The QR code on all CERQL products are water and scratch proof. Printing directly onto wristbands is just not up to the job, the ink scratches and with the loss of some of the image, the code becomes illegible.
For wristbands and stickers CERQL print onto Polyolefin that is ideally suited to applications where label durability is required, surviving long term outdoor exposure and resisting water, various chemicals & most household detergents to ensure QR code identification is maintained. Polyolefin is a 175 micron matt white synthetic material, laminated to an 87 gram white glassine liner
For a permanent fixing we use a modified acrylic aqueous dispersion marine adhesive to BS 5609 . This adhesive exhibits good resistance to light, heat and ageing.

BS 5609 testing is a requirement for self adhesive drum labels needing International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) certification. Testing includes a 3 month exposure of labelled test plates in salt water at mid-tide. BS 5609 is an internationally recognised standard covering the suitability for the labelling of goods for marine shipment. However, in a more general way, it is widely referred to when specifying an extremely durable label.

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional barcode) first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A barcode is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached. A QR code uses four standardized encoding modes (numeric, alphanumeric, byte / binary, and kanji) to efficiently store data.
The codewords are 8 bits long and use the Reed–Solomon error correction algorithm, the image can therefore sustain some damage but still be decodable, making them robust enough and fit for purpose.
The image is 15 x 15mm but once scanned can show an A4 page of information with photographs making them the ideal design to carry information for first responders in a medical emergency or assisting in finding a lost child.
