Demand for cable labelling in cabinets, workstations and offices is increasing – and there is also a demand in the automotive segment. Avery Dennison now offers a portfolio of 13 cable label materials to match almost every application requirement.
Standard labelling materials are not well suited to durables applications of this kind. A cable label has to cope with very small diameters and minimize ‘butterflying’, where a stiff face material makes a label lift. Print quality must be good, and applications often also demand UL recognition or flame retarding properties.
Avery Dennison cable label materials minimizes ‘butterflying’ by combining a flexible film with a high cohesion, high shear adhesive. Options include PET, PVC and Polyolefine films. There are highly flexible white materials for flag labels, and transparent materials for wrap-around labels.
Label converters can select materials that are UL-recognised, even specifically for use on cables and wires (UL 817 and UL 2238). Most materials are flame retardant (FMVSS302), and offer good resistance to UV light.
The service levels have been designed to enable upscaling and small labelling projects; some of the materials are available at a minimum order quantity of only 100 m².
