On a regulatory level, the GHS classification and CLP regulation set out international rules for the labeling of chemicals, with regard to information about components, potential hazards and classifications.
Transparency and traceability for the consumer
Labels also provide the customer with the right information about how to use the product and guarantee the quality of the product, its origin marking, and its manufacturing locations or dates.
Labeling with excellent resistance to different types of attacks
In addition, chemical labels must be held firmly in place on containers of all kinds: drums, cans, shipping containers, IBC, FIBC, bottles and pallets. They must be able to meet the many challenges posed by different surfaces, such as metal, plastic, glass and wood. Depending on their use, they must be resistant to chemicals (acids, alkalis, solvents), salt water, dirt, grease and oil. Their resistance is also severely tested by external elements such as heat, humidity, cold and UV light.
We offer different types of labels and stretch sleeve, UV resistant inks (6-7 on the blue wool scale) for high-definition printing, and materials and configurations suitable for all production, logistics and usage requirements. They can comply with the most rigorous conditions, including BS 5609, for marine transport.
