Poly and Vinyl are the most commonly used materials for labels. Vinyl, otherwise known as polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, is a thermoplastic material, and so it can be reprocessed using heat. In respects to what we provide at Specialty Printing, we use a semi-flexible vinyl film coated with a permanent pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive and backed with a two-sided polycoated layflat release liner for use over sheets.
We also provide decals and labels made from Mylar (a registered trademark owned by Dupont Tejjin Films), that is essentially a generic term for polyester film or plastic sheet.
There are numerous applications using Poly, Vinyl and Mylar – if you are not certain of your exact needs, Specialty Printing will assess your needs to determine the appropriate label solution for you.
