Product spotlight: labels that won't add fuel to the fire

No matter how many precautions you take, equipment fires can happen. But, did you know the labels you use can add fuel to the fire?

Standard polyester labels continue to burn long after the ignition source is out, making an already bad situation worse. However, our B-443 Self-Extinguishing Thermal Transfer Printable White Matte Polyester label is designed to stop burning as soon as the ignition source is out, ensuring your labels don’t add to the problem.

These labels are especially effective for applications where halogen-free self-extinguishing properties are required. Our self-extinguishing labels are also recommended for use as a part number replacement label for Brady B-1000 RFID tags.
