Direct thermal labels are used in a wide range of industries for printing barcodes, shipping labels, and other types of variable information. Traditionally, these labels have been made from virgin materials, but there is a growing trend toward using recycled fiber content. Enter Appvion’s newest product offering, Résiste® 15% PCW, a direct thermal label product designed with the future in mind. Made with 15% post-consumer waste, our topcoated label product performs like a virgin fiber product, all while giving life to materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
With its superior environmental resistance, Résiste® 15% PCW is the perfect choice for your deli, bakery, weigh-scale, package delivery, and retail label needs. Its precise imaging and compatibility with today’s direct thermal printers make it ideal for producing sharp, high-contrast barcodes.
Here are some of the benefits of using recycled fiber content for direct thermal labels:
- Environmental sustainability: Using recycled fiber content for direct thermal labels reduces the demand for virgin materials, which in turn conserves natural resources and diverts waste from landfills, promoting a circular economy.
- Comparable performance: Recycled fiber content can offer comparable performance to virgin materials in terms of strength, durability, and print quality. This means that businesses can use recycled fiber content without sacrificing quality.
- Regulatory compliance: Some industries are subject to regulations governing waste reduction and sustainability. Using recycled fiber content can help businesses meet these requirements.
- Brand reputation: Consumers are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of the products they buy. Using recycled fiber content for direct thermal labels can demonstrate a business’s commitment to sustainability, improving its brand reputation and attracting environmentally conscious customers.
Using recycled fiber content for direct thermal labels can offer a range of benefits, from environmental sustainability to regulatory compliance and brand reputation. When selecting Résiste® 15% PCW as a more sustainable alternative, businesses promote a healthier planet for future generations.
