Thermal Transfer Labels

If you work in a retail environment, it is likely you have come across thermal transfer labels plenty of times already. These useful labels are mainly used for barcodes and to label things like products and food. Keep reading to find out more about thermal transfer labels.

What is a thermal transfer label?

Thermal transfer labels are created with an industrial thermal printer that uses a wax or wax/resin ribbon. They can be used in many different fields, including retail, catering, logistics and distribution, cosmetics and medical devices. They are able to withstand a temperature range of -15°C to +90°C and are ideal for barcode labelling because they produce high-quality images with perfect definition. 

How are thermal transfer labels made? 

Thermal transfer printing is a digital printing method which prints by melting a coating of ribbon onto the label. This is different to thermal printing, which does not use a ribbon. 

Thermal Transfer printing produces long-lasting, durable images on a variety of different materials including Thermal Transfer Labels. Due to the method they are printed, Thermal Transfer Labels last much longer than just thermal printing labels as they are less light and heat sensitive. Thermal transfer labels retain colour and do not blacken in close proximity with heat.

One of the most common problems with pressure sensitive adhesive labels is the selection of the correct adhesive to meet your requirements. If unsuitable adhesive products are used this can lead to poor bonding with your object surface, leading to easy peeling or, in the worst scenario, even falling off completely.

Many factors can impact on the selection of the correct adhesive type. These can include;

1.       If your label is meant to be permanent or temporary, indoor or outdoor.

2.       Differing surfaces on which the label is to be applied. Some materials such as low energy plastics, rubber, powder or paint coated finishes on metals or galvanised steel can prove to be more difficult and not suitable for lower specification adhesives.

3.       Surface textures. Is your surface smooth and flat, curved, stippled or textured, or uneven?

4.       Operating conditions. This can include low or high temperature use, high levels of humidity, presence of moisture, resistant to chemicals, excessive ultra-violet light or need to be flame retardant.


Bear in mind that most adhesives prefer to be applied at temperatures of 10° C, and need to be applied to clean, dry, dust free surfaces, with an absence of oil or silicone sprays. On treated surfaces, after initial application, the adhesive will continue to cure and fuse to the surface, to create a secure bond after 24-72 hours.
