Bin Labels

Features

  • Pliable polyester ideal for curved drum surfaces
  • Specially formulated adhesive ideally suited to adhere to poyethylene and polypropylene surfaces
  • Subsurface printing shields your copy from the abuses of rigorous cleanings and abrasion that shipping containers endure

Ensure the proper tracking and return of your reusable containers with a product that was specifically designed for that application. Metalcraft Polyester Bin Labels are made of a durable, pliable polyester - ideal for curved drum surfaces - with an adhesive specially formulated for polyethylene or polypropylene reusable containers.

In addition, subsurface printing protects the logos, copy, and bar code against extreme solvents, caustics, acids, and moderate abrasion. This unique process eliminates the need for a laminate thereby eliminating the additional cost for the laminate as well as the possibility of delamination.

Promote your company by tracking your reusable containers with a label that sports your company name or logo. Metalcraft's digital printing process ensures even the most detailed logo will look crisp and clean. 

Standard colors available include black, red, yellow, green or blue with custom colors available at no additional charge.
