TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is offering its SP self laminating polyester label as an ideal labeling solution for applications that can withstand temperatures from minus 40 ºC (minus 40 ºF) up to 150 C (302 ºF).


TE’s SP is a thermal transfer printable, low-profile translucent polyester film with a permanent acrylic adhesive. It is supplied with a white printable area, which is over-laminated upon application with the translucent portion of the label. This ‘self-laminating” feature better protects the printed area from exposure to oil, solvents, water and abrasion.


SP’s low-profile design provides conformability to wires and cables due to its label thickness of only 45μm (0.0018”). It is conformable to round, irregular or flexible surfaces and is ideal for wire and cable identification, including flat ribbon cables subject to repeated bending. SP is recommended for when maximum temperature resistance is essential.


SP labels are available in a range of sizes 12.7mm (0.5 inches) to 50.8mm (2.0 inches) wide and from 25.4mm (1.0 inch) to 151.0mm (5.94 inches) high. SP is supplied die-cut, in roll format and is available in white as a standard color.
