SPENCER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 31, 2018--FLEXcon Company, Inc., a global producer of adhesive coating and laminating, today announced its base films and overlaminate products will be listed by CSA Group – 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™ FLEXmark ® THERMLfilm SELECT ® THERMLfilm ® NEXgen™
