UL/cUL Compliance and Adoption Program

What is UL and cUL Recognition?

For a label material to have UL recognition, it must pass a series of durability tests and remain legible. The testing includes exposure to a range of temperature, as well as exposure to various chemicals, including cooking oil, motor oil, laundry detergents, cleaning solutions and gasoline, along with many other solvents and chemicals. Materials must also pass abrasion testing and remain legible.

Flat Fee Adoptions with UL/cUL

Working with UL, we have developed an industry leading adoption program. Once you identify the product you require for an application, you will fill out a simple request with UL to adopt.

The total cost for UL adoption depends on several factors, such as addition of cUL recognition and amount of overlaminating films needed. Regardless of the total cost, FLEXcon will credit these charges back to your account once you hit a specific sales target, so your actual cost to adopt a FLEXcon product is zero. If you add additional inks or surfaces, UL will assign additional costs to the adoption.

FLEXcon's technical experts will guide you through this process.
