Polyonics XF-546 is a polyimide label material with a permanent pressure silicone adhesive and a high opacity, medium gloss white topcoat specifically designed for thermal transfer printing. The printed polyimide label resists smearing, so no labels will have to be replaced or reprinted, speeding up the process.
The printed polyimide label resists smearing, even when the board and label are directly removed from a reflow or wave solder environment. When matched with the appropriate ink ribbon the labels are compatible with all of the leading cleaning chemistries on the market today so they can be cleaned right along with the board, saving time.
Each polyimide label produced has excellent resistance to harsh fluxes, cleaners, saponifiers, and wave solder environments, and resists all commonly used methods of cleaning Additionally, the labels can withstand process temperatures up to 1,000�F (538�C), depending on time exposure.
The labels are approved for lead-free applications, and have high PCS and barcode label first read rates.
