Get organised quickly and easily at home and at work with Brother’s P-Touch range of electronic labellers, which allow you to create professional, long-lasting and durable labels that are resistant to marks, rips, tears and water.
Laminated tape sticks to virtually any surface and is durable enough to withstand scrapes and abrasions. Because it is water resistant, it can be used outdoors, as well as indoors. It shrugs off spills of any kind, from water to oil to chemicals, and it won't fade under harsh UV rays. It also stays on in hot and cold environments from freezers to microwaves.
This tape is made from cloth so that after letters are printed on it, an iron can be used to stick this tape to another piece of cloth. Clothing with tape stuck to it can be dry-cleaned.
This tape has a special adhesive that leaves a checkerboard pattern when the label is peeled off. It is ideal for labels that must not be peeled off, such as those affixed to company assets.
Flexible ID Tapes
This specially designed tape is perfect for wire wrapping, cabling and other curved surfaces, making it suitable for telecom and datacom applications.
This tape has a background that stands out more than standard coloured tape and is very eye-catching. It is ideal for uses such as warning and instruction labels in factories and advertising labels in stores.
Extra Strength Tapes
Extra strength adhesive laminated tapes are perfect for textured and hard to stick surfaces. Extra strength industrial tape has up to twice the adhesive strength of regular P-touch Tape. It can be used on a much wider range of surfaces and materials, and it is ideal for harsh environments and textured surfaces.
Tapes come in six sizes, as shown in the diagram above
Brother's P-Touch TZ tapes are the only tapes available that have a unique lamination to make labels heat, cold, water, chemical and fade resistant. The labels are extremely durable, have a professional finish and will outlast other labels, giving you extra flexibility in your organising system, be it at the campsite, in the office or around the warehouse.
Types of Lamination
The laminated tape structure consists of six layers of material that are surprisingly thin, yet strong. Unlike most label-makers on the market, P-touch labellers print on the underside of the laminate, sandwiching text between two layers of film and making the characters virtually indestructible.
After 50 round-trip passes with a 1kg weighted sand eraser, Brother laminated tapes came up only slightly scratched, with the characters underneath completely unaffected.
Chemicals and Water
After being bathed in a variety of materials for two hours, Brother laminated tapes still managed to remain affixed to their surfaces with little damage. Even chemical spills, if wiped up quickly, result in minimal damage.
After testing by an official Japanese government food research laboratory, Brother tapes met the food sanitation law of Japan and were deemed to be safe for use near food. Brother laminated tapes also passed skin irritation tests.
Brother’s P-touch tapes retain their integrity even at extremely high temperatures. When tested, tapes began to decompose only once the temperature reached 365°C. In adhesion tests conducted at cold temperatures, the tapes did not experience any adhesive strength problems or changes to the ink or tape, even at -50°C.
In tests performed to simulate a year of outdoor conditions, ink remained unchanged and all characters were completely legible. Brother laminated tapes were attached to coated metal plates and placed in a fade-inducing chamber at 83°C for 100 hours to simulate a year in a sunny environment. Then they were placed in a chamber at 63°C for 400 hours to simulate a year in heat and light, as well as water. Only yellow tapes showed significant signs of fading, while other tapes showed little sign of fading that was visible to the eye. This fade resistance reduces the need to reproduce labels regularly and is convenient for environments where legibility over time is important.
In tests performed by Brother, white P-Touch tapes with black characters began to lose their electric resistance at an applied voltage of 8kv, and lost their resistance entirely at 11kv. Most other colour variations will have the same resistance.
Laminated Industrial Tape Adhesive Strength
Brother’s industrial tapes have twice the adhesive strength of our regular tapes, allowing them to be used on a much wider range of materials and under more extreme conditions.
Laminated Tape Adhesive Strength
Brother laminated tapes will adhere to almost any surface, including stainless steel, glass, PVC, acrylic, polypropylene and polyester-coated wood. The tapes stand up to hot, cold and humid conditions, and even adhere better when heated. Smooth, rough, flat or rounded surfaces pose no problem for Brother laminated tapes.
Brother labels are the quick and easy solution for getting organised at home, school or the office. Used together with our P-Touch labellers, Brother labels are perfect for creating signs, shelf tags, name badges or pretty much anything that requires labelling.
Resistant to water, smudges, stains, streaks, marks, rips, fading and peeling, Brother labels are incredibly versatile and will stand up to the toughest treatment. And since they adhere to almost any surface, they can be used practically everywhere-even around the garden!
