When it comes to the safe transit, storage and use of hazardous products, chemical label solutions take on added importance
Our range of chemical label products are suitable for a variety of packaging sizes, ranging from a 1000 litre IBC to a 25ml sample vial.
Labels are used for a multitude of different reasons – from advising instructions on chemical bottle labels to helping with advertising efforts. They can also be used to help identify hazardous chemicals, detailing what the hazards are and how best to avoid them.
All over the world there are different and unique laws that dictate how to best identify the hazardous properties of chemicals and how this information should be relayed to users. With various international justifications to contend with, this can cause a lot of confusion for international businesses supplying and procuring these substances.
That’s why the United Nations (UN) developed the GHS of classification and labelling chemicals, standardised global guidelines for hazardous chemicals. Its aim was to establish:
- A criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health, environmental and physical hazards.
- Clearly communicate hazard requirements for labelling and safety data sheets.
We can offer you the tools you’ll need to create durable GHS labels in-house or we can manufacture fully pre-printed labels to suit all volumes and budgets.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is an international mandatory guideline for the safe transportation of potentially dangerous materials or hazardous goods across water. Its aim is to protect both crew and public and to reduce the risk of marine pollution.
To comply with the IMDG Code, also known as the ‘Marine Immersion Labels Testing Standard’, your labels need to be produced using BS5609 approved, waterproof label media.
We can help you achieve full 3-part BS5609 compliance, involving the adhesive, face material and overprinting, by combining our BS5609 labels with a tested and approved print solution.
Working alongside partners in the chemical sector has allowed us to create bespoke solutions to ensure our customers get the best from their chemical labelling software. We recommend BarTender software for designing attractive, uniform label templates with the facility to import data via complex links to external databases. BarTender dovetails into Lisam’s ExESS software streamling your EHS and SDS authoring, distribution and labelling operations. Your branding, product info, GHS and transport information can be displayed on your label, in multiple languages, with ease.
