FLEXcon Offers CSA-Listed Labels to Customers


FLEXcon Company,
, a global producer of adhesive coating and laminating, today
announced its base films and overlaminate products will be listed by CSA
– an internationally-recognized standards development,
testing, inspection and certification organization. This will be
accomplished through the introduction of an economical adoption
program of CSA-tested labeling components
. Testing by CSA Group
helps to ensure that materials used in the end products will comply with
applicable standards.

Manufactured products such as durable goods, consumer electronics,
automotive and medical devices are tested to rigorous safety and
performance requirements before applicable certification marks or labels
are awarded. These labels themselves also must meet specific durability
and performance requirements based on the application and usage
environment. For companies like FLEXcon, this new label component
listing service helps to demonstrate appropriate due diligence to OEMs
and converters.

"FLEXcon respects the pressure today's business climate places on our
customers and their customers. FLEXcon has chosen to seek testing from
CSA Group to help ensure that the safety and warning labels, as well as
all labels required in the durable product industry, have been tested to
meet the requirements of the applicable standard," said Ron Ducharme,
Market Development Specialist at FLEXcon. "We will be testing our
durable product labeling materials that are printable via thermal
transfer, UV inkjet, screen, and/or flexo to the most recent CSA
standard – CSA C22.2 No. 0.15. In addition, the adoption program
will help lower initial costs."

Customers can select any of the following FLEXcon® brand
products for use with UV inkjet inks, available in Quick-Ship and
pre-finished inventory:

  • Classics Plus®
  • COMPUcal® EXCEL™
  • DPM®
  • DPM® LSE™
