Performance Label Solutions

Tungate have been designing and manufacturing high performance labels for industry for over twenty years. During this time, the Company has become recognised as a market leader in the provision of label printing and automatic identification systems, across a wide range of industry sectors, supplying bespoke solutions precisely matched to our customers’ requirements.

Our performance labels are manufactured from 3M™ Performance Label Materials, many of which utilise advanced adhesives and top-coat technology, which our specialist team are able to match with durable thermal transfer ribbons to ensure first time error-free bar code reading and data capture.

In order to fully meet your expectations, we carefully consider a number of performance and application criteria, prior to working with you to select the most appropriate label material for your application.

The table below provides a brief overview of the frequently used materials at Tungate and is intended as an aid to help start your material selection process.

Once we have reviewed your criteria against your application, we can then start to put together your performance label solution. This may involve initial sample sheets for your evaluation, or prototype labels for you to evaluate in the field, all before the preparation of a formal proposal.

Your labels will then be manufactured in our specialist conversion facility in Cheadle to a manufacturing quality system compliant with ISO standards.
