Life of car battery labels is tricky as they have to cope with a range of challenges. Battery labels need to be resistant to corrosion from the acids and oils often associated with battery manufacturing, as well as to high temperature, abrasion, and chemicals. Not only does this ensure the integrity of the battery but also the safety of the consumer.
Another important topic is brand protection. For example, India estimates that 40% of automotive spare parts sold in its territory are counterfeit parts.
What is the value of digital printing?
- Adding security features for aftermarket protection
- The ability to print an unlimited number of label versions in small quantities for white labeling
- The capability of adding a lot of durable variable data, like a barcode for track and trace, symbols for universal waste and recycling, CE identification, etc.
The LABEL is printed on a Xeikon PX3000 press, with PantherCure UV inks and substrate Avery Dennison
