Reliable tyre labels
With respect to vehicle tyre labelling, we offer Extra Tack Labels (ETL) specially designed to that purpose and proven. The labels are made from white polypropylene film with printable surface coating and a very strong rubber-based adhesive. Special adhesive composition ensures excellent adhesion to curved and highly irregular surface of vehicle tyres, neglecting the adverse impact of surface pollutants, including agents promoting removal from the mould or ingredients migrating from the rubber. ETLs do not exert any adverse impact on the properties and performance of the labelled tyres. They can be used at temperatures from -20 to +70°C, and are applied at mininum 0°C. We also offer professional colour print on the labels using flexography.
Following the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU) 2020/740, vehicle tyres manufactured or marketed after 1 May 2021 must be marked with new labels. The objective of the new labelling system is to increase safety, health protection, and economic as well as environmental efficiency of road transport by providing end users with objective, reliable, and comparable information on tyres. This will enable them to choose tyres with the highest fuel efficiency, increased road safety, and lower noise emission.
The new label has a reduced number of classes, A to E and not A to F, noise emission provided in decibels as before, but also in classes A to C. Pictograms indicating increased tyre traction on snow and/or ice (the latter relating solely to passenger vehicle tyres) were introduced — depending on the tyre model, those will be four label versions. A QR code was added to the new labels which can be scanned to gain easy access to the European Product Registry for Energy Labelling (EPREL) where a downloadable product data sheet and tyre label will be available. Moreover, the extent of label use was expanded to the bus and truck tyres.
The new label components:
- Lower number of classes — from A to E
- Classes specifying loudness standard — from A to C
- Pictograms defining winter tyre properties
- QR code for data reading on mobile devices
- More transparent artwork
