The stickiness of adhesive labels maintains stability

2023.06.13

Self adhesive labels are a common type of sticker, commonly used in product packaging, logistics transportation, supermarket identification, and other occasions. It has the advantages of being easy to print, easy to paste, and aesthetically pleasing, but it is also susceptible to factors such as environmental temperature, humidity, and sunlight during use, leading to a decrease in stickiness or failure. So, how to maintain the stickiness of self-adhesive labels and ensure their long-term stability? Here are a few methods to introduce.

How can the stickiness of self-adhesive labels maintain stability for a longer period of time?

1. Choose suitable materials

Different adhesive label materials have different characteristics in maintaining stickiness. Usually, some materials with lower costs may not have long-lasting stickiness, so when choosing self-adhesive labels, higher quality sticker materials can be considered and selected based on actual usage scenarios. For example, on products that require long-term adhesion, it is recommended to use strong adhesive labels to ensure that they can tightly adhere to the surface.

2. Pay attention to storage conditions

During the storage process, it is also necessary to pay attention to some details of the adhesive label to avoid loss of adhesion or failure. It is recommended to store it in a dry, ventilated, and away from direct sunlight. Do not expose it to moisture, high temperatures, or low temperatures for extended periods of time. At the same time, attention should also be paid to avoiding contact with water and greasy substances during use.

3. Ensure surface cleanliness

One of the main reasons for the decrease or failure of stickiness of self-adhesive labels is that they adhere to foreign objects such as dust and oil. Therefore, before labeling, it is important to first ensure that the surface of the object being labeled is clean and tidy, and to clean it with detergent or cleaning solution. This can effectively enhance the stickiness of the label and ensure that the label can maintain stability for a long time.

4. Scientific construction

When labeling, scientific construction is also necessary to properly handle the air and moisture between the label and the object being labeled to ensure that the label can fit more tightly. A common method is the "flattening method", which involves placing the label flat on the object being adhered to, then gently pressing the label to make it come into contact with the object, and then applying force to flatten the entire label to make it fully fit.

In summary, maintaining the adhesive stability of self-adhesive labels requires attention to multiple aspects such as material selection, storage conditions, surface cleaning, and construction methods. Only by putting sufficient effort into these details can we ensure that the label maintains good adhesion and does not fall off during use.
