Polyester Hospital Labels for Positive Patient Identification
Patient Identification Labels
Polyester labels consist of a kind of polymer that hospitals can use to make excellent, durable polyester labels. Some products are exposed to harsh conditions, severely cold or extremely hot temperatures, and rough handling during laboratories and hospitals procedures. This is when labels are needed that will withstand all different kids of conditions, and such labels usually cannot be made out of paper. Polyester labels are resistant to scuffing, tearing, abrasion, high heat, low temps, sunlight, chemical solvents, water, controlled shrinkage and can last a long time. Many labels have a limited life-span, usually up to several months, after which they fade away, peel off, get torn, ect. Durable polyester labels can last many years.
When deciding on a label, the most important factors are the conditions labels will be exposed to and the cost of their production. When selecting a polyester label for your hospital, you should be well aware of conditions such as extreme temperatures, sunlight, moisture rough handling, image quality, surfaces, and the length of time the label needs to exists.
Polyester Label Adhesives
Hospital use polyester labels most often because they are made with a permanent acrylic, self-pressure, adhesive strong bonding substance. These labels aggressively adhere to their surfaces and cannot be taken off. These permanent labels will adhere to all kinds of surfaces.
Color Labels and Printers.
Polyester Labels are usually white, though they can be any color you desire (depending on what your printer offers). Printing options for polyester labels often determines the level of the label's durability. Thermal transfer printers, for example, are good for achieving excellent, smudge-free printed images and are the best solution for barcode labels. Laser printing ensures smooth, glossy surfaces and excellent ink performance. Inkjet printing is perfect for pressure-sensitive adhesive graphics. When deciding on a polyester label color, it is best to consult one of our experts on the most convenient option for that particular application.
