ARMOR Ribbons and UL/CSA
When you see a label that includes the “UL” symbol, it means Underwriter Laboratory has tested the product for safety. The UL Component label itself must also receive UL approval to be used to supply product information regarding safety, usage, regulations, and the product’s origins. The label must remain affixed to the product and legible throughout its lifecycle. The standard ANSI/UL 969 evaluates label adhesion and material resistance to determine durability, whether the product is meant to be used indoors or outdoors.
Similarly, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA), which tests and certifies products for safety, energy efficiency, and sustainability, requires that labels carrying its North American or international marks, will remain intact and attached to products throughout their use.
UL/CSA Testing for Ribbons and Labels
The UL Component label must last from year to year — or owner to owner — to provide information on how to safely use the products. Tests for UL/CSA compliance include extreme temperature or humidity levels, immersion in water, and exposure to sunlight, solvents, oil, and other chemicals. The tests give an indication of how the label will withstand environmental conditions through the course of its normal use.
