Chemical Labels

Unlike common perceptions, chemical labels aren’t just required on highly toxic chemicals in science labs! Many of the everyday products we all use on a daily basis require chemical hazard labelling to ensure the safe use and storage.

Cleaning products, weed killer, fertiliser and glues are all considered chemical products and we are on hand to inform you of the regulations surrounding your product type to help you avoid any issues down the line.

Although you may think your product range is not dangerous and the safety information is self-explanatory, you can find yourself with serious legal issues if you fail to disclose clear instructions detailing what to do in the case of incidents such as ingestion or spillages. Environmental instructions need to be clear as well, guiding on how to dispose of the product or packaging and keeping people safe. Always check the latest rules and regulations for your chemical products.

Designing Chemical Labels

The design of your custom chemical labels is paramount to help you stand out amongst competitors both on the shelf and online. With such a competitive marketplace nowadays, designing chemical hazard labels that appeal to consumers is a great step in the right direction to grow your business.

Our combination of recommended graphic designers and top of the range technology is an unbeatable combination, allowing us to manufacture advanced chemical labels that take you one step above the rest. When it comes to creating chemical hazard labels, there are extra considerations that need to be made in comparison to other kinds of labels;

  • With such a large amount of information being required, multi-layer labels are sometimes crucial to fit as much detail as possible without having a large impact on the look and feel of the label itself.
  • The right type of material needs to be established dependent on the nature of your product. For example, bleach labels are liable to become damaged over time as the chemicals can react with the material.
  • A different type of adhesive may need to be used if your product can interfere with its properties. The adhesive on your chemical labels must be able to withstand any leakages which may deteriorate its quality.

FAQs – Chemical Labels

A chemical label should not include any terms, phrases or words that may mislead the user about the hazards present or underestimate them. For example, you should avoid using statements such as ‘safe’, ‘non-harmful’, ‘non-toxic’, ‘non-polluting’, ‘ecological’ or ‘eco’ on the chemicals if this isn’t relevant. Any other statements that contradict the classification of the substance or mixture being placed on the market should not appear on the label either.

The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) states that chemical manufacturers, importers or distributers must ensure each container that contains hazardous chemicals is labelled, tagged or marked with:

  • Product identifier
  • Signal word
  • Hazard statements
  • Precautionary statements
  • Precautionary pictograms
  • Name, address and telephone number of the chemical manufacturer, importer or other responsible parties

It’s also a good idea to add directions/uses/instructions for your product to avoid misuse along with storage requirements, ingredients. This will help your customers to get the most out of your product as well as avoiding any harmful incidents.

You can usually find out the list of ingredients and care information from your manufacturer either on their website or by phoning the manufacturer directly for the list.

Important! Always check the latest chemical labelling laws. We are not liable for checking label information and laws.

Mixing certain chemicals together can be dangerous, so when you’re creating your chemical labels for your products, it’s important to list the types of chemicals, dyes, fragrances included. You may also find that many people have allergies or intolerances to certain chemicals, so these need to be clearly labelled on the back of your product.

Including directions on your product is important to give your customers hints on how to make the product most effective. Include information like how long to leave it on the surface, what to mix it with or whether it needs rinsing off.
