Standard Paper vs Durable Industrial Labels

Avery understands there's a big difference in adhesion strength and material requirements when labelling in industrial environments. But what are industrial labels? How do they differ from standard paper labels?

  • Standard paper labels are designed for general indoor applications. These labels are not waterproof or tear-proof, so they can easily get damaged in harsher environments. 
  • Industrial heavy-duty labels offer a stronger solution that can resist extreme temperatures and even chemicals.

The construction of Avery's industrial-grade, heavy-duty labels ensures the labels stick to nearly any surface, such as 

  • Metal.
  • Wood (pallets).
  • Glass.
  • Plastic and more.

They have an extra layer of plastic film for increased strength and durability. 

This extra layer means you don't need to worry about labels peeling off or becoming illegible due to weather conditions or contact with rough surfaces.

Our labels are engineered to withstand the range of conditions and hazards found in harsh industrial environments such as warehousing and logistics, manufacturing, laboratories and construction sites.

They can be used for

  • Safety warnings.
  • Asset tracking.
  • Hazard signs.
  • Barcoding and labelling.
  • High-temperature applications.
  • Corrosive chemical storage.
  • Industrial machinery labels.
  • Outdoor signs and markings.
  • Cold storage labels.
  • And more!
