Polyonics launches heat-resistant label materials

February 1, 2021  By PrintAction Staff

Polyonics has launched HIGHdegree, a new line of label materials designed to withstand the demands of metal processing and ensure the accurate tracking and identification of hot metals through the manufacturing process.

The new line is rated up to 1,292 degrees Fahrenheit, or 700 degrees Celsius. Labels and tags can be applied directly to or hung from coils, rolls, bars, sheets, rebar, tubes or wire bundles.

Polyimide and aluminum label material feature non-yellowing polymer or silicone print surfaces suitable for thermal transfer printing. They also feature high-temperature acrylic or ultra-high temperature silicone pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) so they stay affixed from the furnace through the delivery of completed goods to customers.

“Over the years, we found that our label and tag materials can withstand the punishing demands of metal processing,” said Jim Clemente, president and CEO of Polyonics. “So, we are making a significant investment in R&D and strategically focusing on innovations for the metals processing market, which represents a significant growth area for us.”

The tag materials can be used as alternatives to riveted plats, chalk or crayons for tracking hot metals in foundries. They provide high tear resistance, so there is not expected to be unintended removal during storage or delivery.
