CILS ‘UL recognized’ durable label range helps manufacturers meet UL compliance

CILS range of durable, printable blank labels enabling customers worldwide to print their own UL recognized component labels.

The durable label range from CILS includes 30 different materials which have been tested and recognized by Underwriters Laboratories under UL 969 Marking and Labeling Systems standard ready for intended use on components sold in both the USA (PGJI2) and Canada (PGJI8).

The CILS labels directly benefit manufacturers as they remove the need for a product or component to be submitted to UL for label durability testing after the label has been applied, saving time and avoiding the associated fees. The labels are designed to perform in all industrial environments and conditions offering manufacturers a permanent labeling solution for marking products with specific safety-related information including electrical ratings, hazards, warnings, cautionary markings and installation instructions under the UL’s Component Certification Program.

CILS Managing Director Oliver Stockton commented;

“We regularly help with urgent inquiries where a label has not been considered as a component, has been overlooked, is not UL recognized, is recognized to the wrong standard, or is a later addition to an existing UL recognized product.

Worst of all and where we receive the highest numbers of inquiries is where the label purchaser did not know that the UL labels that they had bought only had approval for indoor use and fail on the intended application. 

We fully understand UL labeling classifications and their relevance to specific customers’ component applications. Combining this knowledge with our expertise in durable label technology we have worked closely with UL to develop a brand new range of 30 blank, printable labels which carry PGJI2 and PGJI8 approval.

We are now perfectly positioned to satisfy our customers’ requests for blank durable labels that are both fit for purpose and meet customers UL approval criteria.”
