Dirty Jobs, the tv series on Discovery Channel, was one of our favorite shows for the time it was running on that channel until it ended in 2012. If you’re not familiar with the show, it’s host, Mike Rowe, explains it best. “My name’s Mike Rowe, and this is my job. I explore the country looking for people who aren’t afraid to get dirty — hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us. Now, get ready to get dirty.”
Getting ready to get dirty only brings two things to mind. The first, we won’t mention here. The second requires that you take your brain out of the gutter while conjuring up images of pallets and crates at shipping docks, roll-out carts and dumpsters for waste disposal, a slew of mop buckets, dust pans and janitorial carts used for cleaning, and an assortment of collection bins used at homes, businesses and recycling centers. Each of the aforementioned industries relies heavily on the millions of durable low surface energy (LSE) polyolefin plastic products they manufacture every year to help get those dirty jobs done and that’s not by accident.
Since the early 1990’s, LSE polyolefin plastics have quickly replaced composites, metals and other materials due to their exceptional durability. Industrial Designers and Engineers have chosen these plastics, specifically, for their ability to stand up against chemicals, harsh environments and heavy impacts while lasting 10 years or more, the normal life expectancy in these industries.
While it’s the naturally resistant nature of LSE polyolefin plastics that makes them so attractive for OEM’s to use, it’s also the reason we question label and adhesive companies that present misleading information about permanently adhering or bonding to LSE polyolefins in their marketing and data sheets.
Here’s a question to ponder! Ever wonder why most glue and adhesive bottles and caps are made from LSE polyolefin plastics? It’s because nothing, not even super glue, sticks or bonds to them. At least not permanently.
The only viable solution for OEM’s, is to use a 100% compatible Polyfuze label tailored to permanently meld into LSE polyolefin plastics.
How permanent are Polyfuze labels? So permanent that they’re backed by our lifetime guarantee, our pledge that names, logos, safety and warning labels will be on their durable dirty jobs products until end of life use.
And when end of life comes and it’s time to recycle, there’s no label to remove that only becomes waste on the ground or landfill because Polyfuze labels are 100% recyclable, just like the LSE polyolefin plastics they’re seamlessly fused to.
Polyfuze, the only label permanent enough to help LSE polyolefin plastic products get the dirty jobs done.
