Cryogenic Labels

Cryogenic Label Overview

Cryogenics Product Overview

Cryogenic Labeling is the function and performance of a label at a below freezing temperature. Most cryogenic labels are engineered with a specific cryogenic storage stage in mind. It is important to select labels that can withstand your storage temperatures as well as other temperature excursions and processes. Cryogenic temperatures can be between (-90°C to -70°C) but while in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen can reach as low as (-135°C to -190°C), to the thaw temperatures.

Cryogenic temperatures present many challenges such as a labels being unable to adhere over frost. The label must be chemical resistant and the inks cannot smear or scratch off the label. Another difficulty is labeling at room temperature and immediately putting it into cryogenic temperatures. Moreover, will the label adhere to the product without flagging while being frozen in cryogenic temperatures? Many solutions to these challenges have been developed for use in laboratories; however, as cryogenic products become commercialized there are very limited reliable secondary packaging suppliers. That’s where CCL Healthcare thrives. We are leaders in commercialized cryogenic labeling. Our cryogenic labeling engineers have thoroughly tested materials and adhesives to find the right cryogenic solutions for your labeling and packaging requirements.
