Solution Spotlight: FreezerBondz™ Labels

The Challenge

Sometimes you just need a label to stick, even on frosted / frozen vials, tubes and canes.

The Solution

Our B-492 FreezerBondz Label can be applied to frozen surfaces including glass and polypropylene stored in liquid nitrogen. Plus, B-492 offers excellent print smudge resistance, solvent resistance when using the Brady Series R6400 Ribbon, and excellent low temperature performance. This label is ideal for common laboratory environments such as liquid nitrogen and freezer applications.

Technical Data Sheet: B-492 FreezerBondz Labels

Key performance attributes:

These labels are proven to stand up, even when applied to surfaces that were stored for 24 hours in either liquid nitrogen at -320°F (-196°C) or in a freezer at -112°F (-80°C). During testing, the printed B-492 samples were laminated immediately upon the removal of the surfaces from liquid nitrogen or freezer.

There was no visible effect on the printed image on the label when tested against:

Freezer

The test method included three cycles of 16 hours at -112°F (-80°C) and eight hours at room temperature. No visible effects when applied to glass test tubes with a gap, polypropylene tubes/vials with a gap, glass microscope slides, large and small straws, flat polypropylene, aluminum foil and storage boxes made of stainless steel, aluminum and cardboard.

Freezer to boiling water

The test method included one hour at -112°F (-80°C) then placed in boiling water 212°F (100°C) for 10 minutes. No visible effects when applied to glass test tubes with a gap, polypropylene tubes/vials with a ⅛-in. overlap, glass microscope slides, flat polypropylene and aluminum foil.

Liquid nitrogen

The test method included three cycles of four hours at -320°F (-196°C) and 20 hours at room temperature. No visible effects when applied to glass test tubes with a ⅛-in. overlap, polypropylene tubes/vials when applied with a ⅛-in. overlap, glass microscope slides, large and small straws, aluminum foil and cardboard storage boxes.
