What are other names for Duro-Lenz badges?

What is the Duro-Lenz label coating?
It is a two component polyurethane comprising modified polyols and isocyanates. Once cured, it is extremely tough and will withstand scratching, abrasion, UV light, adverse environmental conditions such as salt spray, common solvents and household cleaners. The Duro-Lenz surface coating is self repairing – stick your fingernail into a Duro-Lenz label and watch the indentation disappear within a few minutes. Domed (Duro-Lenz) labels are virtually indestructible.
Are UV and epoxy type doming resins equivalent to the Duro-Lenz resin system?
In a word…NO! Most of these types of materials will yellow, crack and craze after a short time, when exposed to UV sunlight. This result means your corporate image has been compromised by cheap labelling. Conversely, we often say “our products will outlast the products they are being stuck onto”.
Therefore, be careful with imported domed labels. Generally, they will not last. You may get a cheap price, but, as the saying goes….”you get what you pay for”.
Generally, Duro-Lenz labels are “over-engineered” for their myriad of applications. This gives you peace-of-mind to know that our products are manufactured to world class standards.
Do you print small quantities?
Duro-Lenz is the short run specialists. We can produce 1 off prototypes through to large production runs if required. However, our average daily run quantities vary from as low as 100 pieces and can go up to 5000 units. Yes…we love to produce small quantities and will do so at the best possible prices.
Why should I buy domed labels in comparison to stickers?
The Duro-Lenz surface coating enhances, magnifies and gives depth of colour to the printed image and protects the print from scratching and abrasion. The domed surface coating will not crack, craze or discolour when exposed to long term, outdoor, environmental conditions. This means that, when compared to a standard sticker or other methods of branding products, your graphics will look better, stand out more and last longer. This means… more sales for you!
