Adhesion-Based Shortcomings

Why Other Methods Fail

Reusable plastic containers, crates, totes, and pallets are all products that the reusable packaging industry produces which are contributing to the investment of a circular and sustainable economy and future.

Most reusable containers, crates, totes, or pallets are made from high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE). This plastic is chosen specifically for its superior performance including puncture resistance, chemical resistance during sanitization or pressure washing procedures, and long service life.

However, the performance properties that make HDPE such a versatile material for reusable packaging also make it problematic for common “adhesion-based” warning labeling methods (pressure-sensitive adhesive, in-mold, hot stamp foil, heat transfer, silkscreen, pad printing, and more) that are intended to be on the product for life use.

Labeling Technology
For Reusable
Packaging

The types of labels that reusable packaging requires varies, and it could be anything from tracking, tracing, authentication labels, to branding, to warning and safety labels.

In any case, these labels are meant to convey important information and when they fail to adhere to reusable packaging containers, they often have to be replaced which costs time and money.

Where adhesion and other labeling methods fail, Polymer Fusion Labels are engineered specifically for difficult to label, low surface energy HDPE reusable plastics and will exceed performance standards for the environments and standards that reusable packaging is often exposed to.

Polymer Fusion Labels
Reusable Packaging Performance

Performance Attributes
