New TT413 labeling series offers vital identification and traceability for high-leverage printed circuit board components.
Ingleside, IL – IDENTCO – a manufacturer of high-performance labeling solutions for the power equipment, electronics, transportation, and general industrial sector – has introduced a robust series of labels for printed circuit board (PCB) applications that features a substrate developed exclusively for IDENTCO by a prominent industry materials and coating supplier. Providing vital identification and traceability for high-leverage PCB components, the new TT413 labeling series easily withstands prolonged, repeated exposure to the chemicals and high temperatures typical to post-production washing processes.
IDENTCO’s TT413 portfolio is designed for on-demand thermal transfer printing of variable information – a plus for electronics companies incorporating serialization and/or anti-counterfeiting coding into their production practices. A 2.4 mil gloss white polyimide provides exemplary, ultra-durable resistance against smudges, solvent, heat, and abrasion, and serves as a receptive surface for a variety of thermal transfer ribbons from IDENTCO.
TT413 labels feature a 2.0 mil ultra-aggressive permanent acrylic adhesive that, like the product’s printable materials, offers excellent resistance to harsh chemicals and high temperatures. Its adhesive power is equally impressive, with tests showing a 20-minute dwell with a peel adhesion strength of 40oz/in or higher for both stainless steel and PC board. At 24 hours, the labels boast dwell strengths of 43oz/in for epoxy, and an especially strong 55oz/in for stainless steel.
The new labeling solutions are ideally suited to a wide array of electronics components manufacturing environments, including box builds, internal and external vehicle parts (such as in-cabin infotainment systems and outside sensors), and various other computer unit and PCB assembly settings.
“Featuring a substrate developed specifically for IDENTCO, the new TT413 series is designed to meet the type of demanding durable labeling requirements inherent to various PCB applications and electronics components production,” said Victor Holbein, Chief Operating Officer for IDENTCO. “Its special polyimide allows it to provide exceptional levels of durability and functionality at an exceedingly cost-effective price point.”
IDENTCO’s TT413 labels are available in release liners composed of 55# glassine or 1.5 mil polyester, each suitable for both automated or manual application processes.
