Instructions for Transporting, Storing and Processing Self-Adhesive Labels and Functional Parts

Transportation and Storage

  • Protect from exposure to sunlight and heat (e.g. radiators).
  • Store the label rolls in the PE bag or shrink wrap of the original packaging in a cool and dry place (optimal conditions: 64 °F ±9 °F / 18 °C ±5 °C, 40-60 % relative humidity) up to the time of processing.
  • Stack the label rolls on top of each other, lying flat and centered.
  • Prevent external pressure (e.g. a tight box).

Processing of Labels

General Information on Label Dispensing

  • An acute angle of the dispensing edge improves dispensing (stripping) performance.
  • Keep strip plate burr-free.
  • Apply contact pressure to labels after application to ensure adhesion.
  • Keep all movable elements of the web/tape guide running smoothly by regular cleaning.
  • Keep optical and mechanical scanning elements clean and dust-free.
  • Do not subsequently tighten the label rolls – either manually or inside the printing or dispensing system.

When Using Thermal Transfer Printers

  • Regularly remove dust from the inside of the printer when changing rolls.
  • Do not touch the printing areas when changing rolls; it is best to just touch the beginning of the roll, possibly wearing gloves.

Specifically for RFID Products

  • Do not bend the ((rfid)) labels.
  • Avoid heavy contact pressure and mechanical impact (shocks).
  • Do not throw the rolls and pack in special cardboard boxes or use sufficient cushioning/padding material.
  • Protect from external influences such as electrostatic discharge (+/- 2kV HBM), alternating magnetic fields, microwaves or gamma rays.

Special Instructions for Adhesives with Higher Flow Rates

  • For extended periods of intermediate storage during processing, store the material in cool boxes (< 64 °F / 18 °C).
  • Tip: Wrap the printer feeding shafts in silicone paper to avoid possible deposits of adhesive particles. However, do not use silicone spray under any circumstances.
