Faller Packaging has developed freeze-friendly labels for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries that are suitable for use in low temperatures to ensure legible information during storage and transportation.

The labels are made from polypropylene (PP) film that can withstand temperatures ranging from -196° C to +120° C (-320 to 250 F). The adhesive on the labels is designed to be applied at room temperature, but will continue to adhere in extremely cold conditions.

The labels were tested in accordance with DIN ISO 3826 and approved for indirect contact with foodstuffs, as per FDA 175.105. The labels adhere to glass containers, plastic containers, steel plates and plastic plates, and can also be applied to narrow vials. They can be used in standard labeling machines, but can also be applied by hand.

“This makes Faller Packaging’s temperature-resistant labels ideal for labeling COVID-19 vaccines and sterile medications, as well as for a range of other applications, for example, in the field of cryogenics,” said the company in a statement. “Pharmaceutical manufacturers benefit from secure, durable labels which, among other things, enable reliable batch traceability and help avoid user errors. The labels can even be printed retroactively via thermal transfer. The material from which they are made also exhibits high levels of resistance against various chemicals.”
