Asset Tags with New Sandshield Bar Code Labels Offer Extreme Sand Abrasion Resistance

Share Article

Withstanding abrasion from outdoor blowing sand or indoor media blast chambers is now possible with asset tags featuring strong and clear plastic coating materials.

The combination of our SandShield and Metalphoto technologies offers our customers a one-of-a-kind labeling solution that can withstand extreme abrasion, UV exposure, common chemicals and temperatures.

With the new SandShield Label introduced this month, the Camcode Division of Horizons Incorporated now offers the solution to protect critical barcode labels from extreme sand and gravel abrasion.

The combination of SandShield's .008" thick abrasion-repellent plastic coating and Camcode's Metalphoto® anodized aluminum bar code label makes these labels ideal for even the toughest blowing-sand environments, both outdoors and in media blast chambers using silica, glass beads or even steel pellets.

"The typical barcode label doesn't stand a chance in media blast chambers commonly used for cleaning parts. Anodized aluminum, polyester, even steel labels are quickly abraded and rendered illegible," said Randy Uveges, Camcode's UID Product Manager. "The combination of our SandShield and Metalphoto technologies offers our customers a one-of-a-kind labeling solution that can withstand extreme abrasion, UV exposure, common chemicals and temperatures."

The SandShield Label is suitable for adhesion to such materials as glass, acrylic, stainless steel, and even tough CARC paint in applications like vehicles, weapons, and support equipment. Because it is designed as a plastic lens applied over the barcode label, there's no need for an added step in application or drying time, as with sprays or liquid coatings. SandShield Labels are designed to be installed using mechanical attachment or pressure-sensitive adhesive.

Founded in 1979, Camcode is a recognized worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of durable pre-print bar code labels for asset tracking and unique identification (UID) applications. Camcode's asset tags improve the efficiency of asset tracking systems by eliminating errors caused during manual data collection and increasing data acquisition speed. Camcode's Metalphoto® anodized aluminum bar code labels, premium plastic label constructions, and proprietary coating technologies satisfy the most demanding applications.  For more information visit http://www.camcod.com/asset/fixed.asp or call 800-627-3917.
