You should choose one depending on your product.

Surface Finish For Metal Adhesive Labels

Surface finishes are important for any metal. Surface finishes improve the look of the metal and also provide additional care to the metal surface.

The surface finishes you can use for metal adhesive labels include;

  • Matte finish. This finish shows little or sometimes no sheen and this is because it is non-reflective.
  • Satin finishes. A satin finish is a semi-reflective lustrous finish. It is a versatile finish that does not fade quickly.
  • Gloss finish. This is the most reflective of all the surface finishes. It is the shiniest, easiest to clean, very durable, and strongest finish.
  • Brushed finish. This is where the metal label is polished to look like stainless steel.
Best Adhesive For Metal Labels

An adhesive is any substance that you can use to join together parts that you want to be attached.

The best adhesive for the metal label in the market include;

  • Epoxy metal glue – epoxy is one of the best metal glues available worldwide. Epoxy exists in two parts; a hardener and resin.

You should mix the two parts equally to achieve the best results. Epoxy metal glue forms a very strong bond with the metal, and it has amazing properties such as versatility, resistance to electricity, it is waterproof and it resists temperature.

  • Cyanoacrylates – this type of adhesive is commonly referred to as super glue for metals.

Cyanoacrylates are quite common and you can use them for general household applications.

Cyanoacrylates do not form powerful bonds.

This, therefore, means they are recommended for small metal-to-metal attachments or you can use them for repairs.

It is also not recommended to use them for outdoor applications since they do not have excellent water resistance.

  • Polyurethane glue – polyurethane glue does not come close to epoxy when it comes to strong bonds, but it is better than cyanoacrylates.

Polyurethane boasts properties such as good resistance to water and UV. This means you can use it for outdoor applications.

Are Metal Adhesive Labels Durable

Metal adhesive labels are extremely durable. Most of them can last for over twenty years and over.

Their durability is highly attributed to the fact that they have excellent resistance to extreme temperatures, abrasion, chemicals, solvents, and any other contaminants.

The metal adhesive labels also have markings that are also long-lasting and do not fade even after a lot of years.
