Chemical- And Heat-Resistant Industrial Labels - The Solution For Harsh Environments

Because manufacturing processes place extreme demands on barcode labels, Computype’s chemical- and heat-resistant industrial labels are engineered to perform.
If a label lacks the durability to stay attached and legible through a production or manufacturing process, costly hold-ups and waste will occur. With Computype’s heat-resistant labels, you gain reliability in even the most demanding environments.
