Raw Material Change Notification – Low Temperature Irreversible Labels Adhesive

September 30, 2016

 Due to improvements made by our adhesive supplier with the release liner the following change notification has been implemented on our low temperature range of irreversible temperature labels switching from Avery FT7025 to FT7026 adhesive.

 The improvement is only to the release liner and the carrier and adhesive on both sides of the adhesive tape will remain the same. Main points are:

 1)    White paper in the center of the release liner is changing to a higher quality white paper

 2)    Back of the release liner will be printed with Avery logo. This only affects the back of the release liner

 3)    The PE and silicone release coating facing the label will remain the same

 The changes will have no effect on the working performance of the irreversible temperature labels as the adhesive and carrier is exactly the same. However, improvements should be seen with the cut of the labels (reducing of cuts into the release liner) and also the printed side of the release liner has less static which aids handling and cleanliness.
