Label & Adhesive Specifications-

Only this exact combination of adhesive and substrates is approved for use. Using labels that are found to be out of specification by IFCO are sent cease and desist letters. Continued use of non-compliant labels that are also found to damage IFCO Systems assets and/or leave potentially hazardous residue and/or substrate fragments are held liable. Choosing a certified label for RPC's is critical, and Barcode Factory provides an economical and compliant choice of labels.



Dissolvable label washes off completely
IFCO research has identified labels which would be completely dissolvable in the wash process, and thereby eliminate the need for laborious scraping, and the costly loss of RPCs because of permanent label melding. A successful product was identified and has now been in use since 2015. A year later, Pederson reported that usage is starting to significantly increase, with several million of the dissolvable labels being used.
The dissolvable label cannot be used for certain products that come in contact with water, such as those requiring hydro cooling. The new label is showing good uptake for items such as the greenhouse sector, carrots, tree fruits, meat, and eggs.

Label - Approved Placement - Guidelines (see below)
  • Should only be applied to the short panel end walls
  • Should not be applied on the long side panels, bottom or inside the RPCs
  • Do not wrap label around handle
  • Only one label should be applied to each RPC and cannot be any larger than 4” wide x 2” tall (inches)
  • If using larger RPC, label should be placed on dimpled areas not on corner locks
  • Do not adhere labels under tines/card holder prongs, this is for cardstock only that is not glued to the RPC
  • For 6408, 6411 and 6413 only a film label may be used, not paper
  • Do not apply oversized pallet labels directly to RPCs but instead to the outer shrink wrap
