MP metalized polyester labels from TE Connectivity enable safe and flexible labeling
Low fire hazard and fluid resistant marker sleeves prove high quality printing media for use in harsh environments
SWINDON, U.K. – September 29, 2017 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, featured product for July is the MP metalized polyester labels designed for harsh environments. The MP labels can be used in a wide variety of applications where there is exposure to solvents and other chemicals in industrial, telecoms, electrical, electronics and military industries.
MP is a thermal transfer printable metalized polyester film with a permanent acrylic adhesive, designed for rating plates and general purpose applications that require a metal look, such as nameplates, equipment labels, detailed product information labels and serial number plates. MP is resistant to a variety of industrial solvents while maintaining excellent print quality. It supports alphanumeric codes and graphics such as bar codes.
“Our MP, metalized polyester labels are industrial-grade labels ideal for harsh environments, especially when solvents are present,” said Stephen Earley, Global Product Manager Identification Systems. “TE designed the MP labels to meet and exceed industry standards. That’s why we have a strong set of certification and approvals from standards organizations.”
MP labels are ANSI/UL 969 rated, meet stringent military requirements of the MIL-STD-202 Method 215, SAE International SAE AS 4952- Marking of Electrical Insulating Materials criteria and the FTM-1 peel adhesion standard from FINAT, the European association for the self-adhesive label industry.
The MP labels also meet environmental considerations. The MP labels do not contain any declarable or prohibited substances from the UNIFE Railway Industry Substances List. Further information covering RoHS and REACH compliance can be found at the TE Product Compliance Support Centre.
