Phenolic labels and phenolic tags are commonly used in the electrical industry. The characteristics of these labels and tags make them the perfect choice for electrical applications.
Those characteristics are:
- Made of a non-conductive material (Phenolic/Lamicoid)
- Highly resistant to heat
- Brightly colored (highly visible)
- UV stable (will not fade)
Phenolic/Lamicoid plastics have long been used in a wide range of applications, due to their hard-wearing properties.
There’s more to phenolic plastics than just their durability, however. Phenolic labels offer a wide range of benefits that make them ideal for use in a host of situations. Read on as we take a look at four perfect applications for phenolic labels.
1. Electrical Panels
The last thing you want anywhere near electricity are metal labels.
That’s why phenolic labels are the perfect solution for electrical panels. Phenolic plastic won’t conduct electricity; in fact, it’s often used in electrical insulation. This means that using a phenolic label for your electrical panels allows you to affix safety warnings without fear of additional risk.

2. Switch Plates
By the same token, if you need to label electrical switches, phenolic labels are also a perfect choice.
They will offer clear labeling of all your switches in a hardy material that will need very little maintenance. More importantly, they won’t conduct electricity should anything go wrong with the switches themselves. They’re also highly scratch-proof, so your labeling will be clear for years to come.
3. Maritime Signage
Another problem you will find with metal signage is that it is highly prone to rust.
Phenolic labels have no such problems. They are highly water-resistant, and so make them the perfect choice for maritime signage. Whether you’re looking for signage for a boat or safety signage for your boatyard, a phenolic label will give you years of service without degradation.
4. Machinery Signage
Another great quality of phenolic plastic is that it is very strong. It is resistant to impact as well as vibration.
This makes phenolic labels perfect for use of machinery, particularly heavy machinery that puts out a lot of vibration. Where a metal label might easily warp or crack, a phenolic label will put up with the toughest conditions.
If you need labels for your machinery, then phenolic labels are the best choice.
