Published on June 13, 2022
Understandably, the aviation, aerospace and aircraft industries require precision, dependability and durability for all products and systems. Labels for aircraft and related equipment must comply with strict and regulated industry standards. Because of its ability to withstand drastic atmospheric changes and its superior resistance to harsh elements, polycarbonate labels are often used in the aviation, aerospace and aircraft industries.

Polycarbonate Benefits

Exceptionally Durable

The method of printing used to create these labels also help create tags that are rather impervious to scratches or scuffing. The sub-surface printing method used for these particular tags makes them ideal for use in areas where scratching, exposure to harsh substances and constant use is present. These labels are also resistant to a number of mild chemicals, making them great for use in industries that use such substances and in areas where there is exposure to harsh conditions.

Widely Specified

Polycarbonate is tough, versatile and resilient. This material is actually used for more than just labels, with items such as football helmets, safety glasses and windshields for aircraft. This very same resilience and toughness is what makes polycarbonate a great choice for those who need to have these qualities found in nameplates, control panels and labels.

Print Quality and Variable Data

STRYKER uses a digital four-color printing process which creates exceptional print quality and an unlimited amount of variable data options. Barcode labels are often given an alpha numeric serial number to give the object it is attached to a unique identifier. Polycarbonate is a valuable choice for these types of labeling needs.
