“Our innovative hybrid adhesive is designed to resist moisture and frost build-up while maintaining a permanent bond to metal warehouse racking,” says Gregg Schiltz, ID Label’s chief operating officer. “They can be applied at temperatures as low as minus 20 Fahrenheit. This means warehouse managers don’t have to disrupt operations by raising temperatures or moving inventory to install them.”
Once applied, Arctic Xtreme labels will maintain a permanent bond to metal warehouse racking at service temperatures as low as -65 Fahrenheit. “We’re confident these are the highest performing freezer labels available,” Schiltz adds.
ID Label manufactures Arctic Xtreme labels on some of the industry’s most advanced digital inkjet presses. They’re commonly produced with a durable laminate coating to withstand daily warehouse bumps and knocks and can include company logos and other colorful graphics.
The market for cold storage warehouses is expected to reach nearly $30 billion by 2021, up from an estimated $22 billion in 2019. Demand is being fueled in part by rapid growth in online grocery shopping, which is expected to account for 13% of total grocery sales by 2022.
“We provide a range of solutions for cold storage environments, including magnet-backed labels,” Schiltz explains. “Many of our customers have asked us for a permanent-adhesive solution with a lower application temperature. We designed Arctic Xtreme with that in mind.”
