Materials and Their Properties
All information on the label must be clearly legible and indelible according to the EU Biocide Regulation. To ensure this, we recommend permanent labels made of PP and PE film in matt or glossy. With the help of a thermal transfer printer (not to be confused with direct thermal printers) you can print batch number, production date and expiration date subsequently. If you have a direct thermal printer, we recommend our direct thermal paper. If you have problems creating the graphics file, we will be happy to create your labels for you. Simply book our design service. We design your labels according to your specifications and you only have to approve them before production starts.
You are welcome to order your individual labels via our online calculator. If you are unsure or have any questions in this regard, please feel free to contact us by email at email@example.com or by phone at 0203 588 1080. We will be happy to advise you on our labels and options. You can hardly keep up with the production of disinfectants and need your new labels as soon as possible? No problem – choose our express production and we will deliver your labels within a few days, depending on production volume.
What Goes on the Bottle?
For many years, we have been working in the field of labels for chemicals with numerous large and small manufacturers. It doesn’t matter if the batch is large or small, we will process your label printing for bottles with care, at a reasonable price and on schedule for the agreed delivery date. If you wish, we can send your roll labels for chemicals to your bottler.
Since June 1 2015, the ‘Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals’, GHS for short, has been in force. The GHS is an internationally agreed programme which was initiated by the United Nations. The GHS standards were created to replace the legislation in place in individual countries and to guarantee standardised identification of hazardous goods. All manufacturers, importers and suppliers of chemical compounds and substances must adhere to these standards.
For us, as a manufacturer of labels, this means that we must supply self-adhesive labels and polypropylene and polyethylene film labels printed with the correct identifications, hazard and safety warnings. We will also print the prescribed GHS pictograms according to the container capacities you determine in the correct minimum sizes. You can find a comprehensive guide to the pictograms for hazardous products on the governments website.

Temporary Changes to the Use and Supply of Denatured Alcohol and Duty-Free Spirits
To help businesses who produce or want to produce hand sanitiser and gel, the UK Government have relaxed a few rules relating to the use and supply of denatured alcohol and duty free spirits.
Currently there is no end date to these new rules and the UK Government have stated they will provide a 30 day notice period as to when these will be lifted.
