3M™ Dot Matrix Label Materials are designed specifically for computer imprinting applications, including dot matrix/impact. Topcoated facestocks from polyester to semi-rigid vinyl are excellent for variable information and hand writeability. A range of 3M adhesives suits labelling applications from low-temp environments and acid-resistant battery labels to decorative films and overlaminations.
For a quick stick adhesive that’s hand writeable and receptive to dot matrix printing, try 3M™ Dot Matrix Label Material 7880. Our 58 micron 7880 has a unique top coat for traditional dot matrix printing, but delivers abrasion resistance in bar code applications. The matt topcoat resists degradation from scuffing, chemicals, moisture and wide temperature fluctuations. The adhesive bonds well to a wide variety of substrates, including low surface energy plastics. It provides high initial adhesion with high tack and ultimate peel. This label material is UL recognised.
