Paxar Offers Dye-Resistant, Heat-Seal Label Tapes

Paxar Corp., White Plains, N.Y., has introduced two label tapes suitable for overdye and industrial
laundering applications.

The 4760DWT dye-resistant thermal transfer fabric tape is suitable for sewn-in care labels.
According to Paxar, the coated polyester tape is strong enough to withstand industrial and denim
washes but remains soft for next-to-skin applications. The tape can be printed on both sides using
fonts as small as three points.

The 4700THS heat seal tape has an industrial heat seal that withstands abrasive washing, will
not delaminate even after repeated washing, and offers excellent print quality, according to the
company. The tape is suitable for bar code tracking labels.Both tapes can be printed using Paxar’s
printers, including the SNAP 500 in-plant, electronic, thermal transfer care label printer.
