FAQ

What are Metal Asset Tags?

Metal asset tags are identification tags typically made from aluminum or stainless steel that display information for easy identification of the object they are attached to. Metal asset labels typically show serial number information, barcodes and text-based information that is either printed, embossed or chemically etched onto the surface of the tag. Metal tags are often used on equipment or assets that are used in caustic environments, have significant outdoor exposure or are attached to assets susceptible to abrasion.

What are Photo Anodized Aluminum Labels?

Metalcraft's Metal Barcode Tags & Foil Asset Tags, along with many of our other durable metal label products are photo anodized. The durability comes from its image – which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminum, providing corrosion, sunlight, abrasion, temperature and chemical resistance. The unique photographic imaging process creates high resolution graphics and clear variable information – including machine-readable barcodes and serialized data. For applications where permanence, resolution, variable data or a combination of those characteristics is required, photo anodized aluminum labels are a perfect fit.

What Advantages Does Metal Tags Have Over Polyester Tags?

Metal tags primarily perform better than plastic or polyester tags in applications where harsh chemicals,high UV / outdoor weather exposure, high temperatures or where abrasion and scratch resistance are important. With photo anodized metal asset tags, the aluminum will stand up against tough conditions, and the barcode and associated serial number, text, and other vital pieces of data are photo-composed into the anodic layer of the tag making fade and wear of the black image almost impossible. Metal tags

also have the option of being mechanically fastened to an item or adhered with permanent pressure sensitive adhesive. These features provide excellent tag readability and longevity, ensuring crisp detail on the label to ensure your property can be quickly and easily identified for years.
