Durable label materials designed for marine environments


A range of BS5609 certified, high quality label materials are offered from Brady to identify chemicals and other goods in marine environments. The new marine label materials offer high salt water durability, great UV-resistance and an excellent adhesive and are a great addition to Brady's wide range of durable label materials for harsh environments.

Durable marine identification
BS5609 certified label materials are rigorously tested, including a three month exposure to salt water at mid-tide, to ensure performance in marine environments. The standard also offers criteria for adhesive performance, print permanence and abrasion resistance. Where many labels fade, become unreadable or even fall off because of salt water and sunlight, Brady's marine labels remain legible and stay attached.                                                        

Marine applications
Brady's label materials B-595, B-7569 and B-7541P have all received the BS5609 certificate. They are suited to identify IMDG goods and dangerous chemicals with the required CLP-labels, and can also be used to create durable safety and evacuation signs and pipe markers.

Brady's BS5609 certified label materials can be a great identification tool for any company operating in marine environments, including companies in oil and gas, off-shore power, shipping, logistics and dredging.

On-site printable
The BS5609 certified label materials B-595 and B-7569 can be printed on-site using a quality thermal transfer printer from Brady, such as the BBP35 or BBP37 Label Printer. Labels with black and red print on white backgrounds, like CLP-labels, can easily be created with these printers and Brady's CLP-app in port, at sea or off-shore to address ad hoc identification needs.

Other applications, such as full colour safety signs and pipe markers, can be fully or partially pre-printed at the Brady factory in line with customer specifications.
