These compostable direct thermal labels do not have a protective top coat. This is to ensure that the labels are non-toxic and are aligned with compostability requirements. A top coating helps prevents high sensitivity but it also prevents micro-organisms entering the material which are necessary for efficient composting. Be aware that the material may receive marks due to scuffing, abrasion, and handling.
Each individual component (facestock and adhesive) of these labels is compostable, the adhesive is also compatible with recycling. Label backing liners are not compostable, please re-use where appropriate.
Elevate Packaging’s compostable labels and adhesive are vegan and non-GMO. They do not contain harmful chemicals such as bisphenol (including BPA and over a dozen other derivatives), PFAS, or phthalates.
We recommend testing in the type of environment and with expected use from start to finish to be certain the material meets all requirements and expectations before purchase.
