TE Connectivity (TE), a maker of connectivity and sensors, has released the SP self-laminating polyester label as an labeling solution for applications that can withstand temperatures from minus 40˚C (minus 40˚F) up to 150˚C (302˚F).
TE’s SP is a thermal transfer printable, low-profile translucent polyester film with a permanent acrylic adhesive. It is supplied with a white printable area, which is over-laminated upon application with the translucent portion of the label. This ‘self-laminating” feature better protects the printed area from exposure to oil, solvents, water and abrasion.
SP’s low-profile design provides conformability to wires and cables due to its label thickness of only 45μm (0.0018”). It is conformable to round, irregular or flexible surfaces and is ideal for wire and cable identification, including flat ribbon cables subject to repeated bending. SP is recommended for when maximum temperature resistance is essential.
SP labels are available in a range of sizes 12.7mm to 50.8mm wide and from 25.4mm to 151.0mm high. SP is supplied die-cut, in roll format and is available in white as a standard color.
