PermaLabel® Metal Tags Provide Scuff-Proof IDENTIFICATION

PermaLabel® is the most durable on-demand barcodeable metal identification label (metal tag) in the industry. The label is produced from anodized aluminum to give it a tough, virtually mar-proof finish.

The labels are attached via adhesives, riveting, nailing, etc. PermaLabel® is specifically designed to survive in an abrasive environment. InfoSight's LabeLase® series of printers may be used to image 1D or 2D barcodes, man-readable numbering and lettering and even your company's logos onto the label in real time.

PermaLabel®VI™ offers the same resistance to abrasion in a variety of colors for easy visual identification.  PermaFlex™ allows you to permanently identify a curved asset.  

If your tracking and inventory control requires a robust method for identification, the PermaLabel® is the choice. Real time imaging, high-temperature survivability, rough handling and high-pressure hot chemical washes are just a few of the features of the PermaLabel® metal tag.
