Cling Tite Pipe Markers

What you need to know...

360° wrap around pipe markers are easy to see from all angles and won’t break down under harsh conditions. Legends are printed on the underside of chemical-resistant, 7-mil polyester and further protected by a 1-mil polyester backing. Scratches, abrasions, and chemical splashes do not affect the sub-surface printed legend. Dirt, dust, and liquids wipe off the cleanable, glossy surface. Flexible marker installs quickly, and is designed to wrap completely around the pipe. A heavy duty vinyl strip along the top leading edge provides a tight cling seal to securely fasten the marker in place. Marker legends are printed upright and upside-down making them viewable from any direction along with directional arrows. Ideal for use on higher temperature pipes with range of -40° to 302°F.
Ships & stores flat. Installs easily like a Snap TiteTM. Available up to 30" wide.

Letter height & pipe marker size:

  • Outside diameter of pipe
  • Length of pipe marker color field
  • Size of letters

Legend:

  • The legend on the marker gives the name of the contents in full or abbreviated form
  • Arrows should be used to indicate direction of flow.

Color:

  • Colors identify the characteristic hazards of the contents of the piping system

Visibility & Location:

  • Where pipe lines are located high or low, place the lettering below or above the horizontal centerline of the pipe
  • Affix markers onto piping close to valves or flanges and adjacent to changes in direction, branches, and where pipes pass through walls or floors
  • 25' to 50' intervals on long straight pipe runs

A brief synopsis from the ASME and OSHA about pipe marking.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers
A13.1 – 2007 Scheme for the Identification of Piping Systems

. . . a uniform system for the identification of piping contents has been established to warn personnel when the piping contents are inherently hazardous . . . this standard has been prepared to specify the identification of the contents of piping systems on the basis of legends, it also suggests the use of color as a supplementary means of identifying the type of hazard of the material contained in the system.

Pipe markers are designed to meet or exceed ASME (ANSI) A13.1-2007 recommendations for size, color and visibility.
