Understanding the Durability of Dissolvable and Removable Labels

When it comes to food labeling, removable labels or dissolvable labels can be a convenient solution for keeping track of your food containers and inventory. They dissolve in water easily and leave no residue, making them easy to remove and clean. But, one of the questions that comes to mind is how long do they last before they dissolve? In this post, we will discuss the durability of removable labels and how to make the most out of them.

The length of time that these labels last before dissolving depends on several factors, including the type of material used to make the label, the environment in which the label is stored, and the conditions under which the label is used.

Generally, removable labels are made from materials that are designed to dissolve quickly in water, often in a matter of minutes or hours. However, the specific time frame can vary depending on the brand and type of label. Some removable labels that haven’t come into contact with water can last up to 8 months. MESS Labels will last for a year before beginning to lose some adhesion.

It’s important to note that removable labels can be affected by the environment in which they are stored. If they are stored in a dry or hot area, they will take longer to dissolve. It’s not recommended to store them in moist places. Additionally, the way they are used can also affect how long they last, for example, if they are exposed to high heat they may dissolve faster.

It’s essential to check the manufacturer’s guidelines for dissolving time and storage recommendations before buying and using these dissolving and removable labels. These guidelines will provide information on how long the labels will last and how to maximize their lifespan.

In conclusion, removable labels can be an excellent solution for keeping track of food containers, but it’s important to understand their durability and how to make the most out of them. Under water, MESS labels last 30 seconds before they are completely gone. Again – if you don’t get them wet, they will last up to a year.
