TZe tapes are around 160 micro metres in thickness, but this varies slightly by tape type.
Tapes can be removed from most materials with relative ease leaving little or no adhesive on the material. Extreme heat, humidity and certain chemicals may result in some residual adhesive being left but this can be removed in most cases with ethanol.
The shelf life of an unused TZe tape is 15 months from production.
No chloride materials are used in the cassette case, tape or ink.
The following gases may be produced when labels are in a hot environment such as in front of an air conditioner: toluene, n-butanol, 2-ethylhexyl alcohol, butyl carbinol acetate. These levels are however, very low.
Submersion of TZe tapes in alcohol is not recommended for extended periods due to the possible deterioration of the tape adhesive.
Although there may be some halogen in TZe tapes, it is of a very low level making it safe to burn TZe tapes.
Since the tape liner itself is silicon coated on both sides, there is a chance that small amounts of silicon may remain on the adhesive layer underneath the label even after the liner is peeled off.
TZe tape uses acrylic based adhesive materials and do not include latex.
There is no lead in the cassette case, tape or ink.
We do not recommend TZe tapes for use on circuit boards due to the sensitivity of circuit boards to dust, static electricity and acid (although these are at very low levels in TZe tapes).
As adhesive materials used in our tapes are acrylic and weakly acid we do not recommend the use of TZe tapes on copper.
We recommend that TZe security tape is affixed for at least 24 hours in order to work effectively.
DK film labels are unaffected in temperatures ranging from -80°C to +80°C and DK paper labels are unaffected in temperatures ranging from -80°C to +60°C, with only slight discolouration occurring at +80°C. However, if you need labels for long-term use in extreme temperatures, it is suggested to use laminated labels.
DK film tapes adhere better and longer than paper tapes. The larger the diameter, the better the adhesion. For objects with smaller diameters, it is better to use TZe Flexible ID labels.
DK tapes are ideal for long-term indoor use and only for short-term outdoor use as they may be affected by fading outdoors. Because of this, it is recommended to use laminated labels outdoors.
In a test where DK film and paper labels were rubbed with or submerged in a variety of chemicals and water, they did not show major signs of damage (except in the cases of ethyl acetate and acetone). Some liquids caused slight discolouration but the text was still legible. For best results, use laminated labels whenever labels will be subjected to chemicals and water.
DK labels and tapes come in a wide offering of pre-sized, die-cut standard labels for a variety of common uses such as file folders, CD labelling, address labels and more. If you need labels that are different sizes, our selection of continuous tape labels is perfect for you.
