100% compatible, pigmented polyolefin polymer developed by Polyfuze, applied onto PET film suspended in a “raw material” state until molecular fusion has taken place at application.
Molecular Fusion is achieved by the application of a fusion labeling exclusive (450°F) and (75psi); increasing the temperature of the Polyfuze Raw Material Label and Polyolefin Product to the melting point of both causing a molecular fusion
Once the fusion process is complete, the two polyolefin materials have combined to form one piece of seamless and flush polyolefin plastic with no change in durability or structural integrity.
A Full-Color Fusion label from Polyfuze can decorate Polyethylene, Polypropylene and its derivatives listed here:
Adhesives and bonding technologies are incompatible with the nature of LSE polyolefin plastics which means they’re prevented from permanently adhering or bonding for long durations necessary for durable goods products.
Similar to Teflon™, these plastics are simultaneously & continuously opposing bonding & adhesion from these labeling methods leading to label failures that create problems.
Those problems lead to costs such as:
– Over Manufacturing
– Production Scrap
– Additional Materials & Secondary Labor
– Brand Identity Loss
– Safety/Warning Labeling Loss
– Consumer Safety Risks & “Failure To Warn”
– Asset Tracking Loss
– and more…
∗Thermoplastic Polyolefin Plastics, preferred for durable goods manufacture, are non-polar, have high coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction, a high rate of outgassing and are low surface energy. Labels attempting to stick or bond ultimately fail when exposed to mechanical, chemical & environmental inputs and require secondary pre and post-treatments during labeling operations. No data available from suppliers on IML’s, Heat Transfers, Hot Stamp Foil or Adhesive Based Stickers applied to polyolefin plastics and durability tested.
† Utilizing Polyfuze Patented Fusion Technology (PPFT), Polyfuze Labels fuse into olefinic plastics permanently. They cannot be removed by mechanical, chemical or environmental inputs apart from destroying the product they’re fused to. Once the fusion process is complete, the two polyolefin materials have combined to form one piece of seamless and flush polyolefin plastic with no change in durability or structural integrity. Zero Scrap during manufacturing and Zero Brand Loss for the life of polyolefin products.
¢ High probability of label failure creates scrap during manufacture, re-labeling during use, additional labor and additional cost. Loss of Brand Identity & Image negatively effects Perception Of Value, WOM (Word Of Mouth), and Quality. Loss of Safety/Warning labeling puts consumers at risk while placing manufactureres and OEM’s at heightened risk of litigation.
