Label Business

Q:
What are the differences between permanent and removable label?
A:

Permanent: The bond to the substrate makes removal difficult or impossible without distorting the facestock or damaging the substrate.
Removable: The bond to the substrate makes removal easy without damage to the facestock or substrate.
Considerations with removable adhesives:
- Make sure that the surface on which the label is to be applied is strong enough to withstand label removal. Some papers and board stocks require special considerations.
- The size of the label is important with removable labels. Larger labels will require a stronger facestock to ensure removability.
- Small labels with a stiff facestock may not adhere well to curved or irregular surfaces and may appear 'too removable'. Prior testing is always recommended.

Q:
What is the composition of the substrate?
A:

The composition of the substrate that the label will be applied to can have an effect on the ultimate strength of the bond that the label will obtain.
It is important to identify the exact type of substrate being used. Specific identification of any substrate is needed.
- Plastic is not descriptive enough. The level of adhesion will vary with the type of 'plastic' being used: High Density Polyethylene, Low Density ,Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Vinyl, Polyester etc.

On low surface energy materials, initial tack is the most important criteria. Adhesion levels may improve with longer dwell.
What is the texture of the substrate (the surface to which the label will be applied)?
The texture of a substrate can have an impact on the bond to the material as textured materials do not allow 100% contact of the adhesive you have
purchased with your substrate - less contact; less bonding area; lower adhesion.
A rough/mottled surface may require a stronger bonding adhesive to maximize adhesion at contact area.
Adhesion to any substrate is achieved by the adhesive flowing into all areas of the substrate and "bonding" with them.

Q:
Are there any special application or exposure conditions that the label must withstand?
A:

Special conditions may be defined as: temperature extremes, outdoor weatherability, ultra-violet light exposure, sterilization, large amounts of humidity or moisture and exposure to solvent/cleaning agents.
Some other questions to consider:
- Will the label be exposed to large amounts of moisture? If so, a moisture resistant or wet strength facestock should be selected with gloss over-varnish.
- Will there be prolonged exposure to ultra-violet light? Long term exposure to U.V. light deteriorates rubber-based adhesives. Special adhesives may be needed if transparent facestocks are to be used or the labels are to last an exceptionally long time. Concentrated U.V. exposure will also affect the
graphics on the label so this consideration is particularly important where long label life is desired.
- Will the label be exposed to elevated temperatures +90 degrees C for an extended period? If so, an acrylic adhesive combined with film or foil may be required.

Q:
What are the differences between general & digital self-adhesive label?
A:

Thai KK has developed our latest product for printing on "Digital Printing Machines: both on Dry-Ink and Indigo systems." For the digital printing machine's structure, some requires high temperature for the ink to settle well on the label, while some may also need special coating for better visibility of the color's shade.

We have designed our new products by using diferrent materials with general grade to supply to the market.


This is one of our label's competitive strength from other companies.
1. Special Formulation Adhesive : High Temp resistance
2. Special Release Liner : Flat and Strength
3. Good Printability Quality
4. Product variety
5. Technical services

Q:
What is PBS?
A:

PBS (Poly Butylene Succinate) is a kind of bioplastics derived from renewable biomass such as cornstarch, cassava, sugarcane, vegetable fats and oils, or by other agricultural products.

Melamine Business

Q:
What is melamine molding compound?
A:
  • - Melamine molding compound ( thermosetting plastics) is amino molding compound composed of melamine formaldehyde and alpha cellulose as filling material with the addition of lubricant, hardening agent and pigments.

  • - Thermoset offers many advantages over basic thermoplastics and are suitable for compression and injection molding. They are produced in a precise, brilliant, light fastness and vibrant range of colors. They are available in powder (which gives much better surface) or granular form.

  • - Melamine molding compounds are strong , glossy , very very durable and highly resistant to staining. They have better resistance to heat, solvents, chemicals, moisture, electricity and scratching than urea molding compounds.

Q:
What are major applications of melamine?
A:
  • - Melamine thermoset is approved for contact with foodstuffs and they don't affect the food's flavor even at high temperatures so they are used in kitchen, utensils and dinnerware.
  • - Bathroom accessories and electrical components.

 

Q:
Does your melamine contain Bisphenol A (BPA)?
A:
  • - All our melamine products certify BPA-free and also non-hazardous components.
Q:
Is melamine safe to use for food container?
A:
  • - The FDA Safety and Risk Assessment of Melamine states that this kind of plastic is absolutely safe for use
Q:
Does your melamine comply to food safety standard?
A:

It complies with the requirements on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food as described in the following national legislation and regulations:

  • - Thai Industrial Standard, TIS 1245-2553 (2010), relating to Melamine-formaldehyde molding compound (in accordance with Japanese Industrial Standard, JIS K 6911).

  • - Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011, relating to plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
