Product warning and industrial safety labels contain critical information about how to properly operate industrial equipment as well as the hazards associated with improperly operating the equipment.
It is crucial that the information conveyed on these fundamental labels remain legible for the life of the product.
Pressure-sensitive films are ideal because they are rigid and provide excellent printability, keeping the label intact and legible. Film also provides good resistance to the abrasion that occurs during product assembly, shipment, and use. Pressure-sensitive adhesives are specially formulated to securely bond to a large variety of challenging surfaces.
Communication is key when safety is involved.
Tailored Label Products can help ensure that your products are clearly marked with:
- Product Caution Labels
- Danger Labels & Tags
- Product Warning Tags
- Multi-Lingual Warning & Instruction Labels
- GHS Labels / Drum / Chemical Labeling
- California Prop 65 Warning Labels
- UDI / MDR Labels for Medical Device
- OSHA Labels
- ANSI Labels
- …and more
Depending on the application, both vinyl and polyester are widely used for durable industrial labels. Vinyl is a great choice for outdoor applications with curved surfaces, while polyester excels in high temperature abrasive environments.
Adhesion, abrasion, and outdoor weatherability are among the most common tests performed on durable labels. TLP has a team of engineers and a special testing lab to ensure each label meets customer requirements.
The most important factor to determine an adhesive for industrial labels is understanding what surface it will be applied to. Surfaces are categorized by their surface energy; high, medium, and low. High surface energy applications are easier to bond to (ie: raw metal, glass, etc.), while low surface energy applications tend to be a bit harder (ie: powder coat paints, polypropylene, etc.). There are specific adhesives for each category and identifying the correct one will lead to long term success.
We like to say we’re 100% Custom and 100% Engineered. Every label Tailored Label Products produces is built around the specifications and needs of the customer application.
