- These self-adhesive labels are supplied on A4 sheets of matt white polypropylene with a permanent waterproof adhesive and are suitable for use with inkjet printers. Our polypropylene labels are usually chosen for applications that require durable waterproof labels that can be printed with an inkjet printer. Standard inkjet labels tend not to be used as waterproof labels because most inkjet inks are water-based – and run or smudge when wet. Our polypropylene inkjet labels, however, have a special top coating that helps ink to dry efficiently and fixes print in place while also acting as a protective (waterproof) barrier for that print.
- A label’s adhesion depends on four factors; the strength of the adhesive, the length of time the label is stuck onto an item, the temperature, and the surface onto which the label is applied. These four factors interact with each other, so we advise that customers request a sample to test in their own unique conditions. We also supply a range of Super Tack labels, which are made with our strongest permanent adhesive yet.
- Long life tracking labels – the polypropylene and marine adhesive are both highly durable materials, which means that these inkjet labels are perfect for long life applications, such as tracking labels. They can be used to add address labels or shipping labels onto items that may be sent long distance (including overseas) or exposed to damp conditions. They can also add tracking information onto items that will be transported and/or put into storage. These permanent labels can be printed with identifying information, delivery or storage instructions, or tracking information stored in the form of a barcode or QR code.
- Outdoor or marine conditions – in meeting the requirements of the BS5609 part 2 standard for marine immersion, these waterproof labels can be used for applications that involve exposure to outdoor and/or marine conditions. Common examples of applications that require durable waterproof labels include labelling chemicals, medical and laboratory supplies, kitchen and bathroom, products, gardening products and equipment, swimming pools, equipment rental facilities, marinas, water sports companies, landscaping and gardening companies, construction and maintenance companies, and any situation where identifying information, instructions, or signs need to remain firmly in place even under challenging (and variable) conditions.
- Curved and uneven surfaces – these sticky labels were designed for adding health and safety warnings and identifying information to curved chemical drums. The flexibility of the polypropylene and the strength of the marine adhesive means that these waterproof labels are well suited to labelling all kinds of curved objects, including containers such as bottles and jars.
- Retail labels – polypropylene inkjet labels can be used to add product information, company details, prices, or special features and promotions onto products, including items that have unusually shaped packaging or packaging that is made with unusual materials. They are also ideal for use in external shop displays or garden centres, as product labels on bathroom and kitchen products, or for any products that are intended for outdoor use and/or storage.

When I first used these labels I thought...
When I first used these labels I thought I had found a solution to my problem. I needed a water and oil proof label that could be printed on an inkjet printer. Unfortunately, over time these labels don't live up to their waterproof claim and the ink has smudged and run when the product is used in a number of different environments. They are great labels in every other way and provide a good quality finish. They are just not waterproof or oil proof.Anonymous
