MACtac® Roll Label secured Underwriter Laboratories (UL) Recognition for EFI Jetrion UV digital label inks used with its durable films, including: FAD6914, BDE6914 and FCD6914.
When using UL Recognized MACtac products, converters now have pre-approved compliance that they can rely on when printing durable labels digitally. Pre-approval means no new testing is required, only a paper transfer which can be submitted through an Internet portal, via email or phone.
“With the shift toward digital printing, UL Recognition for printing our durable films digitally is a major advantage to converters,” said Kim Hensley, product manager, MACtac Roll Label. “It allows converters to complete short- and medium-run label jobs, which not only reduces costs but also shortens the time needed to enter the durable goods labeling market.”
MACtac durable films are ideal where high-performance adhesive labels are required to resist extreme heat and cold temperatures and chemical exposure in applications such as nameplate, brand identification, caution and warning labels and compliance and hazard labels. The durable films now pre-approved for digital printing with the EFI Jetrion Series UV inks include:
• 2-mil gloss top-coated white PET with a 3.2 SCK liner
• 2-mil gloss top-coated clear PET with a 3.2 SCK liner
• 2.6-mil matte top-coated white UV resistant BOPP with a 3.2 SCK liner
UL is an independent product safety testing and certification organization that has been testing products and writing standards for more than a century, making it one of the most recognized conformity assessment providers in the world. UL’s label adoption process ensures fast market access by demonstrating that recognized labels have been evaluated to meet UL safety requirements. UL's Marking & Labeling Systems Program covers labels (nameplates or markers) that display safety and warning information on UL certified components and products. Most products are required to be permanently marked with specific safety-related information such as hazards, warnings, cautionary markings, installation instructions and electrical ratings.
