This Caution Contains PCBs Label uses safety text and/or images for chemical safety protocol and compliance. A Caution Contains PCBs Label is a useful device to help protect the health and safety of personnel, but is not an alternative for required protective measures for eliminating or abating hazards.

About InfiniStick™ Labels

  • InfiniStick Mounting Surfaces

We engineered our InfiniStick™ labels for maximum adhesiveness and durability. InfiniStick™ labels are made with Brimar’s specially formulated adhesive and ultra-durable vinyl and can withstand the most challenging conditions without peeling off. Safe for use between -20° to 176° F and capable of sticking to a wide range of smooth and rough surfaces, InfiniStick™ labels are ideal for nearly any application.

InfiniStick™ labels adhere to a wide range of surfaces, making them perfect for use outdoors, in industrial settings, on machines, containers, vehicles, and more. For maximum adhesion, simply wipe the surface clean, remove the film from the label, and stick.

  • InfiniStick Mounting Surfaces

Thanks to their durability and versatility, InfiniStick™ labels will remain in place and effective for years, saving you money compared to standard labels, which must be replaced more frequently. Whether your label contains a safety warning, hazard rating, or any other directive, you can count on the resilience of labels made with InfiniStick™ technology.

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 image of 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.
