Have you ever been frustrated by labels that won’t stay stuck onto your products, shelves, crates, sacks, or other surfaces? Certain label applications require labels with a strong adhesive that can handle dust and debris, water and moisture, and cold temperatures.
These label applications can be classified as:
-Cold food packaging
-Dusty and greasy applications
For example, if you are labeling frozen desserts or refrigerated foods, the packaging contents may be undergoing temperature changes during labeling, and then the items will be refrigerated or frozen. Your labels need to be able to withstand changing and cold temperatures.
Likewise, items subject to moisture such as industrial filters, pipes, and agricultural items fall under the wet applications category. Their labels must be able to handle wet conditions, whether incidental or by design.
Finally, items like bird seed, pet food, produce crates, parts bins, inventory labels, metal rack labels, horticultural items, wax corrugate, and even candles often become dusty or greasy due to product filling, overflows, warehouse conditions, weather conditions, and other environmental factors. Their labels need to remain affixed despite the dust, debris, or grease.

Our BC-20 glossy BOPP labels have a glossy, biaxially oriented polypropylene label that’s highly durable on its own. When paired with the BC-20 adhesive, these become extremely strong, durable labels that stay stuck to cold, dusty, greasy, and wet items. DuraFast BC-20 glossy BOPP labels are available for pigment-based color label printers in a variety of shapes and sizes.
