Lecta expands its offering of Adestor self-adhesive products for the healthcare industry with the launch of Adestor Laser 60 LB DfE.
Hospitals and laboratories handle chemical samples and tests that require a high degree of traceability to ensure the monitoring of all the coded data on test tubes. The identification of the containers, through variable labeling, requires label integrity, both in terms of adhesion and data legibility.
The new Adestor Laser 60 LB DfE facestock, with greater environmental efficiency, provides excellent performance for all small-diameter labeling applications used in the most frequently performed analysis processes in laboratories. This new product is also ideally suited to different variable data printing technologies.
With this launch, Lecta continues to develop within its Adestor brand a specialized offer of more sustainable pressure-sensitive materials for digital or variable data printing, in response to the growing demand for environmentally friendly products intended for hospitals and labs.
