Self-Laminating vinyl labels (B-427)

Self-laminating vinyl labels are ideal for labeling data cables and wires that are frequently handled and moved. They can be applied pre-termination or post-termination and have a clear wrap-around tail designed to laminate the printed portion of the label, providing extra protection for the label text.
