Thanks for your comment Jennifer!

Usually when there is an issue with a white paper backing left behind the culprit is a low grade rubber based adhesive.  These adhesives are an excellent choice from a price standpoint but quickly set up especially when exposed to UV light.  An example we can all relate to would be masking tapes that get applied to a window.  If left to sit for a few days, they're just about impossible to remove cleanly.

As far as sticky residue being left behind, that is usually one of two issues.  The first would be a low grade (rubber or acrylic) adhesive that has been applied to a plastic surface.  The same plasticizers that make plastic flexible begin to migrate out of the binder and into the adhesive.  A good example would be a clear transparent tape applied to the cover of a vinyl binder.  After a while the adhesive becomes gooey and leaves behind a residue when removed.  The second issue usually results from achieving a good bond using an acrylic adhesive which simply doesn't allow the label to separate cleanly from the affixed surface.

At Mcloone we generally hear "I want my label to stick no matter what!" but when a customer needs a removable label we utilize 3M adhesives specially formulated for removability without residual residue.   If you have any additional questions we would love to discuss them with you!  Call 800-624-6641 to speak with a member of our customer care team. --Karen

Nice post! Aside from knowing the price for labels, I knew that you should also consider other factors like the format. I always use euroffice avery labels coz its easy to use with my printer.

Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
While risk management sounds like one activity, in order to be conducted effectively, it must be broken down into three sub-components: risk assessment, risk monitoring, and response planning.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
To those who have not stepped into additive manufacturing, get involved as soon as possible. This is for the benefit of your company. When the new innovations come out, you want to be ready to take advantage of them immediately, and that takes knowledge.
Design engineers will feel like kids in a candy store with the Cypress Semiconductor BLE Pioneer Kit. The development kit for low-power sensor-based systems is full of wireless wonder and exploration.
