Water-Resistant Labels on Rolls - Individually Printed
Water resistant labels are usually printed on a material called polypropylene (PP). It is a polymeric material (sometimes called a “vinyl label“) that does not absorb water. This is how the resistant effect is created.
These water-resistant labels are needed, among other things, because of certain filling and logistics processes. These include, for example, bottle sterilisation or filling. These labels are also suitable for use in extreme environments or for protection against moisture.
Please note: Our labels are not designed to remain submerged under water for extended periods of time or to be used in a salty marineenvironment.
Water-Resistant Labels on Paper?
That’s possible. Have your paper labels coated with a protective varnish to make them water-resistant. The paper absorbs the varnish and is thus sealed. This reduces the likelihood of the label absorbing too much water. Many paper labels that are printed in full colour and have a protective coating can handle refrigeration and logistics processes well. This opens up many possibilities when it comes to material selection and label design of your water-resistant labels.
With a film lamination you give your paper labels additional water-resistance. However, please note that a matt film lamination over a textured paper would completely cover its structure. This can cause air entrapment between the textured paper and the lamination, creating unsightly air bubbles.
Polymeric materials such as polypropylene are generally more suitable for water-resistant labels. They withstand both wet filling processes and cold processes without additional sealing.
Water and Ink - How Does that Work?
We print all custom labels digitally using HP Indigo 6800 technology. This is a commercial grade printing technology using electro-inks; these will not run under any circumstance. Nor will inks scratch away from the surface of the label when subjected to logistics processes. Therefore, digital printing is particularly well suited for producing water-resistant labels.
We recommend that you test a range of materials before ordering your water-resistant or any other labels, especially for your specific area of application. That’s why label.co.uk gives you the opportunity to order a free sample book with sample labels made from our standard materials. Test our materials and get your own impression of our printing quality. Order sample book now.
Our standard production time is five to seven working days. However, we know that businesses need their custom roll labels faster from time to time. Our express production ensures production within 48 hours (plus shipping time) for an additional charge. The prerequisite is that we have all the tools and materials needed for your labels in house and that your graphic data is already printable and error-free. Please note that we reserve the right to temporarily suspend express production in the event of very high workloads.
Do you need a test print before you place a label order for the total print run? We offer you different variations of proof printing. This way you can make sure that your water-resistant labels look as desired and that you are satisfied with the printing result. View offers now.
Printable data is an important part of the label printing process. For companies that do not have their own graphic designers or agencies, we offer the option of using our artwork services. We check your print data for technical errors depending on the kind of service you choose.
