Datamax ChemShield Labels Testing for BS5609

Testing the Labels BS5609

By the way, the BS5609 Standard asks that the labels are able to survive a 3 month dip in the English Channel and as part of the testing processes, that is what the sample labels were subjected to.

The photo here shows blank labels being tested for adhesive properties, but the color printed ones (available with black, red, blue yellow and orange print) go through the same certification process. The thermal printable coating on the label is also certified to BS5609 as long as you use one of our approved resin ribbons.
