Dry ice labels are engineered for resilience in the extreme cold, crucial for maintaining clarity and adherence at temperatures as low as -78.5°C (-109.3°F). These labels are indispensable in a variety of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, laboratories, and the food industry, ensuring vital information like sample identification and safety instructions remains legible despite the challenging conditions of dry ice storage and transport. Their robustness against condensation and their compatibility with various adhesives make them a reliable choice to prevent data loss, safety risks, and non-compliance issues. Opt for our dry ice labels to safeguard the integrity of your sensitive materials, enhance organizational efficiency, and ensure strict adherence to regulatory standards in ultra-cold environments.

    • Temperature Resistance: Dry ice labels are designed to withstand ultra-low temperatures associated with dry ice, which can be as cold as -78.5°C (-109.3°F).
    • Adhesive Compatibility: Labels feature adhesives formulated to adhere to dry ice surfaces, even in extremely cold conditions, ensuring labels stay in place during transportation and storage.
    • Durability: Dry ice labels are durable and resistant to moisture, preventing smudging, fading, or disintegration when exposed to the cold and condensation formed by dry ice.
    • Legibility: Labels allow for clear and precise printing of information, including text, symbols, hazard warnings, and handling instructions, for safety and identification purposes.
    • Safety Warnings: Dry ice labels often include safety warnings and hazard symbols to inform personnel of the potential dangers associated with dry ice, such as extreme cold and suffocation risks.
  • Material Choices: Dry ice labels are typically made from materials suitable for extreme cold, such as cryogenic paper or synthetic materials.
  • Adhesive Type: Users may have the option to choose from different adhesive types, including permanent adhesives or removable adhesives, depending on their specific labeling needs.
  • Color and Finish: Labels may come in different colors and finishes (e.g. matte or glossy) to accommodate specific labeling requirements, including safety colors and visual identification.
  • Barcode and QR Code Printing: Dry ice labels can offer the option to print barcodes, QR codes, or other data matrix codes for tracking and traceability purposes.
  • Custom Printing: Customers can often order custom-printed dry ice labels with specific information, such as shipping details, hazard symbols, and contact information.
  • Variable Data Printing: Labels can be customized with variable data printing, allowing for unique information on each label, such as package contents, destination, or lot numbers.
  • Print Method Compatibility: We can make dry ice labels that are compatible with direct thermal printers, thermal transfer printers, laser printers, and inkjet printers.
  • Label Size and Shape: Dry ice labels may come in various sizes and shapes to accommodate different labeling needs and surfaces.
  • Shipping and Transportation: Dry ice labels are applied to packages and containers containing dry ice shipments to provide safety information, hazard warnings, and identification for handlers and carriers.
  • Laboratory and Research: Laboratories and research facilities use dry ice labels to label containers and storage units holding dry ice for experiments, sample preservation, and cryopreservation.
  • Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology: Pharmaceutical companies and biotech laboratories use dry ice labels to label containers of biologics, vaccines, and specimens preserved in dry ice during transport and storage.
  • Healthcare: Healthcare facilities use dry ice labels to label and identify medical and diagnostic specimens shipped in dry ice, ensuring proper handling and tracking.
  • Cold Chain Logistics: In the cold chain industry, dry ice labels are applied to packages and containers used for the transportation of temperature-sensitive products, such as vaccines, drugs, and biologics.
  • Food and Beverage: In the food industry, dry ice labels may be used to label dry ice packs used for the transportation and storage of perishable foods.
  • Manufacturing and Industrial: Manufacturing and industrial facilities use dry ice labels to mark containers of dry ice used for industrial processes, cooling, and cleaning.
  • Safety Compliance: Dry ice labels are essential for compliance with safety regulations, such as those outlined in the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations, for the safe handling and transport of dry ice.

1. What are dry ice labels?

Dry ice labels are adhesive labels specifically designed to withstand the extreme cold temperatures associated with dry ice storage and transportation, typically as low as -78.5°C (-109.3°F).

2. Why are dry ice labels important?

Regular labels may become brittle, lose adhesion, or become unreadable at dry ice temperatures. Dry ice labels ensure that important information on packages remains intact and legible in these extreme conditions.

3. What temperature range can dry ice labels withstand?

These labels are engineered to withstand temperatures as low as those of dry ice, typically around -78.5°C (-109.3°F). It's essential to check the specific temperature range for the product you choose.

4. Are dry ice labels moisture-resistant?

Yes, they are designed to resist moisture, which is crucial in dry ice environments where condensation can occur as temperatures fluctuate.

5. What materials are used in making dry ice labels?

They are typically made from materials like durable synthetics (polyester, vinyl) with strong adhesive properties that remain effective at extremely low temperatures.

6. Can dry ice labels be used for shipping biological specimens or pharmaceuticals?

Absolutely, they are commonly used in the shipping of sensitive biological materials and pharmaceuticals that require dry ice for preservation.

7. How do I choose the right dry ice label for my application?

Consider the specific temperature conditions, the type of container or packaging material the label will be applied to, and any compliance standards relevant to your industry.

8. Can dry ice labels be customized and printed on?

We offer customizable and printable options for dry ice labels, allowing for specific information, barcodes, and tracking details to be added.

9. How should dry ice labels be applied?

Ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and free from frost. Apply the label at room temperature before exposing it to dry ice conditions for optimal adhesion.

10. Are there environmental or health concerns associated with cleanroom labels?

Yes, especially for shipping hazardous materials or biological specimens. It's important to comply with transportation regulations like IATA for air transport, which often require specific labeling for dry ice packages.
