Bar-code labels are used in various industries where scanability and adhesion requirements can greatly differ. Some bar-code labels need to be applied in cold outdoor environments where sub-zero conditions play a major factor. Some are applied to less than smooth surfaces that are continuously subjected to physical mishandling in industrial settings. Some bar-code labels need to withstand abrasive chemicals and acids while wrapped around small mandrels (test-tube) in lab applications. Variables such as label face-stock combined with specifically designed adhesive and process in which the bar-code is imaged is how we tailor solutions for each and everyone of these sorts of applications.
