What is the difference between general grade stickers? And the grade for digital printing?

We have invented and produced grade stickers for printing on digital machines, both Dry-Toner and Indigo systems. Distributed as a new product group. which for the structure of each printer system Some systems use high temperatures to cause the toner to adhere to the substrate. Some systems require a special surface coating (Top Coating) to provide beautiful print quality.

in terms of color gamut and increase the adhesion of printing ink to the substrate better. Therefore, the company Therefore, we have designed a new product using raw materials for a particular printer. different from the general grades

Distribution in the market This is the reason why customers must use ThaiKK's stickers. that is a grade for digital printers

  1. Special adhesive formula for use with high heat applications.
  2. special backing paper with smoothness and strength
  3. beautiful print
  4. There are a variety of product types.

What is the difference between permanent adhesive labels and removable adhesives?

permanent adhesive label Labels that use adhesive that is firmly attached, durable throughout the service life. And if you want to peel the label off, it may cause damage to the label, such as torn, torn.
Adhesive removable labels Adhesive labels that can be peeled off the surface to be applied. without leaving adhesive residue But it is not suitable for jobs that require more than 1 peeling and sticking.

Considerations for choosing removable adhesive labels

  • Be sure that the surface of the material to be applied has enough surface energy to be attached to the label. That is to say, some materials, such as cardboard, have low surface energy values. which the label will not be able to stick
  • Label size is very important with removable adhesives. It is necessary that the surface material used must be strong enough. to prevent the label from tearing when peeling off
  • For that small label Must take into account the softness of the label surface. and the curvature of the workpiece to be attached Because the viscosity of removable glue is lower than that of permanent glue, if the label surface is not soft enough or too much curvature will make the label stick and reveal It is recommended to test in real-world conditions before purchasing.

Stickers for special applications ?

Special features such as heat resistance, sun resistance, rain resistance, moisture resistance or chemical resistance. which each type of sticker will have different appropriateness, for example

  • If use is exposed to moisture It is necessary to use paper that is highly resistant to water seepage. or film type stickers or use surface coating after printing
  • If you want to use in conditions that are exposed to sunlight, for a long time, such as outdoor billboards A qualified adhesive is required for outdoor use. Including the type of surface must be suitable for the above applications as well. For example, graphics or advertising products will have a grade for outdoor 1 year, 3 years or 5 years, etc.
  • If it is used at a high temperature of more than 90 degrees Celsius, acrylic solvent adhesive with polyester film (PET) would be most suitable.

What is PBS?

PBS (Poly Butylene Succinate) is a type of bioplastic that is extracted from nature such as corn, cassava, sugar cane and is biodegradable 100% (compostable 100%).


  • Have a long service life
  • Cheap price
  • Hard to decompose (takes 100 years)
  • Causing a waste that is difficult to dispose of
  • Not environmentally friendly

Bioplastics (PBS)

  • Have a short lifespan
  • Expensive
  • Biodegradable in a short time (6-8 months)
  • Easy to get rid of and increase soil fertility (in the case of landfills)
  • Environmentally friendly

How does the surface of the material affect?

The component of the surface or material to be labeled. It has a significant effect on the strength or adhesion between the material and the label. Therefore, it is wise to classify the type of material surface well. to be able to select the appropriate label type

Define the word plastic generally thought enough but in fact There are different types of plastics. Each type requires a different level of label stickiness (adhesive). by the plastics that are available in the market It is divided into the following types:

Type of plastic

  • Polyethylene Terephthalate
  • High Density Polyethylene
  • Vinyl (Polyviny Chloridel)
  • Low Density Polyethylene
  • Ploypropylene
  • Polystyrene
  • Multi-Resin & Other Plastics

on materials with low surface energy The higher the value of the adhesive toughness is required. so that the label can stick to the surface for a long time

Surface characteristics of the material How does it affect?

rough surface Will affect the adhesion between the glue and the surface. The adhesive will not be able to touch the 100% area of the rough surface. This will make the adhesion of the label not as good as it should, the surface contact is less; have less adhesion; non sticky glue

Therefore, for surfaces with roughness The glue used must have a high toughness. It can provide the highest ductility on the smallest contact surfaces. and can flow over rough surfaces
