Resin dome labels for all economy sectors
Paul Bennett, managing director of Fascia Graphics describes how dome labels have migrated from the automotive industry.
A favourite of the automotive industry due to their high gloss finish and durability, resin dome labels are regularly used on car and van components such as wheel trims, chassis, dashboards, gearsticks, radios and even key fobs.
But as these highly durable labels are perfect for enhancing branding due to their ability to show off an emblem or logo – they are now being used across a multitude of equipment from a wide range of industry sectors. For instance, it is now common place, to see resin dome labels on amusement or vending machines, audio visual products, computer and IT equipment, medical device labels, point of sale badging, and even for yacht emblems.
Many of the common uses include domed name badges, product identification, and corporate/product branding. The use of these labels is also becoming more prevalent for safety/user instructions and even bar coding.
Essentially, crystal-clear polyurethane is applied to the front face of the printed label this layer of clear resin then sets to form a lens or bubble over the graphic – which enhances the labels durability and protects it against UV degradation so the design will not fade or yellow when exposed to UV light. Resin dome labels can also be screen or digitally printed to almost any size or shape, utilising high quality vinyl, polyester or other required materials.
They are also highly customisable – with a full range of finishes available – from mirror silver and gold as well as numerous metallic finishes. The polyurethane dome also keeps the label colourfast, so the label never loses its eye catching appearance. At Fascia, we believe that resin dome labels are so durable that they are suitable for most situations including outdoor use where a high gloss finish can be maintained for many years. We also find that customers request the resin dome labels in a range of shapes and sizes, depending on their end use, and in an array of colours and metallics so that the overall custom-blend is unique to their corporate identity.
Other benefits of resin dome labels include:
Scratch and shatter proof they are a hard wearing and self-healing label, which means it is scratch and dent proof and looks as new for many years.
Water resistant the resin protects and seals the brand or emblem from water damage.
Self-adhesive a label can be applied to many different surfaces including rounded or curved.
Strong adhesion – and the self-adhesive backing can vary to suit many surfaces – including low energy surfaces, and surfaces which have a stippled texture
