What do automotive parts, power tools, fire extinguishers, electronic components and chemical containers have in common?

Surprisingly, they all have one thing in common: they use durable labels somewhere on the product to share important information such as serial numbers, warnings, instructions and more.

durable label is synthetic carrier of important information/data with an adhesive layer, which is typically affixed to a product or component. Industrial durable labels are designed to resist harsh elements such as solvents, extreme temperatures, and moisture. 

A durable label is intended to remain with a durable good throughout the product’s life, which can be years, and must withstand possible hostile environments such as exposures to chemicals, extreme temperatures, or UV light. Labels need to last a long time so they keep providing end users with vital messaging through scorching sun, bitter cold, harsh chemical environments and more. Additionally, the label often must be recognized by UL as being a component itself of the durable good.

When it comes to durable goods, labels are for life. These labels can include words, pictures, or both, whatever is necessary to identify the contents and their importance. Labels help customers use and maintain their cars, power tools and appliances. And by delivering directions and critical warnings, labels keep people safe.

Durable products, such as tools, automotive parts, warning signs, consumer electronics, industrial machinery and more need labels that will withstand years of repeated use, abuse and harsh weather. 

By definition, a “durable” label is designed to withstand environmental conditions that would normally degrade the printed image and/or jeopardize the integrity of the label construction. In other words, durable labels are meant to be long-lasting and permanent.

  • Digiflex White BOPP, a UL-recognized economical polyproplyene material perfect for printing decorative graphics on sporting goods, warning labels, medical device labels, instruction labels and more..
  • Digiweb White Vinyl, a UL-recognized material with excellent conformability to curved surfaces. Works well for graphic display POP decals, warehouse shelf bin labels, and more.
  • Digiplate PET, a UL-recognized polyester film material (available in white, silver or chrome) that is suitable for flat industrial surfaces. Best suited for warning labels, instruction labels, medical device labels, sporting equipment labels and more. 
  • And all labels are given a clear laminate for additional protection.

Durable labels must endure heat, chemicals, solvents, water, mechanical strain and challenging outdoor conditions. Our solvent free label materials are resistant to many conditions, making them a more sustainable and dependable choice for all durable applications. Several of our durable labeling products have been tested and recognized by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. who are an independent product safety testing and certification organization.

Ultimately, a hardy product label is important because it will ensure you meet government regulations, enhance or improve your brand, and will clearly communicate important guidance to avoid misuse of your product.

What are some typical applications where I would need durable labels?

Some typical durable labeling applications include:

  • Asset management tags
  • Pharmaceutical applications
  • Electronic components
  • U/L and Military Standard conformance
  • Parts manufacturing involving high heat and/or solvents.
  • Power tools
  • Safety equipment like fire extinguishers
  • Automotive products and replacement parts
  • Aircraft products and parts
  • Medical devices and testing equipment

Using the Epson CW-C6000 Series Color Label Printers for Chemical Compliance Labeling

One of the best ways to bring GHS labeling in-house is to use one of the Epson CW-C6000 Series color inkjet label printers. These printers make creating and printing your GHS label easy and cost-effective.

Available in either 4" wide labels (C6000A or C6000P) or 8" wide labels (C6500A or C6500P).

The C6000A and C6500A have integrated automatic label cutters that cut the labels to the correct length after printing. The C6000P and C6500P have integrated peelers that present the label with the liner removed so the operator can instantly apply the label.

The printer, ink and label material are now available for purchase on

These label printers use pigmented inks for increased durability. They are chemical and water resistant and can stand up to the use and abuse that comes with chemical containers.

Engineered for mission-critical applications, the reliable printers speed through labels at up to 5-inches per second. The printers enable industrial and commercial organizations to produce high volume color labels for production use.

These printers are perfect for labeling small batches of chemical containers or when you need unique for every container. Just print your label one at a time. The text, graphics and images are clean and crisp. And they will stay that way.

Here is a closer look at a typical chemical label we use as an example. Printing this label requires multiple colors for the logo, pictograms and transportation pictograms.
