Fine Cut Group’s range of laboratory labels target almost every application within the typical laboratory environment. The company offers cryogenic and freezer resistant labels, solvent proof coatings, autoclave adhesives and polyesters. Labels can be supplied either bespoke or blank, suitable for in house printing.

The material of choice for laboratory labels is polyester, combined with the right adhesive This robust material is designed to last with many applications within the laboratory. Resistant to solvents and chemicals, the advanced surface coatings are smudge resistant ensuring long term legibility.
The adhesive is paramount - a label must withstand multiple handling and processes and retain its structure through batch testing and tough environments.
