Application and use

The matt surface of HERMA PE transparent matt offers an excellent quality of the imprint in all traditional printing methods.
Thetransparent surface coat has been particularly designed for imprint with thermo transfer printers after production and gives excellent printing results. For this application we recommend wax/resin or resin ribbons.

HERMA PE transparent matt is perfect for the production of optically pretentious labels. For recycling reasons these labels are preferably used on PE surfaces.

Thanks to the high flexibility of this material even curved surfaces may be labelled without any problems.
