Hazard pictograms – Marking tape

The hazard symbols consist of laminated, self-adhesive, environmentally friendly polypropylene (PP). The material can withstand water, oil and most acids, alkalis and is adapted to withstand all harsh environments, both indoors and outdoors. The text is protected against wear by a laminated surface layer. The label tape can withstand temperatures up to 120 ° C and is UV-resistant.

The danger symbols in the form of marking tape are available in three different widths:

50 mm x 30 m marking tape with 30 mm symbols
75 mm x 30 m marking tape with 60 mm symbols
160 mm x 10 m marking tape with 60 mm symbols for 2 + 4 symbols, 30 mm for 3 symbols

Hazard pictograms – Signs and decals

All danger symbols can be ordered as signs and decals. We have developed a standard version of each sign where it comes in the recommended size and material. If you wish to adapt your fire sign, it is possible to adapt the sign as desired on each product page.

The danger symbols can be purchased as a sign in plastic, self-adhesive decal or sign in aluminum.

Hazard pictograms for marking


It is important that chemical products are labeled with the correct type of hazard symbols with associated risk and safety information in the relevant language, in accordance with the current CLP Regulation. The chemical warning symbols you should know can be found here:

Danger symbol:

Toxic. The product / substance can cause life-threatening damage if inhaled, contaminated or eaten.

Danger symbol:

Corrosive. The product / substance can corrode the skin, throat or damage the eyes. Also symbolizes products that can damage metal surfaces by corrosion.

Danger symbol:
Cause of damage

Cause of damage. The product causes damage when inhaled, in contact with skin or when consumed / eaten. Also used for products that can cause allergic reactions when exposed to skin, that irritate the skin, eyes or respiratory tract or have a sedative effect.

Danger symbol:
Danger to health

Harmful to health. This danger symbol indicates that the product may cause DNA-damaging damage or cause other permanent damage such as cancer. Also used to indicate that the product may cause chemical damage during consumption or exposure.

Danger symbol:
Harmful to the environment

Harmful to the environment. The product / substance is harmful to underwater environments, both in the short and long term. It must be stored and used in such a way that it does not adversely affect the ecosystem.

Danger symbol:
Pressurized gases

Pressurized gases. The product is under pressure or very chilled. The storage container may cause an explosion in case of fire from outside.

Danger symbol:

Inflammable. The product is flammable and can flare up violently when lit or if heat is applied. Some products may emit flammable gas vapors on contact with water or catch unprovoked fire in contact with air.

Danger symbol:
Oxygen oxidizing

Oxygen oxidizing. The product reacts with flames or may explode in contact with flammable substances or explosion in contact with flammable substances or substances.

Rules regarding marking of pipelines with hazard pictograms

Pipelines for gas or liquid that may pose a risk to health and safety must also be marked with danger symbols in accordance with current regulations from the Chemicals Inspectorate and the Explosives Inspectorate.

The CLP Regulation contains a hazard class called “gas under pressure”. It applies to gases with an overpressure of at least 200 kPa (2 bar). An otherwise harmless gas, e.g. air, with 200 kPa overpressure is classified as a hazardous chemical product according to CLP and must therefore be marked with the hazard pictogram gas under pressure, i.a. Compressed air. The pictogram is not required if the hazard pictogram for flammable or toxic is indicated.

Previous requirements to label dangerous pipelines for gas and liquid that could pose a risk to health and safety every 5 meters have been removed. Now the pipe marking must be clearly visible and can be detected at least once wherever you stand along the pipeline.

Frequently asked questions about our hazard symbols, hazard pictograms and warning symbols

Which products must be marked with danger symbols and warning symbols?

Most chemical products have dangerous properties that the consumer must be aware of, and must therefore be marked with so-called danger symbols or chemical warning symbols. This applies to all substances that have been classified as dangerous. Even certain mixtures, which are not classified as dangerous but contain dangerous substances, must be marked with warning symbols. The easiest way to know how to label a product is to look at the safety data sheet.

What does the CLP Regulation really say?

The CLP Regulation applies throughout the EU and the EEA countries. Before dangerous chemical products are sold, they must be classified, labeled and packaged in accordance with CLP. Products sold in Sweden must have Swedish labeling. It must be possible to offer safety data sheets to professional users.

How are hazard symbols used in chemistry?

There is a clear standard for danger symbols:

  • Faropictogram
  • Signal word
  • Hazard statements

All chemical products sold must be classified and labeled so that the product’s hazardous properties are clearly visible. Packaging must be labeled in the local language and contain:

  • Product name
  • Packaging volume
  • Topics included
  • Faropictogram
  • Signal word
  • Hazard statements

Contact information for the company that markets and / or sells the product must also be included.

What does the CLP label need to contain to be correct?

CLP labeling shall include standardized descriptions of hazardous properties and safe handling. The hazard pictograms and the signal words “Danger” or “Warning” alert the user to the danger.

Do I need to mark up with danger pictograms and warning symbols in e-commerce?

Yes. If you sell chemical products in a webshop, the dangerous properties of the products must be clearly visible on the website.

The consumer must be able to take part in the product’s dangerous properties before the purchase. The information should be in the local language and designed differently, depending on whether you sell mixtures or substances.

For mixtures, the requirements for CLP labeling only apply if you sell to private individuals, for substances, the requirements also apply to professional users.

How to label tubes with hazard pictograms?

Nowhere in AFS 2014: 43 does it say how big the danger pictograms should be.

It is enough that the danger pictogram itself is included on the label, the explanatory text does not have to be included. All hazard pictograms included in the safety data sheet for the product must also be included on the pipe marking. All non-flammable and toxic gases above 2 bar must also be marked with hazard pictogram GHS 04 “Gas under pressure” An otherwise harmless gas, e.g. air, with 2 bar overpressure is classified as a hazardous chemical product according to CLP and must therefore be marked with the hazard pictogram gas under pressure, i.a. compressed air.
