Free White Paper on Pharmaceutical Labels

In the pharmaceutical, healthcare, biotech and medical technology industries, labels tackle a wide variety of tasks. They display information for doctors, pharmacists and patients, and they increase the attractiveness of over-the-counter products. Also, they help manufacturers to make their production processes transparent and traceable and protect themselves against product counterfeiting. To handle all these tasks and many others in the best possible way, labels are available in a large number of variants.

In its new white paper „Pharmaceutical Labels: All-rounders for High Demands“, August Faller provides a comprehensive overview of materials, technologies and design options for adhesive labels. For example, readers can find out which type of label is suitable for which kind of use, how the individual components can be ideally matched to one another and which factors are decisive in the production of labels.

Faller offers new DryPeel Flag Label for reliable documentation

August Faller has developed a new label. The DryPeel Flag label consists of three material layers and is particularly suitable for documentation and simple product marking. The label can be removed in partial layers without leaving any residue or adhesive. It enables doctors, for example, to safely and accurately document the use of an anaesthetic or a vaccine.

The middle layer of the DryPeel Flag Label is easy to separate from the base label. More part labels can also be removed for descriptions: for marking injection vials in medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry or laboratories. These can be designed in such a way that they adhere to the container and stand out like a flag. The user can mark them easily and legibly with a ballpoint or transparency pen.

The label is made of paper and can be safely and completely recycled – making a significant contribution to more environmentally-friendly pharmaceutical packaging. The innovative idea was realised at the Faller factory in Schopfheim, southern Baden-Württemberg, which specialises in the production of labels.

The need for information on pharmaceutical packaging is increasing rapidly, because as well as legally-prescribed information, labels must also contain more and more application aids for doctors, pharmacists and patients – often in the form of pictograms or multi-lingual versions.
