Labels for Energy Device Manufacturing

The need for adequate labeling exists across all industries as labeling is the key to communicating the proper usages of equipment. However, some industries require that labeling meet certain standards for safety reasons. Labeling in the energy device manufacturing industry require special UL 969 certified labels according to the UL Standards requirements in the U.S.

Scope of Requirements for Marking and Labeling Systems under UL 969

Adhesive identification labels used as nameplates, markers, or with graphic overlays displaying information or instructions should comply to UL 969 standards. Under these requirements, adhesives must be pressure-sensitive. The UL 969 standards for adhesive labels cover the raw materials, the adhesive and the ink and printing processes used for the creation of polyester labels and graphic overlays. They should also be heat or solvent resistant and adhere to a variety of different surfaces.
