BS 5609 indicates that the substrate is certified for Section 2 and Section 3 Marine Immersion label testing. The BS 5609 is often used on painted steel and polyethylene drums, our face-stocks have been chosen for their ability to withstand harsh settings and outdoor contact. Our BS 5609 face-stocks are combined with strong adhesives to offer flexibility.

Chemical manufacturers need to ensure that they select the right label material to use on their BS5609 labels. The label material should be durable and should last the entire lifetime of the label. The ink used on the label should be able to withstand harsh weather elements and should be legible. If you export your chemicals, these labels need to be waterproof and you need to use water proof adhesives that will ensure the labels do not come off in case the chemicals get in contact with water.
