The right label material for your pharmaceutical product

Pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging label durability is vital in pharma applications – pharmaceutical labels contain essential dosage or safety information that needs to remain in place and legible for the entire life of the product. From low migration label materials with low leachability characteristics to specialized materials that can withstand demanding conditions, our label material specification guide summarizes the key things you should consider to succeed in pharmaceutical and healthcare labeling.



Choosing the right label

Vial, bottle, infusion bag or syringe? Selecting the right label material for the container is essential to safeguarding the integrity of the product. From small volume size containers such as vials and ampules to solutions that stick reliably to cylindrical containers, discover why it’s important to consider the size and shape of the container when selecting a label.
