Abstract

Labels for cable identification comprise a fire-resistant clear vinyl material which has an area in which lettering or writing can be provided for cable identification. A clear extension portion, when wrapped around the cable to be labeled, affords protection for the written portion of the label. As at A, a label of this type can include one piece of fire-proof vinyl plastic material 3, having a backing material 5. The latter can be peeled off for application of the label to the cable, exposing an adhesive on the back of vinyl material 3. The label is divided into two halves as shown by brackets 7 and 9, one for each end of the cable to be identified.

Write On Label

Labels for cable identification comprise a fire-resistant clear vinyl material which has an area in which lettering or writing can be provided for cable identification. A clear extension portion, when wrapped around the cable to be labeled, affords protection for the written portion of the label. As at A, a label of this type can include one piece of fire-proof vinyl plastic material 3, having a backing material 5. The latter can be peeled off for application of the label to the cable, exposing an adhesive on the back of vinyl material 3. The label is divided into two halves as shown by brackets 7 and 9, one for each end of the cable to be identified. The upper portion of the labels, designated 11, constitutes the write-on portion and is provided with a suitable surface on which preprinted lettering and designations can be placed and also upon which further indicia can be typed or hand lettered. Bottom portion 13 of the label is clear. After a label is lettered and divided in half, the backing material can be peeled from it and one half 7 applied to one end of the cable as at B. The other half of the label is applied at the right-hand end of the cable as in B. With the clear portion of the plastic wrapped around the cable and over area 11 containing the lettering, the lettering is protected against smudging or other obliteration during subsequent use and handling of the cable.
