For Shipments on International Waters: The IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) requires a BS 5609 certification. This certification will test the label to a 3 month exposure to saltwater, UV exposure, abrasion, and temperature cycling. In this way, this certification is similar to UL in that the ribbon and label must be approved as a construction. MR Label has many material and ribbon options to best suit your specific application. Just supply us with your label details: what is the label applied to and how will the on-demand printing be done and let us make a recommendation. We'd love to hear from you!
Are you curious about Section 2 & Section 3 details?
Section 2: Tests the base material and requires that labels withstand a three-month saltwater submersion test (carried out at a test site on the south coast of England). The test specifically looks for dimensional stability, peel adhesion and color fastness after long-term exposure to salt spray and sunlight.
Section 3: Tests the printed label for permanence, abrasion resistance (legibility and contrast after exposure to sand and artificial seawater) and color fastness. This includes the inks or ribbons and print methods or systems that were used to create the label.
