tesa® 6940 Rapid Laser-Label

High-Speed markable and self-adhesive

tesa® 6940 is a double layer, brittle acrylic film. Marking and cutting are achieved by laser in one step, which makes it possible to realize any desirable label variation and format using only one material. This high performance product is used as a tamper evident identification label over the entire lifetime of a product and also as a data carrier system for intelligent in-process steering.
