End-use applications for labels

Industrial and household chemicals

In some cases, labels have to provide clear, legible information, while holding aggressive or corrosive substances 

So to be thoroughly effective, they must be chemical resistant and, in some cases, capable of withstanding months in water.

Resistance against chemicals

To ensure the highest resistance to chemicals, labels should be printed with UV inks or protected (varnished) toners. Xeikon uv-inks avoid the need for further laminates. Sunlight protection (for applications exposed to sunlight) is an additional benefit.

Broad range of coated and synthetic substrates

Chemical labeling uses a broad range of substrates, from coated paper to synthetic substrates. Xeikon’s different print technologies perform well on all types of substrate or can be optimized with a standard corona treater.

Guaranteed longevity for traceability

Some 13,000 chemical drums are lost at sea per year. Xeikon printed labels (toner and UV ink) are compliant with BS5609 standards and can withstand 3 months in the sea or friction against sand. Once found, authorities know what is inside and who to contact.

Relevant applications

Chemical drum labels

Drum labels must conform to strict specifications laid down by the GHS. Xeikon meets these conditions while allowing for variable data such as barcodes, QR codes or serial numbers.

Pesticide labels 

For safety reasons, pesticide labels must comply to strict regulations and remain perfectly legible over time, even when stored in harsh conditions.

Oil labels

Light-fastness and chemical resistance are two of the criteria required for oil labels, which is guaranteed by the use of lightfast dry toner.
