Understanding the Advantages of Plastics Preselection Testing

Understand the advantages of plastics pre-selection testing and learn how to navigate a UL Yellow Card.

A Yellow Card surrounded by pellets and test pieces

The Yellow Card, formally known as UL’s Plastics Recognition Program, is a globally respected digital product information card that lists multiple safety and performance-related properties for a polymeric material tested by UL to appropriate standards. The Yellow Card provides substantial information on safety certification and performance testing in an extremely compact, simple and easy-to-read format. The Yellow Card provides verification that a material is appropriate for specific applications and helps ensure that the manufacturer is using a tested and UL Certified material. 

In this webinar, you will gain a detailed understanding of:

  • What is a UL Yellow Card.
  • What's on it.
  • How to use it.

Using UL tested and certified components, identifiable through the UL Recognized Components Mark on the Yellow Card, can help save you time and money by eliminating the need for further material testing.
