PPG Teslin® Substrate
When your application requires protection against the elements, you can’t settle for anything less than a high-performing label stock. From resistance to water, chemicals, extreme temperatures, and abrasion—PPG TESLIN® label stock delivers a variety of performance benefits for durable industrial labels, including security, medical-grade, food and beverage, and other specialty label applications.
TESLIN substrate is a polyolefin synthetic material formulated with micropores that absorb ink and toner, locking them into its structure for long-lasting durability and making labels virtually impervious to wear from handling and abrasion. And it is proven to weather harsh conditions by earning BS 5609 certification for GHS-compliant label applications.
Another key advantage of TESLIN substrate compared to other synthetics is its compatibility with a broad range of print processes, including laser, inkjet and thermal transfer for on-demand and variable data printing, without needing corona or other coatings. It also offers bubble-free application, and dissipates static to helps minimize buildup during digital printing for improved throughput and print quality.
When you need a tough, proven and versatile label stock to meet most your difficult labelling challenges, visit www.teslin.com/face-stock… and discover how we can help.
