Etching Ink

At Murrplastik Labelling, we print onto a wide selection of materials to develop cable tags, cable markers and cable or wire identification labels. We print to your numbers, letters or symbols to your specification using top quality etching ink. We offer two different approaches to marking our polycarbonate plastic labels and cable markers. These are inkjet printing and plotter technology. Both inkjet printing and the plotting process etch a specialist ink into the polycarbonate plastic label or tag.

Why we use polycarbonate plastic

Polycarbonate labels offer excellent resistance to water and smudging. They are the ideal choice when durability, strength and excellent printability are vital. They have an all-temperature adhesive with high initial tack on low-surface energy plastics, providing resilience outdoors for up to six months.
