PHARMcal® CryoFLEX™ 000301 (CryoFLEX™ PPC)

Features & Benefits

  • 2.0 mil gloss topcoated clear polypropylene
  • Ideal for cryogenic specimen storage and testing applications: -112°F (-80°C) to 212°F (100°C)
  • Survives dry ice storage and transportation conditions
  • Topcoat optimizes printability via narrow-format UV inkjet, flexographic, UV screen, UV letterpress, UV offset, thermal transfer, and hot stamping
  • High-performance permanent acrylic adhesive provides a good bond to low- and high-surface energy plastics, and glass for reliable performance in extreme cold temperatures
  • Backed with a 50 lb. bleached kraft release liner ideal for roll-form converting
  • Liner is suitable for optical sensing on most thermal transfer printers
  • 6-month change notification

Recommendations: Since laboratory storage/test conditions and procedures can vary significantly, be sure to thoroughly test the labels in the intended process/application environment. To achieve ultimate adhesion in cryogenic conditions, labels should be applied at room temperature.
“Fit-for-use” testing is recommended under actual application conditions.
