LabelTac® Die Cut Technical Data Sheet

Last updated date: 05/06/2021


LabelTac Die-cut labels are pre-printed high resistance labels produced from a 3.0 mil polymeric gloss white calendered vinyl coated with a clear acrylic high-tack permanent adhesive (HTAP) on a 55# liner. The HTAP adhesive can be adhered to a variety of substrates such as metals, painted metals, smooth wood, plywood, primed MDO board and vinyl. It also works well on ABS, styrene, polyester, polycarbonate and smooth polyolefins.
