Problems Polymer Fusion Labeling Technology Can Solve For Olefin plastics.

Because of bad Label Adhesion you will have long term…

What is Polymer Fusion Labeling Technology

Different from standard Adhesion Label Technologies where the primary action is surface adhesion of two different materials attempting to glue together, Polymer Fusion Labeling Technology melts (fuses) a label made only of Polymer to the Polymer Product. Which at the molecular level is creating one piece of fused inseparable olefin plastic.

Example (Like welding two metals together)

Label Adhesion

Nothing wants to adhere long term to plastics like Polyethylene and Polypropylene!

The Surface Energy of Substrates

Dyne Level per Square Centimeter

Steel – 1000  

Polyethylene- 30 

Teflon – 18

We use Teflon to coat pans so nothings stick to it. The Polyolefin Family of plastics does the same thing with standard labels, rejects adhesion.

Our labels do not stick either… They FUZE

Fusion is a process that uses heat to join or fuse two or more materials by heating them to their melting point.

We do the exact same thing with our labels and the skin surface of the plastics products. 

Examples of Adhesion Based Labels

Poor Brand Image

Polymer Fusion Labeling Technology Elevated RCP's Brand Image

Polyfuze has a lifetime guarantee that the brand image will last the life of the product or part.

No other labeling company will claim that because they know they cant, due to the nature of these plastics rejecting adhesion

 

“Color Increases Brand Recognition By 80%”-Forbes

Polyfuze Helped RCP get back their three color brand image, boasting recognition of the Rubbermaid Brand once again.

 

Example – Which label did you recognize first when you looked at the image of the three Slim Jims.

After 4 Years of Use

Ligtiation of Wanring Labels

“Failure to Warn.”

The Supreme Court, essentially recognized that while generally, manufacturers are strictly liable for failing to warn, that duty is discharged where a sufficient warning is made because it can be reasonably assumed the warning will be read-(Rest.2d Torts, § 402A, com. j, p. 353.)

Polyfuze helped companies like GM and Ford with their Warning/Safety labels

Due to the rejection of adhesion They couldn’t find something that would adhere long term.

So GM and Ford turned to Polymer Fusion Labeling Technology, to exceed all standards they were held too.

Children’s product have standards set by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

Consumer Product Safety Act of 2008 (CPSIA)

The Consumer Product Safety Act of 2008 requires
manufacturers and importers of products intended for use by
children 12 and under to place permanent distinguishing marks
(tracking labels) on products within scope.

Fusion Labeling For Rubbermaid Commercial

Project Engineer - Rubbermaid Commercial

"I have been doing this for over 40 years. Based on your products performance with labeling our products...you guys make something that nobody else does... I can say that our scrap rate, using Polyfuze versus heat transfers, is far less... Once you start using it, it sells itself."
