Electronic or powered equipment that requires UL/cUL certification must be labeled with an approved system under the Marking and Labeling Systems program. Zebra Technologies offers one of the largest selections of labels and supplies accepted by UL/cUL.
Labels are also critical for electronic components. Labels for printed circuit boards need to withstand the high heat and harsh chemicals used in the PCB manufacturing process and must often have antistatic properties.

A label with a Unique Device Identifier (UDI) is required for all levels of medical device packaging and the device itself if it could be used more than once. UDI device labels may need to be UL/cUL compliant depending on the medical device, and UDI device labels must meet UL standards and be able to withstand extreme environments such as sterilization and harsh hospital cleaning agents.

Labels intended for outdoor use, such as utility or equipment marking and lumber and wire tagging, must be resistant to damage from water, oil, and chemicals and stay readable even after exposure to bright sunlight, heat, and freezing cold. When printing with a direct thermal mobile printer for outdoor applications, use Zebra’s Thermalock solution, a long-lasting, high-performance polypropylene label that is fade and heat resistant and tested to last outdoors for up to 18 months.
Choose labels designed specifically so label material and adhesives won’t fail in sub-zero temperatures. Also consider whether the label will be used in dry environments or where condensation and moisture when items are transferred could be an issue.

Tamper-evident product labels and security labels are used to reveal tampering of closed packaging or access points. Solutions range from those that leave an adhesive pattern showing that the label seal has been broken to labels made of destructible material, such as Zebra’s Z-Destruct products, that break into small pieces if there is an attempt to remove the label.
