Project Description

Idtracon’s Paint-Resist Metal Barcode Nameplates feature a special fluoropolymer laminate that resists 10-12 paint applications, grease, even graffiti, and can withstand temperatures up to 175°C.

After painting simply pick off the dried paint and leave a clean, easy-to-scan metal barcode nameplate – a great product for work-inprocess.

  • Color logos or designs available in standard colors – black, red, yellow, green or blue

  • Fluoropolymer laminate designed to resist up to 12 paintings and withstand continuous temperatures up to 175°C

  • Anodizing process and fluoropolymer laminate protects black copy, logos, and bar codes from chemicals, abrasion and high temperatures

  • Adhesives specially matched to surface for maximum adhesion or optional holes available for mechanical fasteners

Specifications Data

Material .008” thick matte anodized aluminum is standard. Optional thicknesses include: .012”, .020”, .032”, and .063”.
Bar Code & 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 Printed copy may include block type, stylized type, logos or other designs. 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, purple, orange, dark blue 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.
Standard Adhesive Pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive; excellent bond to unpainted metal surfaces such as aluminum and stainless steel as well as glass surfaces. Will withstand temperatures from -40°C to 204°C (intermittent). Shelf life of 24 months when stored at 22°C and 50% relative humidity.
Sizes Various sizes available
Holes 51mm x 16mm; 51mm x 25mm; 63mm x19mm
Packaging Shipped on convenient rollsShipped in “work-out-of” cartons for convenient application. Each carton consists of one or more plastic trays containing 250 sequentially packed nameplates (can vary with metal thickness). Both cartons and trays are clearly marked to indicate serial numbers of contents. Pressure-sensitive adhesive orders are shipped with a roller, cleaner, and application instructions. with scrap matrix removed for ease of removal. Cartons are clearly marked to indicate serial numbers of labels.
Shipment 7-8 business days

Chemical Test Data 

This rating measures effect on labels after being exposed to chemicals listed below for a 2 hour soak and a 48-hour soak.

Characteristics Test conditions Effect
Water/Humidity
Salt spray 5% at 95°F, 700 hours no effect
Ammonium hydroxide 2 hours at 1% and 5% slight dulling of image, affects overall readability
Ethyl alcohol no effect
ethyl acetate 24 hours no effect
Ferric chloride 72 hours no effect
Heptane 72 hours no effect
Hydrocarbon fluid no effect
JP-4 fuel no effect
Kerosene no effect
Methyl ethyl ketone no effect
Nitric acid 1%, 40 hours no effect
Phosphoric acid 1%, 40 hours no effect
Skydrol no effect
Sodium hydroxide affects overall readability
Turbine and jet fuel (MIL-L 5161C) (MIL-L 5161C) no effect

Temperature Test Data 

Tamper-Evident Labels are able to withstand intermittent heat exposure to 93°C and still leave the “VOID” pattern upon removal after label is allowed to cool to room temperature.

(Image intensified) 265 hours at 260°C, 90 hours at 315°C, 60 hours at 370°C Reduced overall readability after these thresholds
UV Exposure (image intensified) Weatherometer, 20 years equivalent Reduced overall readability after these thresholds

Destructive Test Data

Image intensified Plates brushed for 7000 cycles with stiff nylon wheel (C-17) at a 1000 gm (16 ox.) load Reduced overall readability after these thresholds

Abrasion Test Data 

Image intensified Plates 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
