GHS/Ultra Heavy Duty Labels

Highest durability and adhesive performance

Avery Ultra Heavy Duty Labels are excellent for applications where durability and water resistance is required. Also for containers with a tight radius (eg Test Tubes) where the conformability of the material combined with the strength of the adhesive makes this the ideal solution.

The material is BS5609 Part 2 (label & adhesive durability) certified and is approved for Chemical Hazard Labelling (GHS - labelling of chemicals for transport by sea/air).

Product Features:


A unique 110gsm material which looks and prints like paper but is highly durable (chemical and abrasion resistant)

  • Strong, non-tear in one direction. Once applied, it is tear-resistant and is almost impossible to remove.
  • Waterproof: Passes BS5609 Section 2, 90-day sea water submersion adhesion test
  • Conformable (making it easier to apply to curved surfaces)
  • Steam sterilisable


Specifically designed for labelling strongly curved, rough, dusty or oily surfaces, rubber and chemical containers.

  • Resistant to light, heat and ageing
  • Marine grade UV acrylic adhesive
  • Minimum application temperature: 0°C
  • Temperature range: -40°C to 150°C
  • Tack and final adhesion: extremely high.

Smaller Ultra Heavy Duty Labels

We have also in the range some smaller size labels with the same features for different uses: eg. sample tubes. Because we understand that you need the same tough material in your environment but in a smaller size.
