3M™ Thermal Transfer Label Material 7879 is a durable silver polyester label stock that is designed for use in demanding label applications. It utilizes 3M™ Adhesive 350 that offers excellent chemical resistance and holding strength even at high temperatures.
Excellent chemical resistance and holding strength even at high temperatures
Permanently bonds to high surface energy (HSE) and low surface energy (LSE) plastics, textured and contoured surfaces, powder coatings and slightly oily metals
Topcoated to provide the advantages of matte coating with a surface that is smooth enough for thermal transfer printing
Printable by all standard roll processing methods
UL listing includes approval for use on powder coated surfaces
Offers Long Term Durability and Adhesion
3M™ Thermal Transfer Label Materials 7879 are constructed with .0033 inch (84 microns) silver polyester matte facestock, 3M™ Adhesive 350 and a 55# Densified Kraft liner. The facestock is topcoated to provide the advantages of matte coating with a surface that is smooth enough for thermal transfer printing. It is printable by all standard roll processing methods including flexography, hot stamp, letterpress, and screen printing. The matte coating resists degradation from scuffing, chemicals, moisture, and wide temperature fluctuations. It also provides improved ink anchorage for traditional forms of press printing.

Acrylic Adhesive Ideal for Powder Coatings, LSE Plastics and Oily Metals
3M™ Adhesive 350 permanently bonds to high surface energy (HSE) and low surface energy (LSE) plastics, textured and contoured surfaces, powder coatings, and slightly oily metals. It has excellent chemical and solvent resistance and holding strength at temperatures from -40°F to 300°F (-40°C to 149°C). Thick adhesive caliper provides for stronger bond on textured surface. UL listing includes approval for use on powder coated surfaces.
