As a disruptive polymer technology company, Polyfuze provides advanced Fusion Labeling Technology for difficult to label polyolefins such as Polypropylene, Polyethylene and Structural Foam used in the manufacture of outdoor power equipment and lawn and garden products like:
Working with companies and manufacturers such as Meyer, Pride Engineered Plastics, Salt Dog, Boss Snowplows, and Gemini, Polyfuze Fusion Labeling provides solutions for labeling needs such as:
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.
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 is at the molecular level creating one piece of fused inseparable Olefin plastic.
How Does It Work?
Pigmented Polymer (Fusion Label) is molecularly fused to Olefinic Plastic (Product) using heat/pressure via standard Hot Stamp / Heat Transfer / VersaFlex Technology.
The fusion reaction takes place quickly during this process resulting in the two plastics coming together (Melting/Joining) and then quickly cooling once complete.
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.
As the world’s only “all-fusion” system for permanent labeling technology for 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 requirements (Polyfuze Test Data Report available upon request).
Warning Labels Are Meant To Protect OEM’s And Inform Customers. Polyfuze Fusion Labeling Technology Exceeds This Requirement and More Where Others Fail.

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.
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.
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!
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:
