LABEL TYPES FOR THE TYRE INDUSTRY FROM SUPPLYLINE ID
Tyre labels are an integral part of the regulation bought in by the EU in 2012 to make sure as much information as possible to offered to the consumer. They are a minimum requirement for any tyre manufacturer or distributor.
In August 2018, the EU made an announcement in regards to their plan to update and improve current regulations by making it a requirement for any retailers to show the labels to motorists when tyres are purchased.
It is expected that the new regulations will also require labels to include the tyres’ snow and ice performance, as well as ratings for mileage and wear.
Supplyline offers a range of suitable label substrates and adhesives that would suit this application. None however would we recommend more than Avery Fastyre, a product specially designed to meet the performance requirements of automotive tyre labelling.
With a high-tack rubber based adhesive designed for use on rough and difficult surfaces such as tyre rubber. The product will remain free of staining pattern from the tyre tread under the majority of normal storage conditions
Tyre vulcanisation and distribution labels
There are two types of tyre label :
- Tyre vulcanisation labels: these barcode labels provide product traceability during manufacture. The application of pressure on the label at the same time as exposure to high temperature (200°C) can damage the printed message.
- Tyre distribution labels: contains identification information for the user (brand, model and dimensions). It must be perfectly legible at the point of sale and be able to resist the various forms of attack during transportation and storage.
Tyre label printing constraints
Tyre labels are subjected to significant duress throughout the various production and logistics stages: vulcanisation, abrasion, rain, cold, long-duration storage, UV light… all constitute forms of attack likely to damage the printed matter. One illegible barcode and the entire logistics chain may be disrupted.
In accordance with the new European standard 1222/2009 on tyre labelling, manufacturers and importers in the European Union must provide the end user with tyre performance data in terms of rolling resistance, wet braking distances and noise emissions.
Tyre labels, frequently pre-printed, require customised technical data for each product: dimensions, symbols, barcodes, etc.
ARMOR ribbons for tyre label printing
Thermal Transfer technology can be used to print both vulcanisation labels and tyre distribution labels.
For tyre distribution labels printed on coated or synthetic paper, ARMOR Wax-Resin inks offer an excellent compromise between resistance and cost. For more aggressive environments, Resin inks offer improved print durability.
For synthetic vulcanisation labels, it is recommended to print using ARMOR Resin inks for optimum levels of resistance to heat and solvents.
Resistant to high-temperature vulcanisation processes
