If you are on the lookout for a robust outdoor label or perhaps a more ‘delicate breath of nothing’ for your collection of underwear then you might be well advised to consider using synthetic labels. The appearance is distinctive and the diversity of potential materials which can be used and the various methods of production make these labels absolute all-rounders.

Synthetic labels can be found as key rings, in the merchandising sector, on bags and accessories or as decorative labels on ladies’ men’s or children’s wear. There are absolutely no restrictions where design is concerned. For example we can make your logo in two or even three dimensions and furthermore you do not have to choose from standard colours or shapes but can also decide whether we should supply you with sew-on or self-adhesive labels

Depending on the application they are intended for, the labels can be made of PVC, silicone, polyurethane, EVA or other synthetic materials and which we can combine by using HF-welding technology. In addition different levels of firmness are available depending on the application. Soft and skin-friendly synthetic labels are especially suitable for underwear, while lightfast, durable and resistant PVC articles are recommended for outdoor wear. We are able to produce silicon labels according to STANDARD 100, class 1 by OEKO-TEX®. Our basic materials are processed from granulate or paste or alternatively printed or pressed as film. With the aid of our special injection technique Bornemann is not only able to apply your motif to textiles but also to metal and other base materials.

We would very much like to draw your attention to micro-injection technology for the three-dimensional depiction of lettering and logos. Multi-coloured motifs, consisting of solid coloured basic material up to 30x30cm, are possible using these techniques. Micro-injection enables completely pigmented reliefs to appear very plastic and therefore the process is excellently suited for three-dimensional effects and filigree designs. Furthermore, you can combine micro-injection with traditional printing techniques.

We generally use PVC or silicone as the basic material for micro-injection synthetic labels. PVC labels and silicone labels are both easily washable and are resistant to light and chlorine. As a general rule 3-D labels are normally sewn on, but if required we can also supply punched, perforated or threaded hang tags. You have creative freedom in the design, colours, shape and size and our design department will be glad to help you. You will be able to benefit from our technical, creative and logistic knowhow to achieve the best possible result for your product.

The wonderful versatility of synthetic labels becomes apparent when using these techniques. Very impressive results can be achieved by means of printing, embossing or welding methods. For example filling material can be used in combination with printed synthetic foils to obtain a three-dimensional look. Even liquids, sand, feathers or gel come into consideration for the filling. Depending on the application intended, you can choose the basic material from a wide range of materials with differing properties. Reflecting labels made of 3M material are for example no problem at all. Our product managers will be glad to help you in your selection.

In the cases of high frequency welding or high frequency embossing we can bond several basic materials tightly together. A border of at least 2mm is required to ensure strong fusing. Even reliefs, embossed on one of the materials, are feasible when using these techniques. In addition your required motif can be printed (silk screen) on the base material prior to welding or embossing. You have probably already realized how versatile these printed labels can be. Our experts will be glad to, assist you when you order.

How can your logo get on the zipper? The answer is quite simple: Injection moulding. This is because this technique makes a firm and enduring connection between two materials feasible, whether it be plastic and metal or cord. It goes without saying that you can also have injection moulded labels printed with your own individual motifs or lettering. The great feature of injection moulding is that the label does not need to be flat which means you can consider having an emblem running round 360 degrees for optimal branding for your products.

Injection moulding has proved itself especially in the area of functional labels because we can process a wide range of basic materials depending on whether the label has to be hard, supple, soft or especially resistant to the effects of sunlight. We generally produce injection moulded synthetic labels in one colour and in the case of larger quantities this production process is particularly cost-effective.
