High Temp Metal Barcode Nameplates


  • Unique coating process that increases temperature range to 1200°F
  • Photographically reproduced black copy, logos and bar codes ensure accurate and reliable reads
  • Anodizing process protects black copy, logos and bar codes from chemicals, abrasion and high temperatures

Metalcraft’s High Temperature Metal Barcode Nameplates are ideal for temperatures from 900°F - 1200°F.

Our High Temperature Metal Barcode Labels are made of anodized aluminum, so they have many of the same benefits that our standard Metal Barcode Tags do – including an image sealed within the anodic layer of the aluminum. This protects it from abrasion, solvents and chemicals.

These unique nameplates are an economical alternative to other more expensive high temperature materials such as ceramic and stainless steel. Potential applications include work-in-process tracking or product identification. Due to the high temperatures this product is exposed to, adhesives are not recommended, rather the nameplates should be produced with holes and attached with mechanical fasteners.

Specifications Data
Material.008” thick matte anodized aluminum is standard. Optional thicknesses include: .012”, .020”, and .032”.
SerializationAll 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. OCR characters and CPIs also available.
Label CopyThe printed nameplate copy is block type only. No stylized type, logos or other designs available. All copy is photo imaged.
ColorsAvailable in black only
