“Dangerous goods labels, placards and marks contain vital information for content identification, warning and instructional labeling, but often fail when exposed to extreme conditions,” says Alan Schoen, president, Labelmaster. “Labelmaster’s new labels, placards and marks are designed specifically to withstand the harsh supply chain conditions that dangerous goods face. Now companies can be confident that their dangerous goods will stay properly labeled and marked no matter what conditions they face.”
Made to suit specific customer needs, these labels feature excellent adhesion and resistance that can withstand exposure to a wide range of elements and substances, including:
- Cold environments: With material designed for cryogenic laboratories, these labels, placards and marks adhere in temperatures as low as -320°F without lifting – even with repeated changes in the surrounding temperature. They are ideal for cold chain operations, food and beverage, medical products, pharma, and logistics and warehousing in cold climates.
- Oily surfaces: Featuring adhesive backing that absorbs oil, these labels, placards and marks adhere directly to lubricated surfaces – textured or smooth – without having to be cleaned or degreased. They are perfect for automotive, oil and gas, waste/waste management, cosmetics, food and beverage, transport equipment, chemical manufacturing and paints and coatings.
- Wet surfaces: A high-tack, rubber-based adhesive keeps these labels adhered in wet, damp and cold conditions. They also stay stuck to low- and high-energy substrates and can be applied from 10°F to 150°F. They are suitable for food and beverage, health and beauty, household chemical labeling or any outdoor application.
- Solvent exposure: Designed to stand up to the harshest conditions for extended periods, these labels, placards and marks offer superior chemical and abrasion resistance, while also resisting acids, humidity, high temperatures and UV exposure. They are designed for automotive, oil and gas, chemical manufacturing and paints and coatings.
- Ultraviolet exposure: These labels' topcoats resist fading and deterioration for up to two years, and offers excellent resistance to acids, moisture and solvents from -40°F to 257°F. They are perfect for any environment where containers endure prolonged exposure to the elements.
