As a disruptive polymer technology company, Polyfuze provides advanced Fusion Labeling Technology for difficult to label polyolefin thermoplastics such as Polypropylene and Polyethylene which have largely replaced metal containers of the past for:
Since 2013, Polyfuze has provided thousands of Fusion Labels to our partners throughout the Waste/Recycling/Sanitation supply chain. Roll-out cart manufacturers like Otto Environmental and Rehrig Pacific. Haulers like Groot, Trash Taxi and Patriot Waste, and municipalities such as Latrobe Pennsylvania and Midway City Sanitary District. Polyfuze Fusion Labeling is the world’s only solution for labeling these challenging olefin-based plastics with:
Why do standard labels applied to polyolefin plastics like Polypropylene and Polyethylene used in waste bins and roll-out carts not meet 10+ year durability 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.
When exposed to UV, moisture, heat, cold, chemicals and outdoor environmental attack, standard labeling doesn’t meet demand.
Adhesive based labeling doesn’t stick, hot stamp foils chalk and wash away, and IML’s break down and fall apart leaving Haulers and Municipals with labeling that doesn’t meet 10+ year durability requirements.
Only Fusion Labeling Technology can fiz these problems shown and ensures Haulers, Municipals and Manufacturers a labeling solution guaranteed to be as durable as the waste bins and containers they’re applied to exceeding 10 years of use while being fully recyclable at product end of life.
