Brady has announced its new ultra-durable black polyester labels (B-8117). These labels achieve the black color through the adhesive layer rather than the topcoat, which results in more robust color permanence. Since the color is sealed inside the label construction, color durability is dramatically increased, making it less likely to lose the black appearance over time.
“Brady’s new durable black polyester labels are ideal for regulatory labels on electrical components, finished goods, automotive labels, general ID and asset tracking,” says Jennifer Smith, regional product manager for Brady. “They provide the resilience to stand up to industrial electrical environments and keep labels readable for improved efficiency and safety.”
The powerful combination of this material’s topcoat and the R6800 ribbon produce superior print durability against both abrasions and harsh fluids, as well as consistently achieves Barcode Grade B or greater.

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

One key takeaway at the IEEE Rising Stars Conference was the pace of the event: fast, high-energy, and whirling—just as you’d expect from young people somewhere in the transition from teenager to adult. If their individual excitement about attending was like a photon of light energy, then over the course of the weekend, those photons aligned and collimated just as they would inside a laser chamber, resulting in a unified power and energy in the conference as everyone fell into phase with each other.
