Harsh Environment Durable Labeling Advantages

Custom labels manufactured specifically for harsh environments are better suited to handle extreme climates and challenging scenarios. Whether it’s extreme heat or cold, or exposure to chemicals and natural irritants, having a label that provides prolonged adhesion is exceedingly important for sustained product identification. Some of the benefits that a harsh label can provide include:

  • Extreme temperatures
  • Oil, gas, and chemical exposure
  • Constant sunlight and UV exposure
  • Extended submersion in liquids
  • Severe abrasion
  • Dirt, grease, and grime
  • High speed operation of moving parts

From aerospace to mining, there are any number of challenging environments your products—and their labels—may encounter. If your labels are to remain readable and usable, they must be tough enough to stand up to extreme wear and tear. Our custom adhesive labeling solutions can provide prolonged label adhesion for the following applications:

Harsh Environment Labels for the Automotive Industry

Creating labels that can survive the punishing conditions of the automotive environment is a Grand Rapids Label specialty. We develop adhesives that are custom-engineered to hold, even when applied to rough metal castings or oily surfaces. Our proprietary, industry-leading resin-based topcoat increase print performance and offers 30% better abrasion and chemical resistance than other commercially-available topcoats.

Robust and durable, our labels can withstand severe temperatures and plant operations like machining and washing and remain legible and scannable after exposure to brake fluid and other harsh liquids. On-demand printing enables easy changes with the performance of a preprinted label, for a high quality, cost-effective identification solution.

From Drive Shafts to Frozen Foods

Grand Rapids Label has delivered harsh environment labels for countless applications. We have provided part identification labels for drive shafts on pickup trucks. These trucks are used on Alaskan pipeline sites, to haul excavation equipment through the Mexican desert, and everywhere in between. The drive shaft labels have to be durable enough to withstand heavy duty use and exposure to hazardous chemicals in extreme high and low temperatures.

From trucks to summertime snacks, another prime example of our harsh environment labels is ice cream cone wrappers. Labels like these present a number of unique challenges—they must meet critical cleanliness, ink, and adhesive standards, as well as customer design specifications. These labels are produced in a controlled environment and created to withstand harsh freezer conditions.
