Durachem – Chemical Resistant Labels For The Food Processing Industry
Food manufacturing and processing presents some unique and difficult labeling situations and DuraLabel has the answers.
In the food processing industry chemicals are used for cleaning in place (CIP) and sanitizing. Chemicals and detergents are used to clean vats, coils, tubing, submerging and turning devices. Overhead structures, shields, walls, ceilings, lighting fixtures, refrigeration, heating, and ventilation systems must all be cleaned.
Labels and signs are necessary to provide safety information, operating instructions, cleaning procedures, and to identify equipment and materials. The best location for a label or sign is the location where the information is needed. That location may not be the driest location, nor a location that is free from washdown and cleaning solutions. That means DuraChem labels are needed.
DuraChem labels are made using DuraChem supplies from DuraLabel. They combine a durable polyester tape that has a proprietary topcoat, with a unique ribbon. The ink from the ribbon chemically bonds with the topcoat to form a permanent image that is extremely chemical resistant. Combined with a specially formulated acrylic adhesive, the result are permanent, durable labels and signs that continue to clearly deliver their important information year after year.
Durachem labels have an extreme chemical resistance to washdowns and immersions.
Water is used extensively in food processing and this means all labels and signs labels and signs must be able to survive wet conditions. But that's easy compared with some of the other substances labels in the food processing industry must survive, such as acetone and other cleaning, chelating, emulsifying and wetting chemicals. Labels and signs made with DuraChem supplies are resistant to all of these.
Labels and signs made with DuraChem supply are resistant to a wide range of chemicals and substances, such as:
- D. Alcohol
- Purple Cleaner
- Mineral Spirits
- Roller Cleaner
- Goof Off
- Motor Oil
- Lenium ES
- Transmission Fluid
- Brake Fluid
- Hydraulic Jack Oil
DuraChem supplies comply with the Federal Drug Administration's regulation for use where indirect food contact may occur (21 CFR 175.105).
