White Paper

At Able Label, we utilize both Top-Coated and Non-Top Coated Paper material for the conversion of Direct Thermal White Labels.

Premium Top-Coated Direct Thermal Paper

Over 100 of our products are made with Premium Top-Coated Direct Thermal material.  This medium sensitivity bright white Direct Thermal Paper material provides optimum environmental resistance with its top-coated paper quality and offers an optimal scanning wavelength range under 660nm.  Complete with a permanent acrylic emulsion adhesive with an aggressive initial tack, very good adhesion and mandrel hold.

Able Label’s Top-Coated Direct Thermal White Labels work well with retail, healthcare and industrial sectors.  Great choice for barcode and human readable labels for shipping, inventory management, pricing and short-term product labels.  Recommended for use with standard speed thermal printers.

Economy Non-Top Coated Direct Thermal Paper

A low cost solution for Direct Thermal Paper Labels with short duration use or applications where the label does not require environmental resistance or exposure to solvents, water, oils, fats or other similar materials. The face stock of this Non-Top Coated Paper material is a medium sensitivity white paper complete with a non-tackified all temp acrylic adhesive, very good adhesion to a wide variety of packaging materials and is used for general purpose labeling.

Able Label stocks the most commonly used sizes for shipping labels, such as 4” x 6” shipping labels, as well as 4” x 6.75” and 4” x 8.25” DocTab Labels that are comparable to FedEx® 156148 and UPS® 0177400801.
