In layman’s terms, the label adhesive is the glue that will ensure your labels stick to the required surface. There are a number of different types of label adhesives which fall into two main categories, and the choice of where they are used will be made based on the label’s purpose. The most commonly used adhesives are permanent, where the label is not designed to be moved after contact is made. These labels are coated with an acrylic, rubber, or water-based glue which offers usage of a permanent or temporary application. These labels can be handwritten or printed on by laser and inkjet printers or photocopiers.
