Laser etched labels and tags

Laser etched barcodes and custom marking is now available on both asset labels and stainless steel asset tags.

The laser beam produces a permanent marking into the surface of some label materials as well as metals such as stainless steel and as the marking is computer controlled precision and consistency of the mark or barcode is thereby guaranteed.

Marking into a black label material produces a white text, barcode and numbering while the laser beam will produce a dark marking on stainless steel.

The asset labels have a very strong 3M adhesive and cannot be removed in one piece without breaking up into small fragments and they are therefore an excellent deterrent against theft.

Such laser marks are totally different to ordinary printed barcodes and text because they are physically etched into the surface of the material. You can actually feel the etching with your fingernail. This gives the benefit a very durable surface and will withstand great deal of chemical, heat and abrasion resistance.
