High Temperature Barcode Tags For Metal Processing

Polyimide, Paper and Aluminum Barcode Tags

metal tubes

The Polyonics tags are designed for barcode and/or alphanumeric identification of products in extremely and/or harsh environments. The tags can withstand the high temperatures encountered in many steel mill and factory processes plus they provide high tear resistances making them ideal choices for tracking materials from manufacturing through to customer delivery.

The POLYONICS XF-610 is a double coated, 5 mil high temperature polyimide bar code tag with thermal transfer printable surfaces on both sides of the tag. It has a gloss white surface on one side and matte white on the other.  The tag withstands operational temperatures of 300-400°C and short term temperature of 600°C.

The XF-608 is a high temperature paper laminate material designed to operate as a barcode tag in 200°C environments with short term exposures to 250°C. It’s unique formulation allows high resolution thermal transfer printing with a wide variety of ribbons, provides a very high tear resistance and minimum curl at high temperatures.
