Why do standard labels applied to polyolefin plastics like Polypropylene, Polyethylene and Structural Foam used in Outdoor Power Equipment components not meet OEM and Industry label requirements? Because like Teflon®, nothing wants to stick to them.

Labeling Subjected and Withstanding Harsh Conditions

Polyfuze understands the issues that companies and manufacturers in the power equipment industry face. Power Equipment is frequently subjected to harsh outdoor environments, exposure to UV, the elements, and temperature drops and increases. Power equipment may also be exposed to harsh chemicals or power washers. Whether it’s for warning or safety or brand labeling, labeling low surface energy plastics with compatible Polyfuze Technology results in one seamless, flush piece of plastic, with no change in durability or structural integrity.

Bob Hastings - Hastings Manufacturing Inc.

"It’s like it has opened this whole new market! For people who want to do permanent decorating. Hot stamping has always kinda been that you had to burn it in there to leave an impression. But with a Polyfuze product, you get perfect graphics, fuzed in for the life of the product. Truly there hasn’t been anything on the market that has done that in the past."

How Are Labels Failures Costing You?

  • A loss of Brand Image and Brand Identity is immeasurable.
  • A loss of safety/warning information leads to customer safety risks that lead to potential litigation increasing the chance of financial loss.
  • Each time a label fails another label must take its place. This adds additional label and labor costs that take away from the bottom line.
Labels Do A Few Important Things!
  • Promote Brand Image and Brand Identity!
  • Safety/Warning Labels should teach consumers how to use products carefully to keep them safe from harm while providing defense to OEM’s in case of accidents or injuries.

The use of lower cost and more durable LSE polyolefin plastics is becoming more prevalent every year.

Labels used on these materials and in these environments must be able to endure all the normal exposures they encounter during normal life use of an automobile, around 15 years. The 3 characteristics of LSE polyolefin plastics makes that difficult and is the reason why other labeling methods to fail!

  1. They are low surface energy at 30-31 dyne/cm. Like Teflon®, nothing sticks to them.
  2. They have a high coefficient of thermal expansion/contraction with heat & cold, 18 times more than metals. Anything trying to stick has a moving target.
  3. They have a high VOC emission rate of outgassing. Bubbles further de-laminate labels attempting to adhere or bond.
Why Do Other Labeling Methods Fail?

Other labeling methods are constructed of adhesive-based substrates or a bonding layer printed with stock “off the shelf” inks and finished with a clear coat for protection and durability. Based on the nature of LSE polyolefin plastics, attempting to adhere or bond to these non-compatible materials for long-term use and exposure is impossible! Examples of these labeling constructions are seen below:

 

What Makes Polyfuze Labels The Best In The World?

As the world’s only “all-fusion” system for permanent labeling technology for Agricultural and Outdoor Power Equipment plastics, Polyfuze labels standout from the rest. With extensive durability testing beyond plastic labeling standards, Polyfuze has a proven track record in-the-field.

Polyfuze is the only label capable of meeting demanding CFR and OEM requirements (Polyfuze Test Data Report available upon request).

How Polyfuze labels benefit customers for the long-term:

When a label fails, the cost of losing Brand Image and Brand Identity is immeasurable. Polyfuze permanent labels maintain Brand Image and Brand Identity, leading to long-term Brand Awareness and revenue that a product brings during its life use!

When safety/warning labels fail, consumer safety and potential litigation become major risks. Polyfuze permanent labels mitigate those risks and eliminate the costs associated for the life of those products.

When a label fails, another must take its place. One Polyfuze permanent label eliminates the costs and needs of additional labels and labor for the life of the product.

Polyfuze labels are backed by the label industries only Lifetime Warranty.

To keep consumers safe while protecting OEM’s from litigious risk, Outdoor Power Equipment designers and engineers sourcing permanent safety/warning labels should know with certainty that labels applied to their products will last the life use of the vehicle they’re in. With Polyfuze, they can!

Using heat, Polyfuze labels permanently meld to agricultural and outdoor power equipment plastic products and components creating an unbreakable chain that cannot be removed by abuse, chemicals, UV or other environmental inputs until a product’s end-of-life (ELV). The system has also proven to save time, reduce scrap and save money all backed by the Polyfuze Lifetime Guarantee, the only of its kind in the label industry.

At a outdoor power equipment plastic products end-of-life (ELV), Polyfuze labels are 100% compatible with polyolefin thermoplastics meaning that the labeled polyolefin part or component can be fully recycled with no need for label removal or the waste it produces.
