Using Polycarbonate Laminate For: Lexan™ Labels, Durable Nameplates
As a brand owner, the last thing you want is for your nameplate or overlay to deteriorate during the product lifecycle. Lexan™ Labels provide a means for a lasting brand image in difficult applications, along with general purpose decals.
Functional & Attractive.
Lexan™ polycarbonate laminate is a preferred material when it comes to durable nameplate and label applications. Lexan™ Nameplate Labels are the perfect fit for applications that take a lot of wear and tear due to extreme temperatures & harsh weather conditions making them both functional & attractive.
Advantages of Lexan™Labels
Lexan™ polycarbonate nameplates provide chemical and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for a variety of applications. TLP can custom pair polycarbonate overlaminate with ultra-aggressive adhesive labeling solutions for powder coat and rough surfaces. The material offers exceptional resistance to scratches, scuffs, and fingerprints.
Beyond the durability and performance characteristics of the product, Lexan™ labels provide a unique, decorative look for any product branding labels. With a variety of finishes available (gloss, matte, velvet) and a variety of mil thicknesses, using a polycarbonate overlaminate can provide your product label a textured, velvet finish or a crisp, glossy shine.
Ideal Markets & Applications:
Lexan™ labels made of polycarbonate laminate are perfect for applications such as riding mowers or outdoor power equipment where branding marks and warning labels must uphold their graphics.
TLP specializes in custom Lexan™ labels for outdoor power equipment, appliances, cars, trucks and other vehicles, along with heavy and light equipment applications.
Polycarbonate laminate can also be considered for Lexan Labels & nameplates that must:
- Meet ANSI and other regulatory requirements
- Survive extreme temperatures and harsh climates
- Endure submersion in water
- Survive oily, dirty or chemically abrasive environment
ASK THE ENGINEER
Lexan Labels / Polycarbonate Laminate
Why would I need to use a Polycarbonate / Lexan Label instead of another material?
Polycarbonate labels are designed for highly abrasive environments. For example, high touch areas (ie: control panels) are ideal applications for polycarbonate. Polycarbonate labels can withstand high impact as well, where other materials may tear or fail.
Can Lexan labels stand up to a variety of temperatures and other environmental factors?
Yes, absolutely. TLP carries a number of different stock options that can withstand temperatures from negative 80C to 250C. When discussing your application, it is vital that you describe each environmental impact as this will guide us in material, adhesive and laminate selections.
Can TLP variable print on polycarbonate labels?
Yes. Whether a barcode or a serial number is needed, TLP can variable print on polycarbonate labels that pass ANSI and ISO requirements.
