About PCBs

PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls) are most commonly found in electrical equipment such as transformers, klystrons, capacitors, and fluorescent light ballasts that were manufactured before 1979. PCB-containing equipment or PCB- contaminated material is strictly regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

  • Regulations require that all equipment or items (in use or decommissioned) that contain a PCB concentration greater than 50 ppm must be labeled as PCB contaminated.

PCB Hazards

PCBs are known to cause chronic reproductive effects, gastric disorders, and skin lesions in laboratory animals, and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified PCBs as probable human carcinogens. In humans and animals, PCBs accumulate in fatty tissues. In the environment, PCBs degrade very slowly, so they pose a risk to animals all along a food chain because they bio-accumulate.

PCB Label Requirements:

  • All electrical equipment that contains more than 50 ppm PCBs must be prominently labeled as PCB contaminated.
  • When a PCB item is decommissioned, the date it was put out of service must be included on the label.
  • To dispose of PCB-contaminated items, request a container from Waste Management (WM) by indicating the type of waste and "PCBs" on the Hazardous Waste Pickup and Empty Container Request Form.1 (see link to form below)
  • The delivered container will be marked both as "Hazardous Waste" and with the yellow PCB label.
  • If the PCB concentration is unknown, testing and analysis may be called for, as determined by WM.

Safety Signs Objectives:

The yellow PCB label with black printing identifies PCB-contaminated hazardous waste. That is, the PCB concentration is or may be above 50 ppm. The primary waste that falls into this category is fluorescent light ballasts, but this label is also used for PCB storage areas as well as PCB containers that hold such waste as soil, oil, and also wipes that have been used to clean a PCB related spill.

The viewing distances listed in this chart reflect the maximum viewing distance for the sign under favorable viewing conditions.
Favorable viewing conditions are those which allow for a clear, unobstructed view of the message on the sign. Examples of favorable viewing conditions are a bright lighting source over the sign, clear weather conditions, and a clear line of sight with no obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles and no other nearby signs creating distractions.
In unfavorable conditions, the sign is viewable at up to half the favorable distance. Unfavorable viewing conditions are those which make it difficult to read the message of the sign. Examples of this are poor lighting such as a dimly lit room, obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles, poor weather conditions, and other signs posted nearby which create a distraction.
It is the responsibility of the end user to determine the correct size, viewing distance, sign positioning, and sign size for your specific hazard. According to the ANSI Z353.2 sign standard, a ratio of 25 feet of viewing distance per inch of text height, under favorable viewing conditions, should be used to determine the size of your sign. Under unfavorable viewing conditions, such as in low light or for signs with complex messages, the ratio of viewing distance to text height is 12.5 feet to 1 inch.

Using the latest digital printing technologies and processes, your Caution Contains PCBs Label has text and graphics printed directly onto the substrate without lamination. Using UV inks, your label text and graphics will not peel, unlike labels from companies that laminate graphics over the label material. These advanced practices also eliminate set-up charges and minimums. Your set-up time is also greatly reduced, allowing to print your Caution Contains PCBs Label quickly and have them shipped out fast.

Printing Methods

We choose our printing processes for each product carefully so you receive the best quality product at the lowest price with industry-leading turnaround times. Depending on your size, material, quantity, and other factors, your sign will print using one of our carefully-tested methods.

SafetySign Printing
Cross-Hatch Ink Adhesion Test’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.

We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.

SafetySign Printing

The text is printed in Arial Black font.

The Caution Contains PCBs Label from uses this font to create a bold message that stands out in order to grab your attention, while also remaining clearly legible at the maximum safe viewing distance of the product.
