Avery Dennison recently announced it has created a Global Client Service Laboratory at its Innovation Center in Mentor, Ohio, intended to help customers reduce the time to market for new durable label products by accelerating the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certification process. The certification scope includes UL standard 969 and CSA standard C22.2 No. 0.15 for nameplates and safety labels.

“With this UL-certified lab, we have everything needed to conduct testing equivalent to what is done in UL’s laboratories, and address our customers’ need for a faster certification process,” said Hoa Pham, technical manager for Durables, Label and Packaging Materials.

As part of the process, a series of tests are conducted on all substrates, inks and ribbons being considered for use in the production of the label, including legibility, defacement, chemical exposure, accelerated weathering, humidity exposure, oven aging, adhesion and abrasion.

“These tests certify the label material has passed rigorous processes and ensure the performance of the label will be permanent and legible once attached to a product–even under extreme conditions,” Pham said.
