Perfect adhesion for small radii

New label paper for pharmaceutical and office applications:

  • Thanks to its low stiffness, HERMAlaser sheet 50 (grade 133) is especially suited for labelling cylindrical pharmaceutical products such as ampoules or syringes.
  • The label paper ensures excellent printability for all xerographic printing processes.
  • Moreover, the corresponding low-migration adhesive is certified for direct contact with foodstuffs.

HERMA has developed the new HERMAlaser sheet 50 label paper, an especially lightweight material that ensures the permanent, safe labelling of surfaces with small radii. It is especially suited for use in pharmaceutical applications, e.g. in hospitals or laboratories. "The new material’s low weight minimizes the stiffness and thereby the ‘restoring force’ of the labels. The latter is especially noticeable when labelling delicate objects such as ampoules or syringes. But in such cases, good adhesion is essential – accidentally detached labels might have serious consequences", says Ralf Drache, head of sales at HERMA.

The surface of HERMAlaser sheet 50 is designed for excellent printability and toner keying with all xerographic printing processes. The label sheets are therefore suitable for desktop laser printers, copiers, and many inkjet printers. The paper is approved according to the BfR recommendation XXXVI (Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung, Federal Institute for Risk Assessment). It can therefore be safely used for food packaging and can be in direct contact with dry and fatty foodstuffs. The adhesive 62Z also features an approval for dry, moist, and fatty foodstuffs. Additionally, it can also be used for the direct labelling of blood bags which are used to store and transport blood donations and require especially reliable identification.
