Cryogenic Labeling Overview
What are Cryogenics Labels?
Cryogenic labels involve designing and producing labels that can function and perform effectively at below-freezing temperatures. Typically, labels are engineered with a specific cryogenic storage stage in mind. It is essential to select labels that can withstand the storage temperatures and other temperature excursions and processes. Cryogenic temperatures can range from -90°C to -70°C and can drop as low as -135°C to -190°C in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen, up to the thaw temperatures.
Numerous challenges come with cryogenic temperatures, such as labels being unable to adhere to frost and the inks smearing or scratching off the label. Additionally, labeling at room temperature and immediately placing it into cryogenic temperatures can cause the label to flag. Laboratories have developed several solutions to these challenges, but reliable secondary packaging suppliers for commercialized cryogenic products are limited. This is where CCL Healthcare excels as a leader in commercialized cryogenic labeling. Our team of cryogenic labeling engineers has rigorously tested materials and adhesives to provide the best cryogenic solutions for your labeling and packaging requirements.
