EV Battery Labels: Custom Printed And Compliant
Are you an OEM interested in custom printed EV battery labels? Let PSG help!
PSG’s Custom Printed EV Battery Labels
Printed labels are an essential part of any product, but especially so for batteries due to their chemical makeup. Batteries contain dangerous chemicals that must be labeled carefully in order to prevent injuries and environmental damage. With the rise of low emission electric cars, there is a new need for high-quality electric vehicle (EV) battery labels.
EV batteries require labels with very unique characteristics, given the high amount of heat and elemental exposure. PSG prints custom electric vehicle battery labels that are engineered to perform well in these high voltage EV applications.
The process of labeling EV batteries can be a complicated one. In order to comply with the law, you have to have an understanding of what is considered a battery and how some types are more hazardous than others. Failure to label your EV batteries correctly could result in fines from OSHA or EPA violations
*If you’re unsure about the requirements, you can reach out to one of our label solutions experts to get the proper custom label for battery cells, battery packs, and wire harnesses.
Our custom printed EV battery labels can withstand the elements.
What Are Some Battery Characteristics?
Most consumers are unaware that electric vehicles require a battery that must be labeled with their contents. The EV industry is currently becoming more popular and as the market expands, there will be an increase in demand for labels to meet this need. There are two types of batteries: lead acid and lithium ion. The main difference between these two types is how they store power. Lead acid batteries have been around for many years because it has a low cost per kWh but also has a high self discharge rate which means it cannot provide reliable power storage for long periods of time without regular charging. Lithium-ion on the other hand is considered one of the most efficient ways to store energy, can hold its charge for longer periods of time due to better thermal management.
When it comes to the difference between labels on EV batteries, there are some important factors that purchasing agents should consider. The first thing is determining if the battery is lead acid or lithium ion. Lead acid has a longer lifespan and charge cycle than lithium ion does but also carries more weight. Lithium-ion batteries can carry up to twice as much power per kilogram, which makes them very convenient for electric vehicles with higher power requirements like Tesla cars. But they don’t last nearly as long, with most only lasting 2-3 years before needing replacement due to their high demand in the market of EVs these days. Another factor is what voltage each type of battery has; most often 12 volts.
PSG also prints a wide of assortment of EV battery labels and heavy-duty industrial labels for other applications.
