PPG launches new addition to its durable, printable label stock portfolio
Teslin label stock unites PPG’s premium label face stock with high-quality adhesives and liner materials to ensure that critical printed data remains protected on shipping labels.

PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries has launched a new portfolio of durable, printable and secure label stock, Teslin. This offering will help label converting customers leverage the unique properties of Teslin substrate globally by expanding the label options available to them.

Teslin substrate is a versatile synthetic paper developed by PPG that governments and companies in more than 90 countries specify for demanding print applications requiring exceptional durability and security.

Manufactured by PPG in Barberton, Ohio, Teslin substrate blends the versatility, convenience and colour reproduction of conventional pulp-based paper with the durability of a plastic. Teslin label stock is compatible with print technologies including inkjet, laser, thermal transfer and offset, and it locks inks and toners into its structure to protect printed label data from abrasion and tampering.

Waterproof and resistant to chemicals, solvents and tearing, Teslin label stock also withstands exposure to extreme temperatures. Additionally, it improves operating processes by offering bubble-free application and it reduces the potential for static discharge when label liners are peeled from label stock, a process known to ignite chemical and solvent vapours in certain manufacturing environments.

“Teslin substrate has always been regarded as a premium face stock because of its durability, print versatility and ability to secure printed data. We developed this supply option to ensure all regions of the globe have ready access to Teslin label stock so we can better meet our customers’ needs,” said Jason Depner, PPG global segment manager.
