Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/09/2017 -- Pressure sensitive labels are ubiquitous products that are used in a large number of common goods. Depending on the type of adhesive used, pressure sensitive paper can adhere to most surfaces made from plastic, metal, and ceramic materials. Currently, pressure sensitive labels account for more than 80% share of the labelling market. The materials generally used to produce pressure sensitive labels are paper, plastics, latex, and foil. Pressure sensitive paper is primarily used for labelling applications and provides information about a particular product regarding its manufacturer, application, usage instructions, and disposal.

Pressure sensitive paper does not require water, heat, or solvent in order to activate. A light to moderate pressure is sufficient for its application onto the surface of a product. Pressure sensitive paper rolls are usually supplied in the form of rolls and are peeled off and pressed onto a product by hand or a machine.
