Chemical Labeling

A Systems Approach to Chemical Labeling

Today’s requirements for accurate label content are more complex than ever before. Key factors driving this complexity may include industry compliance, customer requirements, international regulations, and internal content requirements to name a few.

  • ERP - Order, product and production information

  • Safety - Warning and handling instructions based on ingredients

  • Regulatory - Encompassing safety and regulatory information for GHS, DOT, NFPA, WHMIS and the like

  • Brand- Logos and private label requirements

Adaptive Data takes a systems approach to chemical labeling. “It’s all about making it easier for the operators to print complete and accurate labels by taking information from multiple sources and integrating them into a single platform for chemical labeling”, says Mike Barker of ADI”. That platform is ADI POWERPRINT.

But don’t take our word for it. Read the case study showcasing our solution at a Specialty Chemical Manufacturer in Ohio. The Company’s Regulatory Specialist asked, “How do we do this better?” The answer . . . a streamlined label printing process that saved them time and money.

With required information coming from a number of sources, getting it right every time can be time consuming and errors can be costly. This is providing a reason for industry to re-examine their labeling and data management practices and what they’re discovering is looking at label printing as a system rather than a stand-alone activity is providing opportunities to reduce cost, reduce waste and save time.
