Pressure Sensitive - Self Adhesive Label Applicators
Pre-glued labels are supplied on a reel of release paper or film. They require no water to make the adhesive stick.
By far the most popular form of label applicator they have replaced many traditional uses of wet glue application. The advantages are that there is no liquid glue or heat required in the process and the label can be made from materials other than paper. The labels can be pre-cut into complex shapes on the reel by means of a die-cutter and stored on the reel until required, with minimal risk of damage. This method of application enables labels to be applied at medium/high speed to soft packages as well as rigid containers and where the product could be damaged by water or heat.
