Blackout Steri-ThermoTAG™ – Autoclave-Resistant Cover-Up Thermal-Transfer Labels

  • Unique opaque design allows the labels to permanently obscure all pre-existing information
  • Withstand sterilization in steam autoclaves and dry heat ovens
  • Compatible with all major thermal-transfer barcode printers

Autoclave-resistant blackout labels, designed for high-temperature as well as dry heat and steam sterilization applications. They have a strong permanent adhesive to ensure these cover-up autoclave-resistant labels won’t peel or wrinkle, even at elevated temperatures up to +150°C (+302°F). These labels are compatible with a range of materials, including metal (stainless steel), glass (Pyrex), and plastic (Polypropylene), and can adhere strongly to both flat and curved surfaces.

The labels have a unique opaque design, allowing them to permanently block-out previously printed information, including pre-existing text, serialized numbers, and barcodes. Thermal-transfer printable, these blackout autoclave-resistant labels are ideal for bags and containers marked with sensitive or confidential information that must be autoclaved before disposal, such as biohazard and radioactive material.
