3M™ Health Care Label Materials are designed for specific demands in healthcare device labeling. Polypropylene, polyolefin and coated paper facestocks are durable and versatile for challenging applications such as bottles and blood bags. A range of adhesives makes for reliable performance without flagging on small diameter plastic vials, in autoclaves and where tamper evidence is a main concern.
Excellent for adherence to a range of HSE and LSE surfaces including plastic vials, 3M™ Health Care Label Materials are designed for added efficiency and reliability in health care settings. Facestocks including polyolefin, polypropylene and a range of coated papers deliver durability, destructibility for tamper-evident applications and conformability even around small diameters. Many of these label materials are designed to withstand autoclaving after application. Adhesives are available to meet general-purpose healthcare device labeling as well as specific needs including resistance to flagging, adherence to polypropylene and polyethylene, fluid resistance and corrosion prevention. A selection of liners includes polyester film, polypropylene laminated to kraft paper, supercalendered kraft and glassine for excellent die cutting and consistent label production. Recommended Applications Small diameter vials and single unit dose injectables Pharmaceutical labeling and packaging Glass and HDPE Barcode labels and rating plates Property identification and asset labeling Thermal transfer labels Variable information printing (VIP) Brand and instruction labels Caution warning labels 3M™ Health Care Label Materials are designed for narrow web presses using flexographic, UV letterpress, thermal transfer, screen or gravure printing processes.
