Piggyback Paper

Piggyback Labels are constructed with a printable face stock and two liners.  A medium sensitivity top-coated direct thermal face stock allows for optimum environmental resistance and an optimal scanning wavelength range under 660nm. The top label and the middle liner use a permanent acrylic adhesive which offers aggressive initial tack, excellent ultimate adhesion and mandrel hold to corrugated, glass and various plastic substrates.  The adhesive is considered to be latex glove friendly, making it an excellent choice for use in some healthcare applications. Recommended for use in standard speed thermal printers.
