Chemical & GHS Labels

Weber has the special adhesive-coated, high performance film labels to meet your chemical drum and pail labeling needs. Plus we have labels that meet GHS and BS-5609 compliance standards and drum reconditioning procedures. When you are printing label in-house, make sure you use the right chemical-resistant variable-imprint label materials that are compatible with direct-thermal, thermal-transfer and inkjet print technologies. We can help you make the right label choices as well as guide you in choosing the best printer for your application.

CPL Labelling

We can help you meet your chemical labelling requirements today.

The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is an internationally agreed-upon system, created by the United Nations. It is designed to replace the various classification and labeling standards used in different countries by using consistent criteria for classification and labeling on a global level.

Before placing chemicals on the market, the industry must establish the potential risks to human health and the environment of such substances and mixtures, classifying them in line with the identified hazards. The hazardous chemicals also have to be labelled according to a standardised system so that workers and consumers know about their effects before they handle them.

Chemical Label Tips

Materials:

  • Be sure your labels are UV and chemical resistant; the label inks and coatings should resist fading or blurring when exposed to direct sun or chemicals inside the container.
  • Special film labels resist chemical spills and last longer than standard film or paper labels.


Artwork:

  • GHS labels require special hazard symbols that have to be printed in red ink to comply with new GHS guidelines.
  • Contact Weber for more information and help meeting the requirements of the new GHS chemical label mandate.
