Applications and Benefits include
Variable information printing:
These materials allow for variable information printing which makes it ideal for tag or ticket applications in the retail and leisure markets e.g. transportation tickets, theme park admission tickets and ski passes.
Direct food contact:
Syntag 2651 has been tested as being suitable for food contact applications were the food is peeled, shelled or washed before consumption.
One of the main uses of our Ditag material is for fruit bag tags. Due to the durable nature of this material, the bag-tag doubles as a "handle" to carry the product.
Printable with a wide variety of print technologies:
Variable information can be applied by a wide variety of direct thermal printers. The thermal face accepts pre-print from U.V. and water based print process. With aqueous flexo inks we strongly recommend the addition of heat additive, particularly when thermal printing through pre-inked regions. The reverse side of the tag can also be printed using traditional printing method.
