There are several scenarios within the healthcare sector where a label would need an additional coating.
One of the most common is a laminate which not only creates the ultimate protection against marking and scuffing but also makes the label waterproof. We can coat your labels with either a matt clear laminate or a gloss clear laminate, this then enables you to put your label on various products with the guarantee that the information being held on the label will not disappear because our waterproof labels are BS5609 standard compliant and would remain on the product for up to 3 months of continuous immersion in water.
We can also coat in a matt clear UV varnish or gloss clear UV varnish. A varnish would still add a certain level of protection to the label, however, a varnish could still be susceptible to some chemicals.
