Features and difficulties in the production of labels for medicines, pharma stickers. The main problem in the production of labels for medical products and health products is that the products themselves are, in most cases, very small. Accordingly, the area for applying graphic and text information is minimal. Yes, if these are labels for bottles of iodine, medical sports and the like, then there are no particular problems. But when you need to create a label for small ampoules, which are sometimes even less than a centimetre in diameter, the work becomes much more complicated. Although modern equipment allows you to print even them, while guaranteeing high quality of application.
All medicines and many pharma products are sterilized without fail after they are packaged and labeled. In this case, the material lends itself to strong influence of hot steam, electron beams and other influencing factors. This implies the need to use high strength and wear resistant materials. If you sacrifice the quality of the base material, then the pharma, medical product label can completely lose its presentation. The optimal material is a polymer film that is not afraid of exposure to steam and high temperatures.
Most of modern pharmaceutical companies use pre-printed pharma labels. This allows the manufacturer to apply specific variable information to the finished label, rather than ordering a print in small batches. Variable information may include production date, storage terms and conditions, drug name, batch number, bar codes. The requirements for the quality of pharma and medical labels are largely dictated by the storage conditions. While most medicines can be stored at temperatures slightly below room temperature and with normal humidity, some require special conditions. For example, low temperature. Accordingly, if the drug is removed from the refrigerator compartment, condensation forms on its surface. In this case, using paper labels is not the best solution. The label simply loses its properties, peels off, and the paint can float a lot. In this case, it is most rational to use polymeric materials. The exceptional characteristics of the polymer film allow it to be used as a label material in all conditions. The medical label must be informative. This is a key requirement and must be followed by every modern manufacturer.
