Metalcraft’s Premium StyleMark Labels use a flexible polycarbonate material with a textured, non-reflective finish.


StyleMark labels are tough and versatile labels made from a strong plastic material that can withstand tough conditions. These plastic barcode labels are commonly used in applications requiring long-term durability, such as industrial equipment, machinery, control panels, and outdoor signage.


Stylemark labels offer excellent resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and moderate temperatures, ensuring that vital information remains legible and intact even in challenging conditions.


These plastic barcode labels can be customized using various printing techniques such as screen printing, digital printing, and thermal transfer printing. This allows for the inclusion of text, images, barcodes, and other details. Style Mark Labels are digitally printed plastic barcode labels that offer durability, clarity, and customization options. They are a reliable choice for labeling needs in various industries.


Premium Style Mark Labels look great and work even better. The subsurface printing process combined with the polycarbonate material used to produce these plastic barcode tags makes them labels extremely resistant to abrasion. Printing under the surface helps keep the label safe from harmful chemicals. The adhesive is made to stick well to plastic and can handle temperatures up to 250°F for a short time.


Premium Style Mark Labels are a great option for Original Equipment Manufacturers. They are durable and attractive. These labels can withstand tough environments. They proudly display the company logo. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) choose polycarbonate labels for several reasons:


  1. Durability: Polycarbonate labels are extremely durable and resistant to harsh environmental conditions, including abrasion, chemicals, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures. This durability ensures that labels remain legible and intact throughout the product's lifecycle, even in demanding applications.


  2. Longevity: Polycarbonate labels are plastic barcode tags that offer long-term performance, making them ideal for applications requiring extended durability and reliability. OEMs can trust that polycarbonate labels will maintain their quality and appearance over time, reducing the need for frequent label replacement or maintenance.


  3. Customization: Polycarbonate labels can be easily customized with various printing techniques, including screen printing, digital printing, and thermal transfer printing. OEMs can incorporate branding elements, product information, serial numbers, barcodes, and other data onto polycarbonate labels to meet specific requirements.


  4. Versatility: Polycarbonate labels are suitable for a wide range of applications and environments, including industrial equipment, machinery, control panels, appliances, electronics, automotive components, and outdoor signage. Their usefulness makes them a versatile labeling solution for diverse OEM products.


  5. Regulatory Compliance: Many industries have strict regulations and standards governing labeling requirements for OEM products. Polycarbonate labels are plastic barcode tags that can be engineered to meet these regulatory requirements, ensuring compliance with safety, identification, and traceability standards.


  6. Aesthetic Appeal: Polycarbonate labels offer excellent optical clarity and can be produced with high-resolution graphics and vibrant colors. This allows OEMs to create labels that enhance the overall appearance of their products, contributing to brand identity and customer perception.


Original equipment manufacturers often choose polycarbonate labels because they are durable, long-lasting, versatile, compliant with regulations, visually appealing and can often be customized. This makes them a great choice for many different applications and industries.
