WEBER Marking Systems, distributed in Australia by Peacock Brothers , has introduced its Flex-Pack 475 drum label.
This is a pressure-sensitive material that was engineered for petrochemical labeling and even more specifically formulated for labeling products that are transported in demanding environments.
"Flex-Pack 475 is a unique material that has been tested and accepted for international maritime dangerous goods (IMDG) certification," says Tom Michalsen, Weber's media products manager.
"This label material will withstand just about anything, including seawater immersion and sand abrasion."
Flex-Pack 475 is a thermal-transfer-imprintable, polypropylene film with a permanent adhesive ideal for steel, plastic and fibre drums. Its service temperature is -40°F to 300°F, and it is resistant to water, mild acids, bases, salts and most petrochemicals.
