging environments. It is laminated but computer printable, allowing the client to print information, such as the serial number and model as seen above. We were very pleased with the outcome of this label and so were our clients. There can be a lot to consider when choosing the right label for the job, which is why we always advise speaking with a labelling expert to get the right label for your application bespoke to your requirements. We hope this guide has helped. If you have any questions or you are ready to take your labelling to the next level, give us a call, freephone 0800 023 9277 or drop us an email.

  • The Magic of Oil-Absorbing Labels

    Oil Absorbent Labels Romark Labels Oil Absorbent Labels For Oily Surfaces... We know that labelling compliance is a critical part of manufacturing and business. In some industries, however, particularly automotive and manufacturing, labelling becomes difficult due to the oily nature of the application. Oily surfaces are notoriously difficult to clean down and prepare for label adhesion, often requiring thorough cleaning, drying and, in some cases, chemicals to fully prepare the application's surface for a standard label. This is a tedious and time-consuming activity, impacting more important activities and productivity. Romark's unique oil-absorbing label adhesive counters this problem, by providing an oil-absorbing label that can be applied on top of oily surfaces. How Does It Work?  The adhesive reacts with the oil, soaking it into the adhesive and in the process creating a stronger adhesive bond to the application. However, Oil Absorbent labels aren't magic, but they're close! They don't soak up oil like a sponge, the surface area must still be wiped first with a dry material. In the example below, we used Engine Oil and wiped the Oil with nothing but some tissue paper to create a wider oily surface area for the label. After that, we applied the label and waited approximately 30 minutes for the label to adhere. There can be a lot to consider when choosing the correct label for the job, which is why we always advise speaking with one of our labelling experts to get the correct label for your application, bespoke to your requirements. You can also read our blog post here which might help shed some light on labelling and labelling applications for you.

  • Outgassing and Label Bubbling - Why Does It Happen?

    Outgassing - Labels That Bubble. Why Does It Happen? "Outgassing is the process in which a non-metallic material such as a polymer, adhesive, rubber, or potting compound/epoxy will release gas when exposed to heat and or a vacuum. This gas will eventually condense on other materials and could render them inoperable." - Source: Samtec The Problem: Particularly in the manufacturing industry, products sometimes come straight off the production line requiring immediate labelling. Products made of materials such as plastics, acrylics, and polycarbonate. If that product is still hot when the label is applied, outgassing can occur almost instantly. Some labels can experience label bubbling due to environmental factors too, such as extended exposure to sunlight. In this case, our client was experiencing outgassing on thousands of their large, plastic-based products, which needed labelling as soon as they had left the mould. This slowed production to a halt, waiting for products to cool was not an option and there was no guarantee outgassing would not still occur after leaving the warehouse. As you can see, outgassing has heavily impacted this label material. The heat has forced the volatile elements from the plastic and it has risen to the surface through the label's adhesive.  So what's the solution? Our gas-permeable labels corrected a production problem being experienced by a large production line and supplier. Labels are often a small cog in a large machine, but if this small cog breaks down, the machine breaks down. Labelling is often one of those parts of production left to the last minute, or forgotten about entirely. We are always aiming to change the thought process around labelling because it's a more important piece of the puzzle than you might originally think. If you have any questions, or you are currently experiencing issues with outgassing, or you are looking to label an application where outgassing might be a problem, give us a call, freephone 0800 023 9277 or drop us an email at: Twitter / LinkedIn

  • Kluber Lubrication - Oil Resistant Label Case Study

    OIL RESISTANT LABELS - COLOUR CODED METALLIC POLYESTER LABELS FOR KLUBER Innovative speciality lubricants - Kluber Lubrication With its headquarters in Munich, Kluber has expanded globally to offer precisely tailored speciality lubricants and know-how for every industry and application. We are delighted to be working with Kluber to provide durable labels to meet their demands. Kluber was looking for a range of metallised, industrial-grade colour-coded labels to be applied to food-based industrial conveyor belts. The Label Application: The labels would need to feature multiple colours and a variety of symbols to represent the label's application and its associated lubricant. Additionally, it would need to be oil-resistant, since lubricants would be used regularly during the maintenance of the conveyor belts where the label may come into contact with oil and lubricants. Due to their environment, the labels would need to be easily detectable should they somehow accidentally contaminate food production. After exploring these requirements with Kluber, we wanted to develop a range of labels that would exceed their expectations. The Label Solution: The recommended labelling material was RoMark’s RML-4295, which is a durable ‘matt’ metallic polyester, featuring a high-performance solvent acrylic ‘high-tack’ adhesive. The labels text would be printed in 2 colours with the label's colour panel matching their respective ‘colour codes’ (8 colours in total), with graphics imprinted on the labels in black, silver or white using abrasion/chemical-resistant printing inks. The durable matt metallic polyester makes up the base of the label, providing extreme durability in the face of abrasion, oil and lubricants. The metallic nature of the label ensures it is detectable by metal detectors throughout the conveyor system while the high-tack adhesive means it won't come off, even after contact with heavy oils and lubricants. Closing: Kluber Lubrication is a powerhouse in the industrial sector and we are delighted to be providing them with bespoke, durable labels of matching calibre. You can check out another case study here, where we cover our industrial-grade Hydraulic Valve labels made for Eaton (Danfoss Power).

  • Choosing the right durable label for your product(s).

    5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING YOUR LABELLING SOLUTION. As a manufacturer and supplier of durable labels, we can help guide you in choosing the perfect label for the job. We’ve supplied thousands of unique labels over the years but when it comes to creating your perfect label, there are five main points to consider when maximising the label’s potential. 1. DURABLE LABEL APPLICATION What will the label be applied to and what environment will the label need to survive in once applied? Will the labels need to be applied manually, or will they be applied by a label applicator? Will the label be in colour, or black and white? Does the label require barcode or QR tracking? Beginning with the application naturally helps define the other characteristics of the label. Some examples of durable label applications include: Durable ATEX labels for pumps and valves. Durable rating labels for rechargeable battery packs. QR Code Identification labels for hydraulic hose pipes. EXPOSURE Consider the daily life of the application and potential obstacles a label will need to overcome. Will the product be exposed to an extreme environment? High or low temperatures? Abrasion? Is the product going to be handled by an end consumer? Is there a risk of chemical exposure? Will the product be subject to the elements? There is a label to reliably tackle any situation. Durable labels are robust and made with a variety of advanced synthetic materials, the construction will determine the performance of the label and can be made bespoke for your needs. This is where we come in. With a good understanding of your labels application, we can suggest the materials and build you the perfect label. SURFACE AND ADHESIVE Part of a labels construction is the adhesive. The correct adhesive will determine the strength of the bond your label has with the surface of its intended application. Think about the surface your label will be applied to. Is it smooth, rough, flat or curved? Metal or plastic? Knowing the surface and choosing the right adhesive for the surface shape and type is imperative as these will all have a great effect on your label's ability to bond and persist. 2. LONGEVITY Durable Labels can last years. Measures can be taken to alter the lifespan of your label, so consider how long you need the label to survive, or whether this label needs to be removed or altered at some point during its application. 3. REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS Some labels must meet strict regulatory requirements to be suitable for their intended application. Safety and sustainability regulators UL (Underwriters Laboratories) are a great example of a regulatory standard that must sometimes be met. Different industries will often require their labels to meet different specifications and this will influence the construction of the label. 4. PRINT Now that we have determined the application and materials, how much control is required over the print? While Romark can fully supply you with your labelling requirements pre-printed, sometimes in-house printing is a necessity too. For example, if your labels require variable data input, a supply of pre-printed or blank high-performance labels along with a suitable in-house printer may be a solution. This is particularly true when supplying durable labels to laboratories, who will often need to input and print patient or sample data on-site. The most common forms of in-house print each with its pros and cons are Thermal Transfer, Direct Thermal, Laser or Inkjet. Consider the type of information you will be printing, will it be full-coloured or black and white? We can then supply the perfect printing solution to work with your label's material. 5. VOLUME With your label ready for production, consider the number of labels you use regularly throughout the day, week, month or year when deciding on the volume of labels you require. If you’re unsure, don’t panic. As experienced suppliers of durable labels, fast lead times are one of our specialities. Storing your labels is also a consideration and another benefit we can offer customers. We can store your labels and supply them when they’re needed! We hope this guide has helped you determine the right labelling solution for your needs. We are experts when it comes to durable labelling – if you have any questions or you are ready to take your labelling to the next level, give us a call, freephone 0800 023 9277 or drop us an email.

  • Synthetic Labels vs Metal Plates

    The Power of Durable Synthetic Labels In a world driven by rapid technological advancements, the choice of labeling materials and products plays a pivotal role in various industries. From manufacturing and logistics to retail and healthcare, the labeling of products, assets, and equipment is an essential aspect of operations. Traditionally, metal plates have been the go-to durable labelling choice for decades, but synthetic labels have been quietly providing a far better alternative for a long time. Time Is Money Metal plates have long been associated with durability and strength, but the process of etching information onto them can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Etching involves chemical treatments or laser processes that can take a considerable amount of time, slowing down production lines and delaying crucial tasks. In contrast, synthetic labels offer a swift solution. With advancements in printing technology, information can be directly printed onto these labels in a matter of seconds. This quick application process translates to increased efficiency, allowing businesses to focus on their core activities. Adapting to Change One of the major downsides of metal plates is the time-consuming nature of their preparation. Attaching metal plates often involves riveting, welding, or using adhesives, which can be a labor-intensive and complex process. In contrast, synthetic labels come with a permanent adhesive backing that can be applied effortlessly. This not only saves time but also reduces the need for specialized labor and equipment. With synthetic labels, adapting to changes in labeling requirements becomes a breeze, as labels can be quickly printed and applied as needed. Barcode Utility The modern business landscape relies heavily on accurate data collection and tracking. Barcodes, QR codes, and serial numbers are essential for efficient inventory management, asset tracking, and supply chain optimization. However, metal plates fall short in this aspect. The process of etching intricate barcodes onto metal surfaces can result in errors and decreased scanning efficiency. In contrast, synthetic labels are designed for compatibility with various printing technologies, ensuring crisp and clear barcode reproduction. This enables seamless integration into automated systems, enhancing overall operational efficiency. The Cost Factor While metal plates may have been the traditional choice, they come with a hefty price tag. The time and resources required for etching, preparation, and installation contribute to higher costs. Synthetic labels, on the other hand, offer a cost-effective solution. The streamlined production process and ease of application translate to reduced labor costs and minimal material wastage. Additionally, the versatility of synthetic labels means they can be customized in various sizes and shapes, minimizing waste further. Bespoke Label Design One of the standout advantages of synthetic labels is their unmatched versatility. They can be produced in an array of colors, sizes, and shapes to suit specific branding requirements or industry standards. Logos, branding elements, and even intricate designs can be incorporated into the labels, adding a touch of personalization to products and assets. This level of customization is practically unattainable with metal plates, which are limited by their rigid nature. To Conclude In conclusion, the era of relying solely on metal plates for durable labeling is giving way to a new era of efficiency, adaptability, and cost-effectiveness with synthetic permanent adhesive-based labels. These labels eliminate the time-consuming processes of etching and preparation associated with metal plates, while also allowing for precise barcode printing and reducing overall costs. The ability to quickly adapt to changes, the ease of customization, and the seamless integration into automated systems make synthetic labels the clear choice for modern businesses aiming to streamline their operations and enhance their overall productivity.

  • Synthetic Rating Plates and The Rising Cost of Metal

    The RISING Cost of Metal Rating Plates Are durable, synthetic labels a better choice? Metal Rating Plates VS Durable Synthetic Labels Research has shown that a typical 50mm x 25mm aluminium metal rating plates could cost you 70% more than its synthetic counterpart, and prices of raw materials are rising everywhere. According to this article Aluminium and Stainless Steel prices have risen dramatically this year alone. These make up the bulk of materials used in metal rating plate production. Supply chain issues and current world events have only compounded the problem, in some circumstances increasing steel prices by 50%. For decades, metal rating plates have been the go-to method for industrial labelling. But over the years, demand for more sophisticated labelling has increased as technology has evolved. Industrial environments and workflows have become more efficient and standards more stringent which means new requirements need to be met. That's not to say metal plates are completely outmoded. Some businesses still use them for a few reasons: The subsurface printing is extremely durable. Some industries still demand them. It can be difficult to remove a metal plate once it is riveted or screwed on. Resilience to extreme temperatures. But what if durable, synthetic labels could do the same and more? Many businesses have yet to realize the potential of synthetic labelling. LABELS WITH BENEFITS Cost-saving isn't the only reason you should consider switching to durable labels. Due to their synthetic nature, durable labels come with a host of benefits absent from metallic plates. The extra utility that comes with labels alone, such as the ability to store information inside barcodes, is unquestionably one of their biggest advantages. Due to the imprecise nature of metal plate etching, it simply isn't possible to 'imprint' a scannable barcode into metallic material. Durable labels are quicker to manufacture - which means shorter supply lead times. They are faster to produce and apply - no engraving, etching, drilling or riveting is required. They can be imprinted in the workplace - using a thermal transfer printer, information can be printed on the labels in-house, including rating information, barcodes and serial numbers. They can be printed in multiple colours - providing the option for colour coding or superior branding. Durability - in most circumstances, synthetic labels can match or even surpass the durability of metal plates. Cost - between 50-70% savings on your industrial labelling. In Conclusion Durable labels are versatile and can be supplied blank or pre-printed in any shape or size, giving you ultimate control over your labelling. With the addition of company branding, logo and colours, durable labels can also improve the overall aesthetic of your product while providing important information. But there's a lot to consider when it comes to the right label for the right job. There are very few examples where metal plates are a better choice but we would never suggest a synthetic label if we truly believed it would be unsuitable for your application. We always advise speaking to an expert first. If you have any questions or you are ready to take your labelling to the next level, give us a call, freephone 0800 023 9277 or send us an email.

  • Get more from your durable labels and printer

    GET MORE FROM YOUR DURABLE LABELS AND PRINTER During work hours, we're only a phone call away to provide help and support. However, before the big Christmas break, we wanted to share a small collection of tips that will help you get the most out of your durable labels and in-house printers. STORING YOUR LABELS: In order to preserve the life of your durable label adhesive and maximize effectiveness during the application, labels should be ideally stored in a cool dry atmosphere between 17ºC to 21ºC. If not, the adhesive can become dry, brittle or cured before it is ready to be applied. This can render it ineffective or incompatible for its intended purpose. We always deliver our labels inside a polythene bag where the labels should remain until they are ready to be used. This helps prevent contamination in the form of dust or fingerprints during storage and transport. Our labels are also marked with a storage 'life expectancy', which you will find on one of our core labels. FORMING A STRONG BOND: Depending on the adhesive used in your durable label, it can take up to 72 hours for the permanent adhesive to fully bond with its intended application/surface. Once you have applied the label, allow this time for your label to achieve full bond before attempting to remove or 'test' the strength of your label. Providing the label has not been contaminated before or during the bonding process, after these 72 hours, you will have a true representation of the label's adhesive capabilities. Not all adhesives are made equal, some adhesives are designed for rough/textured surfaces, while others bond better to smooth surfaces. There isn't a "one size fits all", our labels are bespoke and constructed for their intended application for maximum performance. PRINTER SETTINGS - HEAT AND SPEED: When supplying in-house printers for our customers, we are sometimes asked which settings yield the best results. This can vary depending on the printer, material of the label and ribbon but generally, when it comes to the heat and speed of thermal transfer printing, it is always best to print on the lowest speed and a mid to high darkness setting, for maximum quality. You can find the best result by starting high on the speed and low on the darkness, slowly tweaking to find the optimal settings by lowering and raising both options until you achieve the desired print quality. PRINTER CALIBRATION: You should always ensure the printer is calibrated before you begin to print onto your labels. Failing to calibrate first will result in a misaligned print, causing label wastage. Most printers will have an option to calibrate the printer once you have set up your ribbon and sensor. Run the calibration and allow the printer to align itself. It will run through multiple labels that you can pull back through the printer once it has adequately calibrated. We hope this short guide has helped with your durable label usage. If you have any questions, give us a call, freephone 0800 023 9277 or drop us an email. Our experts will be more than happy to help.
