Fasson® introduces direct thermal labels

Avery Dennison has introduced a new direct thermal self-adhesive facestock which it claims offers versatility, performance, and enhanced label aesthetics.

Fasson Thermal Top F8 is aimed at the broad food, logistics, retail and pharmaceuticals markets for functional barcode labels, and is launched with two established Fasson adhesives, Fasson S2000N emulsion-based and Fasson S2045 hot melt adhesives.
Aesthetics and functionality
The facestock itself is, according to Mark Lloyd, Product Manager, Thermals, Avery Dennison Roll Materials Europe, 'a real advance in terms of both good looks (not until now a feature of direct thermal labelstocks!) and exceptional functional qualities. First and foremost, the extra-strength facestock itself is approved to the German BfR recommendation XXI for direct contact with dry, non-fatty foodstuffs, as well as US FDA 175.105.
It's highly-resistant to oils, chemicals, heat, and UV light, and is equally at home in cold temperatures and freezers as in warm bakery environments.'
Additionally, Fasson Thermal Top F8 also offers significantly improved whiteness, which gives clear imaging and reliable, fast barcode readability.
Conversion characteristics
Fasson Thermal Top F8 with Fasson BG40 Brown glassine release liner is also optimised for the conversion of pre-printed labels on narrow-web presses by the conventional print processes, and the high-strength facestock enables fast, accurate diecutting and matrix-stripping.
