Due to the demands of the automotive and e-mobility industries (we wrote about them, among other things, here), also labels and tags must feature increased durability in unusual conditions that prints have to cope with. As in the case of control panels and front panels, the challenges are hot oils, pressurized water, high temperature and UV radiation. Labels and tags printed with screen printing method constitute therefore a more durable alternative to classic markings. What can Etisoft Group, as a label manufacturer, offer the automotive and e-mobility industries? Check it out!
In today’s article we will focus on an alternative method of printing labels and tags. They are supplied by one of the Etisoft Group companies – Graffiti Printing House.
Resistance to harsh operating conditions – what we pay attention to as a manufacturer of labels and markings
Automotive labels are popular products used in the automotive industry. Apart from performing basic functions targeted at users, they also play a crucial role in ensuring safety and component identification. The information contained in them includes technical details, operating instructions and remarks relating to the correct and safe use of the product. This is significant both from the perspective of the target user and the professionals who maintain vehicles over many years of use. This is why the ability of labels to withstand harsh operating conditions should serve as a key factor in the selection of printing technology. Labels and tags printed using screen printing technology will therefore be a more durable alternative to classic labels in the following cases:
- Labels for engine parts and components – oil filters, timing belts and starters. They should feature labels resistant to oil, fuel, and high temperatures. The durability of these labels is essential for the identification of parts and preservation of information about their parameters.
- Tags for operating fluids – such as engine oils, brake fluids and coolants. They must be resistant to chemicals and varying temperatures. Durable fluid filler tags ensure that the information on them will remain legible for the entire service period of the vehicle.
- Warning labels – informing about hazards and precautions. They should be placed, for instance, on batteries or around the engine. They also need to be durable, weatherproof, and resistant to contact with oils and chemicals.
