Legible Labels For The Long Haul

A new acetone-resistant 76604 material helps ensure labels printed using Ricoh B110CU ribbons retain their legibility despite harsh environments.

The material resists repeated attacks from acetone, methylethylketone, and other aggressive solvents. The matte-white, self-adhesive polyester is coated with a print-receptive material. The labels adhere to parts with high and low-surface energies as well as those that are rough, powder coated, and thermolacquered.
