Avery Dennison launched at Labelexpo a new tire labeling range, which includes tread labeling materials and thermal transfer vulcanization labels designed to perform optimally in applications that pose the most difficult dispensing challenges. Avery Dennison’s new PP TYRE 55 / 60 Top White products use a special feature of the polypropylene film that is designed to resist migration of low molecular-weight components and carbon black from the tire surface. This allows the label to stay on the tire and avoids curling away over time, which is a common problem in the industry. Avery Dennison’s new TT vulcanization labels, also introduced at Labelexpo, address the increasing need for labels that can be bar code-printed as brands want to serialize their tires for tracking and safety reasons. This product features TS8017, a rubber-based adhesive that prints well in the thermal transfer (TT) process and has good heat/abrasion resistance.
