Product Announcement from Can-Do National Tape
- Topcoated for thermal transfer printing. Resin ribbons are recommended for optimum durability. The topcoat also provides improved ink anchorage for traditional forms of press printing.
- 3M label material 7816 55# densified kraft liner assures consistent die cutting.
- UL recognized (File MH16411) and CSA accepted (File 99316). See the UL and CSA listings for details.
For maximum bond strength, the surface should be clean and dry. Typical cleaning solvents are heptane and isopropyl alcohol.*
For best bonding conditions, application surface should be at room temperature or higher. Low temperature surfaces, below 50°F (10°C), can cause the adhesive to become so firm that it will not develop maximum contact with the substrate. Higher initial bonds can be achieved through increased rubdown pressure.
*When using solvents, read and follow the manufacturer's precautions and directions for use.
- Barcode labels and rating plates.
- Property identification and asset labeling.
- Warning, instruction, and service labels for durable goods.
- Nameplates and durable goods.
