EXPEDITER™ Polyester UID labels are high quality, cost effective, and offer ‘peel-and-stick’ convenience for light duty indoor and 2-year exterior applications. Both Brady B-483 2-mil white polyester and Brady B-486 silver metalized polyester are designed for high adhesion to textured metals, powder coated surfaces and low surface energy plastics. The metalized feature of B-486 adds tensile strength, but is conductive so may not be suitable for electronics.

Printed with Pride

EXPEDITER™ Polyester UID labels are thermal transfer printed with premium black resin ribbons for maximum durability and contrast. Technical Data sheets for both B-483 and B-486 are located below.
