REVLAR Waterproof Label Selection

Labels. We all use them for a wide variety of applications. Some are plain, some are elaborate and others are very formal. Whatever the type, they need to convey a message and they need to stick!

What Type of Waterproof Labels Do You Need?

How they need to stick determines what type of label you should select for your application:

  • Do they have to be waterproof or permanent?
  • Do you want to peel them off one item and place them on another?
  • Do they need to be strong enough to take a lot of handling?
  • Do they have to resist temperature or climate changes?

Let’s go through the available options now that you have an idea of the adhesive strength you need.

Permanent and Removable Waterproof Labels

Relyco’s waterproof labels come in both permanent and low-tack formats. They are available in white, frosted, matte or clear faces on an adhesive liner.

Being a REVLAR product, they are waterproof, tear-proof, impervious to heat and cold and can be printed in your laser printer.

Removable Labels

There are labels that are designed to be used in any setting that requires moveability.

If you need to use, move and reuse a label, then low-tack labels are your best bet; flexible, removable and repositionable.

The unique construction of these labels with a special adhesive on the back are designed to be removed cleanly from any surface: smooth, rough or hard.

Then there are the labels that have to be permanently affixed to a surface.
