Herma – Applying super strong and safe labels
GERMANY • The company presented the HermaSuperPerm 63S adhesive at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in Brussels. According to Herma the adhesive is especially suited for long-term labelling in the field of product identification.
It offers label users the possibility to permanently and safely label very different surfaces such as ABS, outgassing plastics, bitumen, foamed PP, natural fibre, PU foam, aluminium, stainless steel, or lacquered folding boxes. Additionally, it is used where authenticity, security, and inspection seals are required. According to Herma the final adhesion of this adhesive is so high that sealing labels equipped with the adhesive cannot be removed from lacquered packaging or other polar and non-polar surfaces including plastics, or steel, without destruction of the label or the packaging surface.
It is, so the company states, further extremely ageing-resistant, highly resistant against water, hot air, and various solvents. Since it is a dispersion adhesive, adhesive materials can be easily processed despite a relatively thick adhesive coating. Due to its versatility and suitability for universal use, HermaSuperPerm (63S) is a fitting solution for tasks where authenticity, safety, and inspection seals are required, such as the pharmaceutical, automotive, electronics, and food industries.
The adhesive is also suitable for pharmaceutical industry applications and other products with tamper-evident labels.
The adhesive is available with white, semi-gloss coated paper (HERMAextracoat, grade 242, or Hermasuper 60, grade 232) or with a transparent, glossy polypropylene film with a topcoat (Herma PP 50, grade 885). If required, other label materials such as paper with security features can be used.
