Durable and industrial labels are at the core of what makes Coast Label a precision label manufacturer. That’s why we work so hard to always be on the cutting edge of industrial labels. Industrial labels are made to adhere to electronics, heavy machinery, barrels, floors, and storage racks so they have to be incredibly durable. We also provide you with graphic overlays when needed. Not sure exactly what materials you need? Our team of specialists is trained to provide the guiding steps to help identify the correct combination of materials, inks, laminations to make your project succeed. Have a specific construction that you need to match or improve upon? We are comfortable and well versed in working with specification drawings and quality documents.
Perhaps more importantly, when it comes to industrial labels, we recognize that the technical and precise requirements of each project are different. Because of this, we approach each project as a partner, helping you craft a custom solution specific to your unique needs.
For example, durable can mean resistance to moisture, or solvents, or weather, or abrasion, or exposure to UV light, or cold temperatures, or more. Our team works with you to determine what durable means to you and then provides a technical solution. We have a large selection of durable stock materials, and access to even more custom materials through our extensive ISO-vetted supplier network.
In addition, we also offer UL Recognition on a range of durable materials for industrial labels including metal and access to the full range of 3M high-performance label stocks and adhesives through our 3M Select Converter access. So let us help you be a hero, and design the correct durable label product for your needs.

Industrial Labels Solutions
An industrial equipment rental company based in Arizona needed an easy way to identify equipment in the field. The team at Coast Label worked closely with them to develop a QR code label that could be easily scanned by their technicians’ mobile devices.
Due to the high sun exposure their products often encountered, we utilized special UV fade-resistant inks to increase the longevity of the industrial labels. To protect from the extreme heat and sand that was often common in the job sites, we suggested a durable scratch-resistant layer to protect the inks from abrasion. And throughout the entire development cycle of the label, we provide material samples and guidance that resulted in a well thought out product that met the customers needs and use case.
Custom Industrial Labels
The rough conditions of industry require industrial product labels and stickers that are just as tough. In order to be truly durable, custom industrial labels need to remain legible through all conditions. Labels that tear or peel just won’t do. Adhesives that come unstuck made for an unsafe worksite. That’s why at Coast Label we use specialty adhesives, durable label materials, and long lasting ink for custom industrial labels that will endure the harshest conditions
Layers of an Industrial Product Label
When it comes to designing your custom industrial labels, there are a lot of factors to consider that will affect the durability. That’s because labels are made up of multiple layers. Each layer can be customized to fit your exact needs.
- Adhesive–the kind of adhesive used will depend on the surface the label will be sticking to. Conditions like heat and chemicals will affect how an adhesive performs.
- Facestock–this is the top of the label, where everything will be printed on. With a wide selection of facestocks to choose from, we can make sure your labels won’t tear in industrial conditions.
- Liner–this is the backing of the label. The liner used will depend on the adhesive. Quality liners make printing easier.
- Top coat–not all labels use a top coat. However, when you need your label to resist moisture or chemical exposure, a top coat will ensure the durability of the label.
