Barcode label materials

We are all familiar with barcodes. These are the small sequence of lines which feature on just about every product we buy today. Barcodes are used for pricing, inventory tracking and product allocation reasons and are a firm part of our everyday lives. However they don’t have to be printed onto a product packaging at the time of manufacture, they can also be printed onto paper and these paper labels stuck onto products at any point in the product’s lifecycle.

Barcode labels can be made out of different materials including:

Aluminium barcode labels

Aluminium barcode labels are the ideal way to record data in environments where standard labels might fade or wear. Aluminium labels are also perfect to use outdoors and are not affected by extremes of heat or cold, making them the perfect type of labels to use in industry.

Ceramic barcode labels

Ceramic barcode labels can be used when the item to which the label is affixed is subjected to high temperatures. The stainless steel base makes this type of label extremely strong and durable.

Polyester barcode labels

These are a hardwearing type of barcode label which have an overlamination of plastic so the barcode image cannot be distorted or become faded. Combined with a strong adhesive backing these barcode labels are useful tool in a variety of applications.
