Asset identification labels are useful for so many different organisations, and here at Mercian Labels we have many people contact us asking for such labels. Asset labels have so many different uses, but they are commonly used to help organisations track their assets and deter theft of their property.Â One common area of confusion we find with asset labels is what the best material to use for asset labels.
The variety of end use applications forÂ makes the correct material selection very important, as the surfaces vary considerably, from smooth glass cabinets to painted metal computer cases. The identification labels usually contain the asset number and other variable data such as a barcode and serial number. It is important that the labels are resistant to abrasion and solvents which are used in the environment.
A key feature of asset labels is that they are difficult to remove, to deter theft.Â We consequently usually specify a top quality semi gloss white ultra destructible vinyl. Ultra destructible vinyl fragments into tiny pieces (which is called the â€œeggshell effectâ€) if anyone attempted to remove the label. This makes for a secure asset label that can be customised easily in small runs, and not only identifies the product, but deters theft as well.
Other security label materials can be used, but often do not give as permanent a mark as ultra destructible vinyls.
Such security labels are our speciality – please give us a call if you are looking for such products.
