Durable Consumer Product Labels

Three years! That’s the minimum requirement Durable Consumer Products are expected to last and be utilized without consumers needing to purchase them again.

Engineers of these products design them to have a long lifespan that includes withstanding a variety of climates, temperatures, and exposures which means most of them are manufactured using durable and cost-effective polyolefin thermoplastics in lieu of expensive metals and composites.

Products can range from household items like washers & dryers to commercial products like dustpans & mop buckets. Even hobbyist items like kayaks & coolers make the list.

Why Other Methods Fail

Many of these durable and reusable products are made from low surface energy polyolefin thermoplastics such as high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP). These plastics are chosen specifically for their superior performance properties that include long service life with resistance to damage, chemicals, UV exposure, and washing/sanitizing processes.

These performance properties that make polyolefin thermoplastics such a versatile material for durable consumer products also make them problematic for common “adhesion-based” labeling methods (pressure-sensitive adhesive, in-mold, hot stamp foil, heat transfer, silkscreen, pad printing, and more) that are intended to be on these products for life use.

The reason! Polyolefin thermoplastics more closely resemble the “stick-resistant” properties of Teflon® than other polymers rendering adhesion-based labeling methods ineffective as they’re both resistant and incompatible. Real-world proof consistently shows that these labeling methods cannot meet the life-use requirement necessary whether for safety/warning, information, or even branding.

Labels for Playground Equipment

Children can have hours of fun on pieces of playground equipment like swings, slides, and climbing frames. However, these products also need to be assembled correctly and used by children of the right ages to avoid accidents and injuries. That’s where labels come in. Plastic product labels are typically placed on playground items to inform users about the ideal age and weight ranges. However, classic consumer product labels can peel away or wear down over time. For a better solution, choose Polyfuze. Our labels are made from advanced polymer technology and actually fuse directly onto the playground equipment, so they’ll never fade away. Polyfuze will also be a great option if you need labels for outdoor equipment.

Labels for Home Appliances

Every household has its own set of appliances, like dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerators. These appliances provide essential everyday functions, from storing food to cleaning clothes. They need to be reliable and dependable, and they need to have the right labels, too. Household appliances energy consumption labeling is critical to inform users about how much energy each appliance uses, but standard adhesive labels can peel and fade over time. Polymer fusion labels from Polyfuze are a better option. Our labels are made with less waste and lower material costs, using polymer fusion technology to fuse each label directly onto the surface of the appliance so that it won’t fade away over time.

Labels for Tools & Toolboxes

Plenty of people make use of tools and toolboxes on a daily basis, from professional builders and repair workers to DIY enthusiasts in their own homes. These items need to be made to high standards, and they also need to be used with care to avoid injuries and accidents. Consumer product warning labels on tools and toolboxes inform users about the correct usage and safety information for each product. The best commercial product labels are those that won’t fade, peel, or wear down. Polyfuze labels are the only permanent labeling solution to work with polyolefin plastics, and our labels actually fuse directly onto items like toolboxes, so they’ll never wear down.

Labels for Sports Equipment

Sporting equipment is used by athletes, active people, and sports-based businesses around the world. This equipment has to be constructed according to strict standards, and the same applies for sports equipment labels. Sports labels need to be clear, informative, and long-lasting, giving users clear information about the correct usage of each piece of equipment. For the best sports labels, choose Polyfuze. Our low-scrap, high-yield labeling system creates permanent labels that fuse directly onto products, adhering to the highest standards of quality, performance, and sustainability. You can count on these sports equipment labels to go the distance.

Polymer Fusion
Labeling Technology
For Durable Consumer

Polymer Fusion is the science of merging two separate low-surface energy plastic polymers together (polyolefin label + polyolefin component) utilizing melting point, time, and pressure, which produces a singular piece of plastic without the use of adhesives, tie-layers, bonding agents, or secondary surface treatments.

During application, the Polymer Fusion Label and the polyolefin thermoplastic component simultaneously reach melt-point, causing a fusion reaction.

The result is permanent labeling for Home Appliances, Residential / Commercial Playground Equipment, Tools & Toolboxes, Sports Equipment, Kayaks, Coolers, and other durable consumer goods that cannot be lifted, separated, or removed for the life-use of the product no matter the harsh environment or exposure.

Where adhesion and other labeling methods continue to fail, Polymer Fusion Labels were engineered specifically for 100% compatibility and 100% recyclability with all polyolefin thermoplastics. They have been proven to exceed performance and durability standards no matter the use or environment consumer products may be exposed to.
