Low fire hazard and chemical resistant self-laminating labels for use in aerospace and defense
DARMSTADT, Germany – September 27, 2018 – TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, presents its PVF self-laminating labels for aerospace and defense. The PVF labels can be used in a wide variety of applications where there is exposure to extreme temperatures. They operate between minus 40 degrees Celsius and 107 degrees C, which makes them ideal for identification of wire and cable in environments where temperatures fluctuate widely such as during flights.
PVF is a thermal transfer printable, translucent polyvinyl fluoride film with a permanent acrylic adhesive, designed for wire and cable marking applications that require the ‘self-extinguishing’ properties of polyvinyl fluoride. PVF labels feature a white printable area, which is over-laminated upon application with a translucent portion of the label. This ‘self-laminating’ feature protects the printed area from exposure to oil, solvents, water and abrasion. This makes them ideal for use in harsh environments in aerospace and defense, as well as electrical and electronics.
“Our PVF self-laminating labels have a low-profile design making them suitable for wrapping onto thin wire gauges as well as excellent conformability to round, irregular or flexible surfaces,” said Stephen Earley, TE’s global product manager for identification systems. “TE designed the PVF labels as durable and reliable wire and cable identification markers in the tough and extreme environments of the aerospace and defense industry.”
The PVF labels also have excellent UV resistance and exhibit a high degree of resistance to aging. They are supplied with a slotted liner for easy printer recognition and have a great ink receptivity. They can be printed with both bar codes and alphanumeric codes.
