There are a number of options for producing durable rugged barcode labels on a range of materials suitable for most applications, these include:-
- Anodised aluminium labels with unique barcodes digitally printed, anodised and sealed within the surface of the aluminium, providing a hard wearing, solvent resistant surface. These rugged barcode labels can be produced on various thickness of aluminium from 0.3mm to 3mm. Anodised aluminium rugged barcode labels are successfully used in a wide range of applications including Military, Instrumentation, Medical and Asset Management.
- Laser marked or etched stainless steel in which the barcode is marked into the surface of the metal to give a very durable finish suitable for harsh environments such as Marine, Oil & Gas applications. The etched stainless steel rugged barcode labels have also been tested for use in very high temperature applications up to 800°C.
- Under-surface digitally printed rugged barcode labels on to various plastics such as polycarbonate and acrylic. These provide a durable finish, with the inks printed on the rear and viewed through the clear substrate to provide a long lasting and rugged barcode suitable for identifying aisles and racks in warehouses and Asset Management.
Rugged barcode labels can be specified with either a high quality self-adhesive tape on rear or with holes for a mechanical fixing which can even be fixed with tamper proof screws to ensure that they were extremely difficult to remove after installation.
