As the environmental demands on industrial packaging increase, so does the need for the reliability of its marking. 3M has developed an identification system that guarantees long-term legibility even when subjected to aggressive chemicals or cleaning processes. The system has already proven itself many times over, for example, in the labeling of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) for the transport of hazardous goods.
A UN guideline lays down clear rules for the transport of hazardous goods in IBCs: The metallic cage has to carry two detailed identification labels. These must be resistant to ageing and their imprint still legible after five years – even when subjected to repeated stacking and transport processes, extreme weathering and chemicals such as acetone or super fuel. The solution is an acetone-resistant 3M polyester film tape with high adhesive strength, printed using 3M Durable Resin Ribbon 92904, which offers reliable, durable marking, even in demanding environments.
