PCB labels, also known as printed circuit board labels or PCB markers, are specifically designed for track and trace identification and labeling of printed circuit boards (PCBs) used in electronic devices and equipment. These labels play a crucial role in PCB assembly, testing, and in the maintenance processes.
PCB manufacturers use multi-pass, high temperature reflow or wave soldering processes to join the myriad of electrical connections on their Printed Circuit Boards. The processes involve pre-heat and thermal soaks along with highly active (ORH1) fluxes and high pressure chemical washes. Polyonics' Printed Circuit Board labels are able to withstand the severity of these processes. When manufacturers demand the most rugged label materials available to accurately track their boards and components, our PCB labels deliver.
Printed Circuit Board labels are essential for accurate identification, traceability, and proper assembly of electronic components on PCBs. They aid in efficient manufacturing processes, inventory management, and quality control. The labels also play a role in equipment maintenance, repair, and troubleshooting by providing relevant information for technicians and engineers working with PCBs.
Polyonics® understands the intricacies of Printed Circuit Board manufacturing and designs and manufactures label materials specifically for these harsh environments. Our durable REACH & RoHS compliant tracking labels maintain the integrity of printed bar codes and images throughout the harshest, multi-cycle PCB manufacturing processes, helping manufacturers accurately control their PCB inventories from production through to customer deliveries.
Our materials have remained at the forefront of PCB label and track and trace technology for over 20 years. These PCB labels go through vigorous R&D programs, rigorous testing, and continuous evaluation and benchmarking by leading PCB and component designers and manufacturers worldwide.
Our dimensionally stable PCB labels and label materials are engineered to exceed the high temperature requirements of today’s most advanced reflow and wave solder processes.
Our next generation, non-yellowing, non-softening coatings are applied to our label materials to resist abrasion if contacted at elevated temperatures and withstand highly corrosive, highly active fluxes. The result is high contrast barcodes that remain readable post heat. Additional Resistance to Corrosive and Active Fluxes For High Contrast, Durable Barcodes.
The Printed Circuit Board label materials are engineered with aggressive pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs) that allow the label to remain firmly affixed through multiple passes in extreme temperatures and fully resistant to the most concentrated cleaning chemistries. Our PCB label materials are available in 1 and 2 mil thicknesses, in a variety of finishes and with a wide selection of aggressive PSAs to meet the unique specifications of various industry, military and ASTM standards.
