Scale & Linerless Labels
These labels are mostly used in the food labeling industry and it is common for the average shopper to see a printed scale label on fresh produce when purchasing at a local supermarket.
Stores that sell meat, seafood, vegetable and fruit make use of a digital scale (See our sister company Scalerite for more info on scales) that print on labels which indicates a product code or bar code, as well as price and weight information of the product.
Made from high quality top coated thermal paper these labels can be subjected to a lot of handling and undergo additional abuse at home in the form of heat, moisture or freezing.
Usually, there are particular types of scale labels recommended for a specific scale brand or model. Our Scale labels are manufactured in rolls which easily fit into these digital weighing scales for easy use.
Linerless labels go through a special manufacturing process which coats the top of the label with a silicone coating and coats the back of the label in an adhesive which that is easily peeled off the silicone coated surface of the label below yet they securely stick to the surface it is meant to go. Since these labels dont use liners it eliminates paper liner waste and by doing this you can have more labels wound onto the a given roll diameter which halves the frequency of roll replacement which reduces downtime of your printers.
