PPG Industries’ will conduct in-booth testing to demonstrate the durability of TESLIN(R) labels for chemical drum shipping and other demanding applications in booth 8A37 at Labelexpo Europe 2015 in Brussels, Belgium, between 29 September and 2 October.
PPG will showcase Teslin label stock, which recently achieved British Standard (BS) 5609 Section II certification, and now enables businesses to comply with mandates for Global Harmonization Standard (GHS) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.
Due to their unique microporous structure, Teslin labels offer chemical drum label converters and shippers an exclusive array of performance characteristics. Unlike other non-porous synthetic label stocks such as vinyl and polypropylene, Teslin labels lock inks and toners into their surfaces, protecting printed GHS label data from being altered or removed, even after exposure to chemicals, extended immersion in seawater and excessive scuffing during shipping and handling.
In addition to being chemical, abrasion and moisture-resistant, Teslin labels are compatible with a broad range printing technologies, including digital inkjet, laser and thermal transfer. This can help chemical companies transition economically from thermal transfer printing of black-and-white chemical drum labels to digital printing of Global Harmonization System (GHS) compliant labels using a single label paper and label stock.
Teslin labels are static-resistant for increased safety in industrial and chemical environments and withstand extreme hot-to-cold temperature cycling.
