The use of self-adhesive laminate for hanging devices is becoming increasingly common in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. These applications offer an economical solution for hanging glass bottles containing fluids for intravenous delivery. Furthermore, by combining label strength and tear resistance with high-shear adhesives, the weight of either glass or plastic bottles is firmly supported.
These self-adhesive products must exhibit characteristics which contribute to the functional performance of the final label and support compliance with relevant ISO and DIN norms.
Avery Dennison offers high tear-resistant Valéron® film and low-stretch PP125 combined with high adhesion and shear-resistant adhesives such as Fasson® S697, S517N and S700. These adhesives fulfill requirements for good water resistance, sterilisation and stability over time.
Typically intended for use with a variety of bottle sizes, including 50ml, 100ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1000ml, these labels stick directly to the containers or bottles and are designed with pre-cut, ungummed sections that form a handle for suspension of the bottle. Here, material selection, label design, and consideration of the adhesive surface area that is in contact with the bottle all become critical success factors in the development of effective hanging devices.
