Project Description

Foil Barcode Labels are ideal for customers who require a flexible label that will conform to most surfaces, yet will withstand chemicals, abrasion, solvents, and high temperatures. Black copy, logos and barcodes are photographically reproduced for maximum clarity and detail and then sealed within the anodic layer of the aluminum – ensuring accurate and reliable reads for years to come.

  • Conforms easily to radius surfaces

  • 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

  • Adhesives specially matched to surface for maximum adhesion

  • Nearly 200 sizes means no extra tooling charge

Specifications Data

Material .003” thick matte anodized aluminum is standard. .005” thick matte anodized aluminum is optional.
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 The printed label copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. All 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 the bar code scanner, all bar codes are black. Color samples available upon request.

Destructive Test Data

A label with an intensified image was tested in a weatherometer, 20 years equivalent; reduced overall readability after these thresholds

Abrasion Test Summary

A plate with an intensified image was brushed for 7,000 cycles with stiff nylon wheel (C-17) at a 1,000 gm (16 ox.) load; reduced overall readability after these thresholds
