The 500 series is 2D’s highly chemically-resistant, high temperature-proof, halogen-free tagging solution designed for our partners in the heavy industry
As heavy industry has been a key sector of interest for 2d ever since our journey began, we have researched and developed a number of high strength tagging solutions that have stood the test of time over the years.
Constituting a particular growth area, industrial tags have furthermore brought into focus the need for our company to build up a dedicated range of products. Our answer, by now validated by a long and successful run, was the 500 series of highly chemically-resistant, high temperature-proof, halogen-free tags.
The 500 series tags employ paper, polyimide and aluminum, granting us the opportunity to provide our partners with cost-optimized products that may be fully customized to precisely match their temperature and tear-resistance thresholds.
2D’s high tear resistance paper laminates withstand 200ºC temperatures – up to 250ºC for short intervals – while experiencing minimal curling and allow for thermal transfer printing in high resolution.
Meanwhile, our double coated polyimide bar code tags successfully tackle 400ºC environments – up to 600ºC for short intervals – and allow for thermal transfer printing on either side.
Similarly, our aluminum single coated tags permit thermal transfer printing as well as ad hoc markings and handle temperatures of up to 450ºC – 500ºC for short intervals.
Our high temperature tags, including our high temperature metal tags, are fully weatherized, having demonstrated exceptional outdoor hardiness during long exposures to UV light, frost, humidity in general and water submersion (including saltwater) in particular.
These tags have been designed to allow items such as incandescent cast metal to be identified while it is still being processed after exiting the furnace, as well as while it is being annealed, treated with pickle liquor and during the application of chemical coatings.
We further note that our tags comply with RoHS2, now fully implemented since July 22, 2019, and with ECHA’s REACH regulations for SVHC.
