A NEW LABEL for agricultural chemicals has been launched to provide more space for increasing levels of safety and product information.
The Triband fold-out waterproof label has 200% more space than standard labels, said Sebastian Lawrence-Mills from Greys Packaging, which developed the label.
It was originally designed specifically for Nufarm UK and is being used on one of their broad-leaved grassland herbicides. The company is also in talks with other leading players in the agrochemical industry, he said.
“For many manufacturers the easiest way to comply with legislation has been to print Material Safety Data Sheets on the label.
“This has created a real challenge as the quantity of information to be displayed has increased but the space available on drums and containers is still very limited,” he said.
