Designed for a one-time application, labels made with general purpose adhesive are also known as permanent labels. Once these labels are applied, they should not be removed as they will tear.
The wet-out time for labels with general purpose adhesive is roughly 10-15 minutes. These labels are best applied in dry, room temperature environments on surfaces at a minimum of 35 degrees Fahrenheit. The storage range for general purpose adhesive labels ranges from 5-120 degrees Fahrenheit.
General-purpose adhesive is by far the most popular at Smith Corona. For this type we use a hotmelt formula. This allows us to have a more aggressive adhesive, which is better at creating a more permanent bond.
This hotmelt formula works for nearly all applications. Some examples include:
- Corrugated cardboard
- Poly bags
- Plastic totes
- Shrink wrap
