FLEXcon Eliminates Drum Label Certification Process for Convertors and Manufacturers Servicing the Petroleum and Chemical Industries

By Business Wire News   


FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive coating and laminating, today announced that to support converters and manufacturers servicing the petroleum and chemical industries, the company has certified DRUMcal™ 51932 2.3 mil white polypropylene for BS 5609 Section 2 for salt water immersion and BS 5609 Section 3 for print durability with multiple thermal transfer ribbons.

Given the need for the industry to comply with Globally Harmonized Standard (GHS) requirements, FLEXcon has qualified DRUMcal 51932 with both black and red thermal transfer ribbons to create an offering that will enable customers to print BS 5609 Section 2 and Section 3 compliant labels without incurring the cost of testing or taking the time required to obtain certification.

“At FLEXcon, we are always looking for solutions to help improve the customer experience,” said Brian Ayers, product manager, Product Identification, FLEXcon. “By taking on this testing, we have eliminated the need for customers who are looking to print BS 5609 Section 2 and Section 3 compliant labels to go through testing, saving them the time and expense required to obtain certification per GHS standards.”

Thus far, FLEXcon has worked with co-suppliers such as Dynic, DNP, Armor, ITW Thermal Films and ITW Security & Brand Identity Group to certify their ribbons on FLEXcon’s material.
