Project Description

Made of durable anodized aluminum, idtracon’s High Temperature Metal Barcode Tags are ideal for applications with temperature requirements from 482°C-650°C.

In addition, these tags have many of the same benefits that our standard metal barcode tags-including an image that is sealed within the anodic layer of the aluminum protecting it from abrasion, solvents, and chemicals.
