3M 7847 Polyacrylic IUID Labels


  • The cast modified polyacrylate facestock has a matte surface that can be marked with a CO2 or YaG laser
  • Long-term durability
  • Excellent abrasion, temperature, chemical and environmental resistance
  • High-resolution, high-contrast label images
  • Excellent barcode readability
  • Permanent adhesion to LSE plastics, oily metals, powder coatings and textured surfaces

Our laser-etched 3M 7847 Polyacrylic IUID Labels provide an excellent alternative for applications that require high-contrast images, reliable readability, long-term durability and flexibility. Extremely resistant to thermal shock and temperature extremes. Polyacrylic UID Labels are virtually impervious to all but the most caustic chemicals. In the same family of plastics as Kevlar® and Lexan®, polyacrylic provides for a long-lasting, very robust asset tag. Polyacrylic material is easy to work with, and simple to train others how to apply it to a variety of surface types.
