Chemical Label Printing
Clear & Concise Chemical Labels
Any hazardous material, chemical or substance must through hazcom (hazard communication) be very clearly identified through labelling. Using a chemical as an example the label must detail the following: a signal word, a hazard statement, a precautionary statement, supplier identification, and a pictogram.
Gilly Print will work with you to create the best chemical labelling solution possible.
Examples of CLP Hazard Pictograms
You can buy your chemical hazard labels pre printed or if you are printing them yourself we can supply you with the best approved quality of labels. All our safety labels comply with the British standard of adhesive BS5609.
If you would like to print your own bespoke CLP, ADR, etc. labels, Gilly Print can supply you with a printer suitable for the job. We can supply Zebra, Citizen, Godex and Datamax Thermal Transfer Printers.
Created by the United Nations GHS is the Globally Harmonized system of Classification and labelling of Chemicals and is internationally recognised. To replace the various classification and labelling standards that currently exist in various countries GHS labels have been created. The European Commission has, therefore, created the CLP regulation (European Regulation on Classification, Labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures) which has adopted this new GHS system. The regulation came into force on 20th January 2009 and was enforced by law in all EU member states in 2015.
In accordance with current transport regulations all chemical and hazardous products must be clearly and correctly labelled. Label material must adhere to legal guidelines such as BS5609. Your hazard labels can be custom printed or blank. Chemical labels vary in shape and size from small bottle labels to chemical drum labels. Perfect for all road, rail, air and sea transport. Fully compliant with ADR, RID, IMDG and IATA regulations.
