Chemical label legalities
As you probably know, chemical labels need to meet various legal standards to do with:
- the materials they’re printed on
- how they’re printed
- their adhesive properties (for self-adhesive labels).
How did these standards originate?
These standards are part of the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)—a programme initiated by the United Nations on June 1, 2015 and agreed to internationally. The GHS standards ensure all hazardous goods are identified the same way, and anyone who manufacturers, imports or supplies chemical compounds and substances must follow them.
As a specialist label manufacturer, you can rest assured we not only know these standards, but follow them closely.
For example, we know the self-adhesive and film labels we print for polypropylene and polyethylene products must include the correct identifications, hazard and safety warnings. And we’ll print the GHS pictograms necessary for the container capacities you determine in the correct minimum sizes.
So whether your chemical manufacturing company is large or small, you can be confident your labels will comply with the GHS standards. And like all our labels, we’ll print them at the highest quality and at a reasonable price. And they’ll be delivered on time, every time. We can even send the label rolls directly to your bottler.
Labels for Chemicals; Roll Labels
Polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) labels
Chemical labels need to stay adhesive and legible for the life of the container. They need to be resistant to chemical substances so you can always find out what’s inside.
So our roll, self-adhesive and film labels are all made from polypropylene and polyethylene, which fulfil all the hazardous substance labeling requirements.

Whether you manufacture or bottle chemicals, you’ll know the packaging is subject to pretty stringent regulations. Not only does the container need to be resistant to exposure from its contents (which are often hazardous substances), the label must also comply with legislative requirements.

Chemical Labels FAQs
Generally speaking, either Polyethylene (PE) or Polypropylene (PP) materials are best suited to household and chemical product labels. Both materials are polymeric and do not absorb water or oil; they are also resistant to most household chemical products.
We produce labels of every shape and size to fit any pack-format. Label artwork should be print-ready and show the custom-shaped cutting tool. We extract the cutting tool data and send to our custom cutting tool manufacturer.
