Printing with high weather resistance

Identification and traceability plant labels for the horticultural sector may be watered 100 times, handled dozens of times and sprayed with fertiliser while in the full glare of the sun for months on end, not to mention extreme heat and frost.

In spite of such extreme conditions, the labels must remain perfectly legible throughout the supply chain from the field to the shop, informing customers and enabling the checkout process.

ARMOR solutions for horticultural labels

ARMOR’s Thermal Transfer ribbons offer an excellent print finish for stick-in or loop labels, whether out of PVC or Tyvek®.

The print sharpness makes it possible to print all types of barcodes, large and small characters, prices and logos on horticultural labels. The inks used in ARMOR black ribbons (and certain other colours) are not degraded by sunlight.

If you are printing on a horticultural label which is not exposed to very aggressive conditions then a Wax-Resin ink such as the APX®FH+ is an ideal option.

For labels exposed to the most aggressive conditions (fertiliser, extreme temperatures and abrasion), a Resin ink from the AXR® range is recommended to ensure excellent data legibility over time.

Resistance to abrasion between plants

Horticulture / Nursery From ITW

Horticulture / nursery labels must be tough enough to make it through the various horticultural processes from beginning to end.  The bar code ribbon and label must have excellent resistance to outdoor elements including humidity, UV, moisture, dirt, fading and mechanical destruction.  This means that plants can be identified and tracked from the supplier, to the reseller, to the end user.  Thermal transfer ribbons for horticultural / nursery applications can be printed on tag stocks like Valeron® V-Max, or polyester self-adhesive labels used on plant stakes, tie-on tags, hang tags, flats and pot labels.

PrintheadSaver® Extreme Series Midrange™ (ESM™) wax/resin ribbons offer a flexible, durable and extreme wax/resin product formulation that can withstand the environments that they are exposed to in horticultural / nursery settings. To find a PrintheadSaver® ribbon / label combination for your specific application, log on to our ITW Thermal Films Extreme Solutions™.
