Outdoor labeling requires TTR printing that can withstand weather conditions, hot or cold, rain or shine. These applications also have to hold up to other factors such as abrasions and solvents found in pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. No matter what the extreme, an extremely durable ribbon is needed.

DNP wax/resin is the solution

Compliance labels for outdoor power equipment carry critical information related to a product’s fulfillment of manufacturing standards. Unreadable or missing warning labels means the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is not in compliance with regulatory and recommended standards developed by industry organizations including the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and more. The primary purpose of the labels is to ensure that consumers have immediate access to information about proper and safe use, handling, and storage of these products.

Compliance labels must remain securely in place, and it is essential for consumer safety that the printed information remain legible throughout the useful life of the equipment. Any blemish can change consumer perception of quality and expose OEMs to liability if a warning label becomes difficult to read.

Labels on outdoor equipment also identify the product and its manufacturer and include graphic images that reinforce product branding and quality. They also convey information regarding product model numbers and specifications, which are important to retailers when identifying and tracking inventory.

Printing labels for outdoor equipment is challenging for multiple reasons. The printed labels must be able to withstand abrasion and scratching during use, cleaning, and storage. They must also endure prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, which can cause fading or label surfaces to yellow, crack and disintegrate. In addition, labels must be able to withstand extreme temperatures, chemicals, and solvents.

MP Mid Premium Wax/Resin is an excellent choice for extreme TTR applications due to its exceptional resistance to abrasion and solvents. It is an economical wax/resin that prints deep black barcodes, delivering excellent small character clarity and edge definition. MP Mid is designed to print on a wide variety of receiving materials, even floodcoats and varnishes.

When a leading manufacturer of lawn mower engines approached a DNP partner with an application for product identification, MP Mid saved the day. The wax/resin provided sharp, easily readable images on their varnish top-coated synthetic substrate. MP Mid’s durability also meant it could stand up to the harsh environment of the application, locking in the business for DNP’s partner and providing a lasting solution for the manufacturer.
