Datamax-O’Neil Introduces ChemShield, a Chemical Drum Labeling Solution
The company’s extensive line of drum labels address the compliant-driven requirements of hazardous material labeling applications
Orlando, FL – February 28, 2013 – Datamax-O’Neil, a global provider of industrial grade label and receipt printing solutions, announces the availability of ChemShield, an extensive portfolio of chemical drum labels that meet internationally recognized standards for durability and environmental resistance. Drums and containers used to transport petroleum, paint, liquid and power chemicals must be designed to meet extreme conditions, and the labels which identify content, warnings and safety instructions must meet similar requirements.
Datamax-O’Neil’s line of chemical drum labels are available for both thermal transfer and laser printed applications. All labels are BS5609 Section 2 and Section 3 certified, meeting the internationally recognized British Maritime standard for abrasion resistance, permanence of printer and overall image durability.
“Datamax-O’Neil’s drum label materials have been extensively tested for print image acceptance, durability and retention so that customers can be assured they will meet the rigorous compliance standards that are required of labels used to transport chemical drums and containers,” said Ann Iten, senior product manager for Datamax-O’Neil. “Non-compliance can result in hefty fines and more importantly, can be extremely dangerous due to toxicity factors. Labels for these drums and containers must be resilient to extreme environmental conditions and be readable for many years.”
In addition to the ChemShield label solution, Datamax-O’Neil offers a variety of compatible printers, both stationary and portable, that meet the various chemical drum labeling requirements.
