High Temperature Aluminum Labels & Polyimide Tags
Track and Trace Label Materials for Applications with Extreme Temperature Requirements
Barcode tracking applications found in the metals processing industry can reach temperatures up to 600°C and identification of these materials can be difficult, expensive and time consuming if using the wrong label or tag material.
Polyonics’ aluminum and polyimide materials provide superior high temperature label solutions, designed to withstand extreme manufacturing conditions for steel and aluminum applications found in the metals processing industry.
Polyonics' XF-803, XF-807 are 2 mil, aluminum label materials have a high opacity, white topcoat specifically designed for thermal transfer printing and for alphanumeric identification of extremely hot materials.
The XF-803 has a silicone based adhesive and is used in the extreme applications where the temperatures can reach up to 600°C (sort term). The XF-807 is based on the XF-803 top coat chemistry and has a high temperature, aggressive acrylic adhesive (-40°C to 350°C).
- Inventory Control
- WIP Identification
- Name & rating plates
- Steam piping
- Asset Tracking
- Any place a label needs to survive 350°F(176°C) or hotter for more than 10 minutes.
High Temperature Tag-
POLYONICS XF-610 is a double coated, 5 mil high temperature polyimide tag with a high opacity, gloss white topcoat on one side and a matte finish on the backside both of which, are specifically designed for thermal transfer printing. This tag withstands high temperatures encountered in many processes and also exhibit tear resistance making this an ideal choice for steel or any other hot material requiring a hang tag (up to 600°C short term/ 350°C long term).
The XT-660 was developed as a 9 mil aluminum tag material to be hole-punched and attached by loop or hook to identify materials that are exposed to extreme temperatures. This material is lower temperature material which operates in the 100-200°C.
This tag material is finding its way into applications such as heat treating of springs, asset tracking, and identification of coils and tubing related products. It represents an ideal solution for real-time identification of a batch or an individual product prior to the heat treating process.
