September 2019, Waldkirch. Labels are an important component of packaging in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, biotech and medical technology industries. They have to meet very different requirements, depending on their specific uses. This is why the packaging specialist August Faller has published a new white paper that provides a comprehensive overview of materials, technologies and design options.
Adhesive labels tackle a wide variety of tasks – they display health warnings and important information on a drug’s correct dosage and shelf life for doctors, pharmacists and patients. At the point of sale, they increase the attractiveness of over-the-counter products, helping to boost sales. Equipped with batch numbers and serialised codes, 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. For example, they differ in their design, the materials & printing technology used and in size & format. The new white paper by August Faller provides information on the possibilities users have to develop and design the best possible label for their needs. 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.
