What is a Pressure-Sensitive Label?

A pressure sensitive label is a term used to designate a distinct category of the adhesive label which, in dry (solvent free) form, is aggressive and permanent or removable at room temperature and adheres to a variety of surfaces without the need of more than finger or hand pressure. A pressure sensitive label requires no activation by water, solvent or heat and has sufficient cohesive strength so it can be handled with the fingers.
