Drum and Container Labels

Drum and container labels are regularly exposed to harsh environments; they must be durable and meet the requirements of various demanding applications. Durable laser and inkjet facestocks are designed to endure exposure in severe environmental conditions and corrosive chemicals in a range of industries. We combine these tough facestocks with adhesives for difficult applications. 

Durable drum labels must adhere to GHS (Globally Harmonized System) standards as to how chemical and hazardous information is communicated and displayed. Whether your company is looking for custom high-quality, durable facestock labeling material for corrosive and dangerous applications, or require label material to ship non-hazardous products Wausau Coated understands the importance of the performance of these products.
