02-09-2019 | TE Connectivity | Subs & Systems

TE Connectivity has issued the TKM and BKM series of hand-writeable, self-laminating labels. The products are self-writable clear vinyl film with a permanent acrylic adhesive. They are furnished with a white hand writable area which is over-laminated upon application using the clear portion of the label. The labels are hand-writable which provides for on the spot labelling, protected by the self-laminating feature. These labels are offered in two formats. TKM is supplied in booklet form while BKM is supplied in sheet form.

“Self-laminating wraparound labels are ideal for identification of wires, cables and pipes,” said Robin Parella Gershkoff, TE product manager. “Also, TKM and BKM products are resistant to chemicals and frequent handling, making the labels ideal to use for job site installations. The series is engineered to withstand exposure to solvents, salts, alkalis and water, while still being free from cadmium, silicone and PTFE and is not electrically conductive.”

The labels can withstand temperatures of -30C (-22F) to 120C (248F).

The labels are free of SVHC, in line with the company’s compliance with the European Community’s REACH legislation.
