Clear and unambiguous labelling

Labelling of products in the chemicals industry is governed by a whole series of legal provisions and ordinances. Chemical products are clearly and unambiguously labelled in line with standardised global directives before shipping. Added to these are the requirements for saltwater resistance as per British Standard 5609, Section 2 or 3.

We will work with you to develop the labels you need for identifying your chemical products – from the selection of materials all the way to printing. Supplied on rolls, sheets or fanfolded, in the label format of your choice.

Difficult conditions? We have the solution

Chemical labels must stick firmly to containers of all kinds: barrels, drums, canisters, shipping containers, IBCs, FIBCs, bottles and pallets.

  • They have to be able to meet the many challenges posed by different surfaces, such as metal, plastic, glass and wood
  • They need high adhesive strength even on highly curved, rough, dusty or oily surfaces
  • Depending on their purpose, they have to be resistant to chemicals (acids, alkalis, solvents)
  • We custom-produce labels with a wide range of saltwater-resistant adhesives, including adhesives compliant with BS 5609 Section 3
  • Rugged HERMA film labels are resistant to environmental conditions like moisture, low temperatures and UV radiation
  • HERMA labels easily comply with additional requirements like resistance to filling with hot liquids.
  • We supply overprintable labels with GHS diamond frames for custom-printing on your thermal transfer printers, laser printers or inkjet printers with pigmented inks
  • We also supply ready-printed hazardous goods labels with the prescribed diamond shape and in highly visible colours
  • Colour pre-printed, self-adhesive warning signs offer a cost-effective solution for small print runs on your own b/w or colour laser printer
  • Supplied on rolls, sheets or fanfolded, in your label format

We are here to support all your labelling requirements.
