K-Sun LABELShop® Line Adds New Tape Cartridges
Press release date: July 21, 2010
SOMERSET, WI K-Sun Corporation, a leader in labeling systems, label printers, safety sign/labeling software and supplies, has added two new tapes to the K-Sun LABELShop® line: white removable and silver matte.
The K-Sun LABELShop® line of thermal transfer tapes now has 60 color-and-size combinations with new ½" Black on White Removable Adhesive (Part no. 212RA) and ¾" Black on Silver Matte (Part no. 218SM).
"The versatility of repositionable tape and the visibility of the silver matte tape are both highly requested in numerous industries such as in medical labeling," says Mike Kasun, president of K-Sun Corp. "Our K-Sun LABELShop® cartridges are recyclable and halogen-free, too. So professionals who want to go 'green' can do so with our tapes."
The Black on White Removable tape is durable and tear-resistant yet repositionable for identification, bar coding or sequential alphanumeric or variable data. It is designed for labeling glassware, metals, plastic or other lab equipment for repeat usage, when labels might need to be removed quickly and easily without leaving adhesive residue.
The flexible polyester material and initial tack is strong enough for permanent adhesion on both radial and flat surfaces, can withstand variable and harsh temperatures, and is chemical-, smear-, and UV fade-resistant. The repositionable labels are also suitable for medical records and files. A laboratory, medical and chemical symbols & template library is available with K-Sun MaxiLabel Pro Ver 3 software that accompanies several models of K-Sun LABELshop® thermal-transfer printer.
The repositionable tape is also suitable for whiteboards, reusable shipping containers, inventory /warehouse shelving, work-in-progress applications, file/office use, shelf pricing and dozens more applications where label removal and repositioning is needed. The white background provides easy visibility on many surfaces and, when used on white surfaces, adds a professional appearance.
The new Black on Silver Matte is designed for bar code, asset management and property protection/inventory for warehouses, libraries, labs, offices and other facilities. Designed for permanent positioning on a wide variety of surface materials, silver matte is the optimal choice to use with bar code readers and can withstand extreme temperatures, abrasion and pressure.
The tapes are made of a durable, all-weather polyester base with an industrial grade acrylic adhesive. The tapes comply with ANSI/TIA/EIA-606A standards. Flexible, they can be mounted on curved surfaces. Tapes tests have yielded a 5-to-7 year outdoor life, and tapes can withstand extreme heat and cold temperatures. The tapes are used in K-Sun LABELShop® printers, which print with resin thermal transfer technology for UV, scratch, fade, chemical and smear resistance. Select K-Sun LABELShop® printers have the exclusive PeelGuard® system, a built-in device that rounds label corners to provide peeling protection. Thermal transfer printing offers sharp lettering to ensures clear communication, efficiency and organization in the laboratory and warehouse, enhancing safety and saving time.
