Pallet Barcode Tags


  • Photographically reproduced black copy, logos and bar codes ensure accurate and reliable reads
  • Anodizing process protects copy, logos and bar codes from chemicals, abrasion and high temperatures
  • Adhesive specially matched to surface for maximum adhesion or optional holes available for mechanical fasteners.
  • Optional intensification process increases heat resistance and improves the image resistance for other environmental conditions

Ensure that pallets heading out will come back by tracking them with our Pallet Barcode Tags. Or use them to track products on the pallets. These long-wearing nameplates feature a special adhesive designed for today's polypropylene pallets. You can also affix your nameplates, ordered with optional holes, using rivets.

Specifications Data
Material .008” matte anodized aluminum is standard. Optional thicknesses include: .012”, .032”, and .063”.
Serialization All alphanumeric bar codes are photo imaged with a human-readable equivalent. Guaranteed no skips in sequence. Code 39 with 2.7 to 9.4 characters per inch (CPI) is standard. Other bar code symbologies including Code 128, I 2 of 5, 2D DataMatrix and QR Code.
Label Copy Printed copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. Black copy is produced photographically. Colors other than black are screen printed.
Colors Choose black only or one of our standard colors (red, blue, green, dark blue, orange, purple or yellow) for block style type, stylized type, logos or other designs. Due to the contrast needed for bar code scanner, all bar codes are black. Color samples available upon request.
Standard Adhesive Pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive
