Pressure Sensitive Labels
These self-adhesive labels are composed of face stock and a liner. The face stock is treated with an adhesive and positioned on a silicon-treated liner, which makes it easier to be removed. The amount of pressure applied to the label determines its adherence to the surface along with a couple of other factors, such as the texture of the surface, temperature, and whether the surface of the container at the time of sticking is free of dust and debris. To this end, you will find various types of self adhesive labels meant for different environments and applications.
