CHAPTER 1:  What is Shock Indicator?


Shock Indicator Price, Technology【Don't Miss Out Secret of Industry】2021 Updated

Activation View of Shock Indicator 50G


As the name implies, the shock indicator is a product that can indicate the shock force through the display window. Shock force is known as impact force or acceleration(G).

The shock indicator can record the vibration intensity during transportation or goods exposed to inappropriate environmental conditions, which is liable to the relevant responsible person. Mostly, indicators are used in the transportation or storage of goods. With different degrees of impact resistance for each package, you should select different models for different goods. (Please refer to #How to Choose a Shock Indicator?)

There are 5 common product models: 100G, 75G, 50G, 37G, 25G, in order from least sensitive to most sensitive. Generally, the colors of commercially available shock indicators follow the industry’s specifications. They are all eye-catching colors to attract the attention of couriers and handlers.

1-1 What Is the “G” of Shock Indicator?

Each shock indicator has a corresponding “G”, but what it mean? You probably associate “G” with the gram of weight due to package weight. However, the “G” stands for acceleration G.

Acceleration G” is the G-force we hear when we play roller coasters in amusement parks or pilots often hear the human body under fast flight. The acceleration of an object under the action of gravity, also known as gravitational acceleration, usually uses “g” to represent.

To put it simply, shock indicator 50G means that it takes 50 times the acceleration g-force to activate the product and start the color change.

1-2  Structure of  Shock Indicator

Have you noticed informative content on the label? What are these contents for? 

.Sticker + Plastic Housing + G-Sensor

The shock indicator is a simple and inexpensive device, made of 3 parts – “sticker“, “plastic housing“, and “G-Sensor“. G-Sensor is placed in the plastic housing to protect the detection device.


The information contains the brand name, warning slogan, and serial number on the sticker.  The warning slogans include words such as “Handle With Care” and “Caution” to remind handlers to pay attention to this package. The serial number is to prevent the possibility of tamper. Handlers may replace the shock indicator with a new one if activated.

CHAPTER 2: How Do Shock Indicators Work?【Reveal Industry Secret】

The product technology of shock stickers is slightly different in each manufacturer, and it has always been the secret, however, in fact, the working principle is basically divided into physical change and structural change.


2-1  Physical Change

Imagine the water droplets on the ceiling fall after you slap the ceiling. The droplet is the red ink and the slap is the force of impact. While the viscosity of the water drop gets higher, the required impact force is greater to make it fall. This is the design principle of different “G” shock indicators.

Droplets on Ceiling


When the indicator is stable, the red ink remains in the transparent impact tube due to its viscosity and surface tension. Then an external force impacts the tube, the red ink flows out, and the coating in the transparent tube absorbs and spreads rapidly throughout the entire transparent tube. Its working principle is similar to toilet paper in absorbing liquid, commonly known as capillarity. People can see that the shock indicators are activated in red.

2-2  Structural Change

The structural change requires an elastic material to fix it. When an external force intervenes, the fixed material will loosen; and the degree of this elastic force is the design principle of different g shock indicators.

Impact Label is a brand of WAN-YO Enterprise Co., Ltd, 100% made in Taiwan. It currently has a global market share of about 35%. The most famous products are Impact Label and the world’s first Dual Impact Label, both use physical change design to detect impacts.

CHAPTER 3: How Can Shipping Impact Indicators Help?

The shipping impact indicator can indicate the “impact force” and impact monitor, but how exactly do they help?


3-1  What is the Issue?

The shipping impact indicator is your best choice for the following issues.

  • Damaged goods as arrived in customer’s hand causes bad reputation.
  • Don’t know where the goods are damaged.

The handlers are “extremely careful” when your goods are affixed with the indicator because the shock indicator can record the impact as an impact or a shock occurs.


.Promote Corporate Image:

Customers know that you treat their goods more responsibly than other suppliers when they receive the goods with indicators.


. Find Out the Damage Reason:

The indicator can clearly distinguish whether the goods encountered an abnormal impact, shock, or fall in the factory or during transportation.


. Penny and Pound Wise: 

It only takes a little cost to have better protection for your expensive goods. Once the goods are damaged, the amount of loss is terribly high.


. Strong Evidence:

The irreversible color-change mechanism can be used as strong evidence.

CHAPTER 5: How To Correctly Use Shock Indicator Labels?

The shock indicator label is a precise impact monitor device. Only the correct use of the product can accurately detect the exact G force. Don’t miss out, and check the 3 parts carefully.


5-1  Steps for Usage

  • Apply the warning label in the correct position on the package.
  • Tear off the shock indicator label and apply it to the yellow area of the warning label.
  • Stick a small warning sticker on the bill of lading as a reminder to handlers of the shock indicator label.


5-2  Applied Placement

The applied position is a crucial part of the shock indicator label, and the correctness of the applied position also affects the sensitivity of the indicator to detect impact and shock.

Recommendations for the Placement of Product Models:

5-4  Shock Indicator Label Activation, What to do?

The color-change of the shock indicator can immediately reflect the impact of the goods, but it cannot guarantee that the goods will be damaged as a result; therefore, when the indicator activation, the receiver “Do Not Return“, “Take Photos and Inspect” of the package, and “Note On The Receipt“.

Should you require to reject goods directly, we strongly recommend using the Dual Shock Indicator.
