SANFORD, FL, April 24, 2017
OnlineLabels.com, a leading online retailer in blank and custom printed labels, now offers chemical-resistant vinyl labels. These labels are compliant with freight shipping standards outlined in The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
All of the chemical-resistant labels in the new product line are British Standard BS5609 Section 2-compliant, meaning the blank stock has been tested and approved to perform under certain maritime conditions. The sheeted labels are compatible with standard desktop laser printers. To comply with Section 3 of BS5609, these labels will also need to be paired with a compatible printer. The GHS label sheets offered by OnlineLabels.com are tested to be Section 3-compliant with the following printers:
- Lexmark C792E
- NeuraLabel 500e (Sheet)
"Maintaining compliance with an ever-changing set of rules can be difficult. We want to make it as easy as possible for companies in this market to get what they need and keep business moving," explains OnlineLabels.com President Dave Carmany. "Introducing a chemical-resistant offering gives customers with these specific requirements a one-stop label supplier for all of their business’ needs."
The new chemical-resistant vinyl material is designed to be versatile enough to meet a broad array of uses. Due to their durability, vinyl labels are commonly used for labeling products that come in contact with moisture, oils, and chemicals. The material has grown in popularity in recent years with cosmetic companies, craft consumers, and warehouse managers. "When customers start using the products in their businesses, that's when we really get to see their full potential," says OnlineLabels.com Marketing Director Steve Leung. "We've already seen a number of creative customers repurposing these labels in ways we didn't expect."
"Like with any new product, we spent a great deal of time researching and learning about this market," continues Carmany. "We’re confident that what we bring to the table will meet and exceed the needs of our customers. We look forward to seeing where this new product line goes."
