In the highly regulated automotive industry, labels are treated as parts and have specific requirements for size, material, numbering, and performance. Each label becomes an integral part of the final product and must meet the same IATF standards, regardless of who manufactures the product.
Automotive labels are used on engine components and throughout the interior and exterior of a vehicle to provide operating instructions and display safety information and hazard warnings. Typical areas of placement include windows, door jambs, battery casings, and engine components, tire rims, and the vehicle undercarriage. These labels must not only meet specific standards but be able to withstand long-term exposure to dirt, moisture, and corrosive substances.
