If a barcode label or an asset tag or label becomes damaged through exposure to adverse conditions, they become un-readable by the scanner and no longer serve the purpose for which they were intended. In such cases the label would have to be replaced, wasting company employees’ valuable time and costing the company money.
We can supply labels and tags which are designed to withstand the rigours of exposure to adverse conditions, but a cheaper and cost effective way could be to over-laminate the label before it is despatched. Over laminating a label can help to protect it from exposure to the elements, chemicals and extreme heat and cold temperatures. The process is straightforward and simply involves coating the label with a clear film of polyester material.
The over-lamination process with protect the barcode label or asset tag from the weather, ultra violet rays, dirt and grease, marks and fingerprints can be easily wiped off the label, and also protect it from many chemicals. When protected the label will always remain legible, intact, and readable by the scanner, the information on the label is protected and will not be able to be scratched off.
