NAStar announces direct thermal linerless material

July 21, 2014

The new SWDTX - T2 features printable release, allowing the labels to be color-coded or printed on both the face and adhesive side.

NAStar Inc. has introduced two direct thermal products to its Linerless Temporary Adhesive offerings. They are available with both full gum and pattern-coated adhesives.

SWDTX - T2 features a repositionable adhesive and a printable food-grade non-silicone release. The printable release allows the labels to be color-coded or printed flexo on both the face and adhesive side.

SWDTZ - T1055 has temporary adhesive and a traditional silicone release. Designed to be aggressive and versatile, T1055 Temporary Adhesive is "temporarily permanent" and "permanently removable" from a wide range of surfaces.

Linerless labels allow for twice as many labels per roll while reducing downtime and labor costs for end users. Also, avoiding the slippery silicone liner makes for safer work environments while avoiding the need to manage disposal of a non-recyclable liner. When coated with a discontinuous cross web “DOT” Adhesive pattern, the material layout allows for printers to cut without coming in contact with the adhesive.

The Environmentally friendly product includes the Repulpable T2 Temporary Adhesive, according to TAPPI UM213, allowing the material to be recycled. Markets and applications include warehousing and distribution, retail point of sale, food safety, industrial, and healthcare.
