Freezer Adhesive Labels
Labels that are applied in freezer conditions

Freezer Labels for Frozen Temperatures This includes all temperatures below 32°F and subzero temperatures in particular. Products like ice cream and certain medical materials need to be stored in a freezer or cryogenic settings. The freezer grade formula of the hot rubber adhesive can be applied at -15°F and maintains its stick in the temperature range of -65°F to 120°F.

All-Temperature Labels for Cold Temperatures When manufactured with hot melt rubber adhesive, these labels can be applied between 35°F and 120°F and can withstand a temperature range of 0°F to 120°F. When the labels are made with an emulsion acrylic adhesive, they can be applied in temperatures as low as 0°F and can continue to work in settings -65°F to 200°F.  Due to the lower initial tack, they can have difficulty with frosty surfaces.

Stock Freezer Adhesive Labels Most of our common and lowest price thermal labels have freezer all temperature adhesive. Find them at Stock Freezer Adhesive Labels.


It's not just the adhesive- Frozen products and the cardboard boxes they are stored in endure a harsh environment while in the freezer and brutal condesation after they are removed. If your labels are failing it's because you aren't using the proper combinations of adhesive, face stock.

Thermal Transfer Freezer Adhesive Labels & Ribbons
If you are using thermal transfer labels, the proper thermal ribbon is important in these conditions. A premium grade wax is recommended for paper and a wax/resin or full resin is needed for synthetic labels with freezer adhesive. We can ship free test samples for your application.
