Pipe marking is a visual communication tool to identify the function, content and flow direction of pipes. To prevent accidents and improve safety for employees working near piping systems, it is crucial that companies in certain industries are equipped with pipe markings.
In almost all countries there are laws and standards that require pipelines carrying hazardous substances to be marked. These markings are part of a ‘Health and Safety Sign System’ that must be present in every workplace.
A global standard to bring consistency to the marking of piping and the ISO 14726. ISO 14726 is a standard that provides guidance on the use of colours and marking for the identification of piping systems on ships and marine structures. The standard specifies the colours and markings to be used for different types of systems and fluids, such as seawater, fuel oil, and compressed air. It also provides guidelines for the size and placement of labels and the use of symbols and abbreviations. ISO 14726 helps to ensure consistent and clear identification of piping systems, which is essential for safety, maintenance, and repair work on ships and offshore structures. The standard is widely used by shipbuilders, ship operators, and other stakeholders in the maritime industry.
In brief, good pipe marking helps identify the function, content and flow direction of pipes, creating a safer environment for your employees and making sure you meet all required standards and regulations.
PreCoiled PolyesPro® pipe markings are pre-made (or preformed) strips that are not self-adhesive, but ‘folded’ around the pipe to fit any kind of piping system. The strips are very easy to apply, but also to remove, because they are non-adhesive like many other pipe markers.
This makes PreCoiled pipe marking unique because the strips can be removed and reused. A big plus if you are looking for an easy pipe marking system that is also sustainable.
PreCoiled PolyesPro® Pipe Marking is made of a high-performance non-PVC polyester with a 3M™ base polyester material. The strips are printed with LED UV Inkjet on a 3M™ Configured Printer and a 3M™ Protective Laminate.
The production of our PolyesPro® Pipe Markings is all in-house, and can therefore be produced completely to your requirements. The removable PolyesPro® Pipe Marking film can include warning signs, GHS symbol, pipe origin and destination, line number and even QR and bar codes in addition to pipe contents.
Our PreCoiled PolyesPro® pipe marking is developed especially for the maritime, offshore, petrochemical and refinery industry. Pipe marking systems in these industries can be tricky because of their location (indoor and outdoor) or because pipes often contain dangerous substances with sometimes extreme temperatures. But pipes can also be oily and greasy.
With our pipe marking, this is no problem! PreCoiled PolyesPro® pipe marking can be used on all piping systems, inside and outside. They are even UV-resistant, making sure your pipe marking colours stay highly visible.
