When safety is a must – chemical labels from HERMA
Labelling of products in the chemical industry is regulated by strict laws. The GHS classification and the CLP Regulation set forth uniform international rules for labelling chemicals, including information on components, potential hazards and classification.
Versatile labels with special characteristics
Chemical labels must stick firmly to containers of all kinds: barrels, drums, canisters, shipping containers, IBCs, FIBCs, bottles and pallets. The surfaces, which can be metal, plastic, glass or wood, have many different requirements. Depending on the application, they can include resistance to chemicals (acids, alkalis, solvents), saltwater, dirt, grease and oil. Environmental factors such as heat, moisture, cold and UV radiation must also be taken into account. HERMA labels easily comply with additional requirements like resistance to filling with hot liquids.
We will work with you to develop the labels you need for identification of your chemical products – from the selection of materials all the way to printing: rugged, but flexible films of various types; adhesives suitable for a wide range of temperatures, applications and surfaces; lightfast inks (6-7 on the blue wool scale); cutting and printing as needed.
