3M division obtains UL recognition

September 28, 2011

The announcement that 3M’s Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division received UL recognition for product security was made at Labelexpo Europe.

The 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division has obtained UL recognition for product security and identification solutions that combine the core range of UL recognized 3M label stock materials with five of the leading digital UV ink jet label printers and ink systems. The announcement was made at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels on Wednesday.

High durability of UV inks and high quality print capability is important for label converters who often need to supply product identification labels as UL/cUL recognized components for labeling of consumer electronic equipment, cellular communication equipment, garden equipment, and power tools, where in all cases the label identification system must be durable for the lifetime of the product.

Full details of the label products and ink listings, along with UV ink jet printed samples, are available at 3M’s booth: 11Q110.
