Understanding temperature indicating labels

Temperature stickers are smart, visual indicators that change color or display in response to temperature fluctuations. They are engineered with specialized materials that react predictably to temperature changes within predefined ranges. These labels are typically stuck onto product packaging or directly on the products themselves. They provide real-time, at-a-glance information about whether a product has been exposed to temperature conditions outside the recommended range.

When are temperature indicating stickers necessary?

Essentially, any product that can be damaged or altered due to fluctuating temperatures needs to be tracked with Smart Tag temperature indicating stickers. These are the three biggest industries that benefit from this technology:

  • Pharmaceutical Industry: Many pharmaceutical products, such as vaccines, biologics, and sensitive medications, are highly temperature-sensitive. For example, some vaccines and blood samples need to be kept between 2-8 °C, while other vaccines and medications must be kept frozen between between -15°C and -25°C. Deviations from the recommended storage conditions, even for short periods, can compromise the potency and effectiveness of pharmaceuticals.
  • Refrigerated consumables: Refrigerated consumables, including fresh foods, dairy products, and certain chemicals, require precise temperature control to maintain their freshness and quality. Smart Tag temperature indicator labels help to ensure that these products remain within the recommended temperature range of between 0°C and 4.5°C. If temperature deviations occur, these stickers provide a visual cue to suppliers, distributors, and retailers, allowing them to assess the condition of the goods.
  • Frozen goods: Frozen goods, such as ice cream, frozen meats, and seafood, must be kept at consistently low temperatures of between 0°C and -18°C to prevent thawing and to maintain their quality. Smart Tag Temperature indicating stickers are essential for monitoring these products during transportation, especially in long-distance or cross-border shipments. If the temperature rises above the freezing point, the stickers provide a visible alert, enabling immediate action to prevent thawing and quality deterioration.
