Labels which can be applied up to 800°C and pass through various re-heating processes. Tags which can be applied to steel at temperatures over 1100°C and re-heated up to 1250°C. These blank label or tag materials can be supplied to client specific dimensions, and then printed on site by the end-user with a thermal transfer machine. This allows total flexibility to create variable data labels or tags for steel products.
Heatproof barcode and serial number tracking label/tags will withstand temperatures up to 760°C for 24 hours, enabling the identification information they carry to survive the rigours of annealing and heat reprocessing.
Label design, print and application
Heatproof labels can include a wide range of text, 1D and 2D barcodes. The design software is easy to use and has the flexibility to include all necessary information in very small or large text layout. This allows for both long range scanning of barcodes and human reader-friendly text.
Labels can be printed using relatively low cost thermal transfer printers, a proven industrial machine for label and tag printing. There are a variety of application methods depending on temperature, number of labels and budget – we have manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic systems available and can advise you on the best approach.
