BS5609 Certified - Assuring GHS Compliance

The BS5609 standard was established by the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), and sets forth internationally recognized standards for durability and environmental resistance. GHS labels used on chemical drum and other types of chemical containers must be able to endure the extreme environments that they are routinely exposed to including withstanding chemicals, solvents, abrasion, salt water, UV exposure, and other tough elements. ITW Security and Brand Identity Group’s resin ribbons are BS5609 certified assuring that the information printed on the label (product identifier/ingredient disclosure, supplier identification, signal words, pictograms, hazard, and precautionary statements) remain readable throughout the life of the label. These ribbons produce long lasting, high resolution images and can be used on a wide variety of label stocks including:

  • MACtac® - FCD6914 (2 mil White PET)
  • 3M - 7871 (2 mil White PET)
  • FLEXcon - DRUMcal 51932 (Polypropylene)
