Types & Some Characteristics Of A Barcode Label

We are more than familiar with the barcode today, it is just everywhere that you can imagine. Barcodes are of course available in a wide variety of materials, they cal also have different adhesive backing according to where they may be used.

So which are the materials that are mostly used in barcode? Essentially they can be categorised into three types, aluminium, polyester, and ceramic, the aluminium barcode label is very durable and the information on the surface that lasts for many years, even in harsh conditions, withstanding very hot and very cold temperatures and also chemical attack.

Polyester labels are resilient as well; they have the information embedded on the underside beneath the plastic and normally have an adhesive that is permanent in its characteristics.

For a barcode label that will withstand just about everything that is thrown at it, unaffected by acidic chemicals or high temperatures, we would recommend that you use ceramic. These barcode labels are made from stainless steel and coated with a ceramic material such as porcelain.

These are just three materials which can be used for a barcode label; there are many others such as paper barcodes, resin barcodes, retro-reflective barcodes and floor barcodes.
