With more than 100 colors and tape sizes, K-Sun LABELShop® tapes are made of a durable polyester base with an industrial-grade acrylic adhesive and shrink tube is made from an industrial-grade polyolefin base material.
LABELShop® labeling tapes and shrink tube materials are all designed to be printed with the durable resin thermal transfer ribbon process for UV, scratch, fade, chemical and smear resistance. In addition, K-Sun printers’ thermal transfer process is ideal for bar code applications requiring scanning clarity. All tapes have been tested to withstand extreme temperatures (0 F – 302 F/150 C), outdoor conditions (10-year life in direct sunlight), abrasion and pressure. K-Sun also carries iron-on fabric labels and self-laminating overwrap for wire/cable application.
Tapes are flexible for curved surface labeling, and adhesive can adhere to itself for wire tabbing/flagging. Cartridges are recyclable through K-Sun, and a portion of the cartridge housing is made from recycled plastic. The tapes comply with ANSI/TIA/EIA-606A standards and shrink tube materials complies with UL 224, mil-w-23053/5 class 1 and 3 and mil-IR 46846 type V ratings.
