XyliTUFF™ Labels are ideal for the identification of tissue cassettes and microscope slides in cytology and histology labs. The labels and the printed information are resistant to xylene, toluene, alcohols, hexane, acetone, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), acetonitrile (ACN) and other solvents. Intended for the use on flat surfaces. Can be printed with all major brands of thermal transfer barcode printers using our TC-CLASS xylene resistant ribbons (XAR class of ribbons for CognitiveTPG Cxi 2-inch printer).
- Able to withstand exposure and long-term immersion in harsh chemicals and solvents.
- Printable with all major thermal-transfer printer brands.
- Perfect for hard to label smooth surface tissue cassettes and other flat surfaces.
For the best adherence and chemical resistance, they are recommended to be used in combination with Simport smooth surface cassettes #M405-2, M406-2 and M407-2. When used on these cassettes, they can withstand solvent and chemical exposures in:
- Xylene: 2 hours
- Ethanol 100%: 8 hours
- Hot Paraffin Wax: 2 hours
Preliminary testing is strongly recommended including for use in automated vacuum tissue processors.
