Innovative Flame Retardant Labels – Tedlar Replacement

polyimide kapton flame retardant labelsWhen manufacturers of electronic devices and appliances need flame retardant labels to identify their products, they normally use labels made of Tedlar (polyvinyl fluoride) or Kapton (polyimide).  However, Tedlar has been in short supply, and Kapton is often costly, especially when compared to polyester materials commonly used for product identification labels.

Winco ID now offers labels made from our TT 705, 2 mil white polyester label material. This material is recognized by Underwriters Laboratories to meet the VTM-1 level of flame retardants within the UL94 standard and provides a cost-effective alternative to Tedlar and Kapton labels for many applications.

Unlike common polyester labels that can burn rapidly and propagate a flame in electronic equipment and appliances, Winco ID’s TT 705 labels provide significant self-extinguishing performance to meet a growing demand for labels to comply with flame retardant requirements.

The TT 705 labels use a high performance semi-gloss white topcoat specifically designed for thermal transfer printing, so when matched with the proper ribbons, the images will withstand harsh chemicals and solvents typically used in electronic manufacturing processes.  The high temperature acrylic adhesive is well suited for applying to a variety of surfaces.  Winco ID can manufacture these labels in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The TT 705 labels also comply with the requirements of RoHS, REACH, and are certified to be halogen free to the IEC 61249-2-21 levels.

For more information or to learn how you can use this new innovative Tedlar alternative in your electronic devices, batteries, or other equipment or appliances, please contact me at (603) 598-1553 x257 or email john@labelingnews.com.
