Label - Attachment

Attachment

Labels can be attached by:

  • Heat activated adhesives: for example, "in-mold labeling" can be part of blow molding containers and employs heat activated adhesives. Hot melt adhesives are also used.
  • Pressure sensitive adhesives (also called PSA or self-stick) are applied with light pressure without activation or heat. PSA labels often have release liners which protect the adhesive and assist label handling.
  • Rivets used to attach information plates to industrial equipment
  • Shrink wrap for printed shrinkable labels placed over packages and then heated to shrink them
  • Sewing for clothing, tents, mattresses, industrial sacks, etc.
  • Wet glue (starch, dextrin,PVA etc.) or water moistenable gummed adhesive
  • Yarn or twine, so as to tie on the label

Famous quotes containing the word attachment:

    My attachment has neither the blindness of the beginning, nor the microscopic accuracy of the close of such liaisons.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Men are more evanescent than pictures, yet one sorrows for lost friends, and pictures are my friends. I have none others. I am never long enough with men to attach myself to them; and whatever feelings of attachment I have are to material things.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    The English, besides being “good haters,” are dogged and downright, and have no salvos for their self-love. Their vanity does not heal the wounds made in their pride. The French, on the contrary, are soon reconciled to fate, and so enamoured of their own idea, that nothing can put them out of conceit with it. Whatever their attachment to their country, to liberty or glory, they are not so affected by the loss of these as to make any desperate effort or sacrifice to recover them.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)
