Tactile labels with raised information like braille fonts or warning signs

The tactile labels carry palpable braille fonts and warning symbols. They serve people with a visual impairment as an orientation help and provide important information. Transparent tactile labels can be applied additionally and subsequently on the existing labels or already imprinted packaging. The labels will be adjusted to the customer’s requirements and applications, and must meet the standard EN ISO 11683 for the packaging and containers of hazardous materials.

Examples

The key features of tactile labels

  • Mostly, the tactile labels transport safety relevant information to people with visual impairment
  • High resistance when in contact with chemicals and solvents
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Suitable for the standard-compliant labeling in accordance with EN ISO 1183
  • Very high adhesive power of the labels also on difficult substrates
  • Numerous special materials by Avery, 3M, Flexcon, and Tesa available from stock
  • Also producible in individual formats and special forms as a basis label

Functions and advantages – precisely tailored to your requirements for the labeling

The tactile labels provide important information and offer security. The labels offer the best possible flexibility and will be individually adjusted to the customer’s requirements. This happens by using suitable special materials of leading manufacturers, individual die-cutting forms, and premium adhesives.

Our upscale and accurate processing with most modern die-cutting technologies guarantees the highest precision and reliability for the label application. Thus even palpable labels with adhesives which are difficult to process can be processed mechanically very well, which increases the user efficiency in the long term.
