Technicote Launches New Drum Label Product Line

Technicote is pleased to introduce a new selection of pressure sensitive label products recommended for chemical drum & barrel applications. Featured on the company’s new DL400 adhesive, these materials are designed to withstand harsh weather and environments such as extreme heat, brutal cold, high moisture, dangerous chemicals, UV light and solvents. Because these labels will be used to identify the hazardous contents within the drum, as well as pictograms to illustrate warnings and instructions, the label must retain its permanence and legibility upon being exposed to these conditions.

Technicote’s drum label product line includes three high strength label face stocks that when combined with DL400 emulsion acrylic adhesive is the optimum solution for durable labeling requirements.

• 2 mil White TC Polyester is a glossy white top-coated film with outstanding outdoor durability, chemical and weather resistance. This film is compatible with water-based flexo, UV flexo, and thermal transfer print methods.

• 4 mil Flexible White NTC Vinyl is a smooth, matte white, non –top-coated film with polymeric plasticizers, formulated to provide high durability, as well as chemical and moisture resistance. Excellent outdoor durability. Requires converter applied top-coat or ink recommended by ink supplier prior to printing this NTC film.

• 3.5 mil White Techni-Flex Polyolefin is a matte white label film that offers excellent moisture resistance, chemical resistance, smudge resistance, dimensional stability and squeezability. .

DL400 is an aggressive emulsion acrylic adhesive that has been specifically formulated for use in durable label applications such as chemical & barrel drums, lawn & garden equipment and household & commercial appliances. This adhesive offers outstanding adhesion to painted steel drums, fiber drums and a variety of plastic drums under high moisture conditions, as well as direct exposure to chemicals, solvents and UV rays.
