K-Sun LABELShop® Line Adds New Tape Cartridges

Black on White Repositionable & Black on Silver Matte Enhance Lab, Shop & Industrial Applications

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," says Mike Kasun, president of K-Sun Corp. "Our K-Sun LABELShop® cartridges are recyclable, too. So professionals who want to go 'green' can do so with our tapes."

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, it is the optimal choice to use with bar code readers and withstands extreme temperatures, abrasion and pressure.

The Black on White Removable tape, because it is tear-resistant yet repositionable, is a solution for lab equipment and slides, whiteboards, reusable shipping containers, inventory shelving, work-in-progress applications, file folders and office use, pricing and dozens more applications where label removal and re-installation is needed. The white background provides easy visibility on many surfaces and, when used on white surfaces, adds a professional appearance. The clear acrylic adhesive sticks, stays and removes easily and conforms to radial surfaces and leaves no residue.

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. Most K-Sun LABELShop® printers have the exclusive PeelGuard® system, a built-in device that rounds label corners to provide peeling protection.
