You guessed it! Lots of labels! Not just any old label though; like their work, the labels for forensics that they require must be cutting edge and stand up to the job. Many times, this means using a label that will handle a variety of conditions such as temperature extremes, blood, chemicals and solvents.
Based on this customer’s criteria for a long-lasting evidence label that will be applied to paperwork and yet possibly exposed to blood, alcohol, bleach, condensation and -20°C temperatures, we suggested our Freez-R-Mark™ labels. Freez-R-Mark™ is a unique plastic specifically designed for freezer applications where application temperatures can be as low as -15°F (26°C) and service temperatures range anywhere from -65°F (-54°C) to 160°F (71°C). This gloss-coated material with its aggressive rubber-based “freezer” adhesive features excellent initial tack and ultimate bond to difficult surfaces including glass, plastic, painted metal and waxed corrugated cardboard. Freez-R-Mark™ labels don’t scare easily―even if subjected to -40°F blast freezing or applied to surfaces that have some frost or moisture buildup. Incredible, huh?!
NOTE: This is just one example where perhaps a lab really doesn’t need a “Cryogenic” Label Material but they do require something to handle cold freezer conditions. Contact The Label Experts for free test samples of our Freez-R-Mark™ labels.
