Adhesive (Permanent) - What is a permanent adhesive?
Definition of PERMANENT ADHESIVE:
A pressure sensitive adhesive characterised by good initial tack and a relatively high ultimate adhesion. The adhesive will adhere firmly and securely to a substrate and will be difficult to remove. A label with a permanent adhesive may be removed if enough force is used but the process is likely to leave adhesive residue on the substrate and may result in both the label and the substrate being damaged. Permanent adhesives are chosen for use in labels that need to remain on an item for a sustained period of time, so that information remains on or with an item permanently.
Examples include Tracking Labels, Asset ID Labels, Product Labels, Retail Labels, Address Labels, and Shipping Labels.
