Considerations - what you need to know when choosing pipe markers:
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.

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.
