Certifications and certificates

HERMA Self-adhesive Materials with BS 5609 certificate,Section 2 (seawater resistance)

For most products used in the chemical industry, certification in accordance with "British Standard 5609, Section 2" is required. Compliance with this requirement means that the affixed and unprinted label can be stored for 3 months in seawater, without the risk of it coming away from the surface to which it was affixed. This allows labelled containers to be transported by sea without any problems. Thereby the combination of face stock material and adhesive is decisive/crucial. With our UV cured Acrylic and Dispersion Emulsion Adhesives from HERMA you can meet the challenges.
