Self adhesive Thermal  labels (otherwise known as pressure sensitive labels) are made by printing onto a construction of 3 layers.

  • A release liner (otherwise known as the backing paper)
  • A layer of adhesive
  • The face material.

Self adhesive label release liner

The release liner is commonly made of paper and is silicone coated on 1 side (occasionally 2) to enable the label to be removed cleanly from the liner. IncreaOLOsingly, especially for some high volume applications where automated applicator machines are used to apply labels at high speed,  plastics are used as a release liner as they do not tear and break as easily as paper.

Thermal label: Thermal labels are one of the many types of labels that are used in daily life. These labels are used to label all kinds of things – starting from clothes to furniture to fruits to vegetables to electronic gadget to automobiles to industrial equipments etc. The different kinds of labels are used in different kinds of places. For example, it would be unwise to use a thermal label for an industrial product. In such cases, rivets are generally used to screw the label in place. Thermal labels can be used in a variety of places as well. They can be used in small or hand held equipments, for example. They can be used in those places where there can be a certain level of heat. But this too will depend on what kind of thermal label is being used.
