Labels provide users with critical safety-related information for a wide variety of products. Government regulations, codes, distributors and retailers often require electrical and electronic products to be permanently marked with specific safety-related information, including hazards, warnings, cautionary markings, installation instructions and electrical ratings. Compliance with these requirements helps ensure that the labels will adhere to the application surface and that the text conveying the product’s intended use will remain legible.
