We are often asked whether we provide a chemical labelling service by customers requiring us to manufacture and package custom-made chemicals. Although our products are, by default, delivered bearing the ReAgent logo, we do offer a fully customisable labelling service and a variety of options to custom-label your chemicals to your exact specifications.

Chemical labelling services
There are various ways in which we can support customizable labelling. You can:
- Supply your own physical labels, and we will attach them to your packaging
- Supply label designs that we can simply print on suitable material for your needs and attach to your packaging
- Provide label designs that we can resize or update to suit your packaging and then attach
In some cases, we can also support you with label design. In all cases, we ensure that labels meet compliance regulations and local standards and are of the highest quality.
All the chemicals we supply, no matter the packaging they come in, are correctly labelled to describe the type of product inside, display appropriate warning symbols and instructions on how to store and handle the product to help and protect end-users.
We follow the BS 5609 labelling standard, which states that labels on chemical packaging must be durable so that information will be legible for as long as possible.
Bottle labelling service
We are most frequently asked about labelling bottles of chemicals. In this instance, we use durable laser print polyethylene to make our labels, guaranteeing the best quality for every bottle. We also offer a range of standard sizes, as well as the option to specify custom dimensions. Our standard sizes are:
- 2 to view – 148x210mm
- 4 to view – 105x148mm
- 8 to view – 74x105mm
- 14 to view – 40x97mm
About chemical labelling
All chemical labels must meet set requirements, regulations, and compliance legislation. The Classification, Labelling, and Packaging (CLP) regulation is based on the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System (GHS), an international standard created to replace the assortment of hazardous material labelling schemes previously used around the world. The CLP ensures a high level of protection of health and the environment, as well as the free movement of chemical substances.
Chemical labels must communicate hazards, and must include:
- Supplier contact details
- Product identifiers
- Where applicable, hazard pictograms, signal words, hazard statements, precautionary statements, and other information required by relevant legislation
