Autoclavable polyester films

Autoclavable polyester films

The pressurised steam used in the autoclaving process is amongst the most dependable method of sterilizing laboratory and surgical equipment. However, the extra pressure in an autoclave means that water boils at a higher temperature than normal boiling point – around 121°C – creating an extremely harsh environment for identification labelling. Our autoclavable polyester films can withstand these high temperatures without risk of peeling off.

These films can be used to produce labels of exceptional transparency and high adhesion to curved surfaces, even of small diameter containers. These properties enable clear and durable labelling of instruments and containers, including ampules, syringes and test tubes.
