Laser Etched Destructible Labels
Laser-etched Destructible Labels
- Meets Department of Defense IUID label requirements
- Alphanumeric serialization with or without barcodes
- Extremely durable
- Super sharp barcodes, characters, lines
- Meets EPA/California small engine, and AIAG automotive industry, labeling requirements
- MIL STD-130 Compliant
Frick laser-etched destructible labels offer highly precise printing on a super tough acrylic material. When your label's text, barcode, logo and symbols need to be especially sharp even a decade from now, this is the label to use.
Laser etched, there are no inks to fade, nothing to run or blur. When coated with an aggressive, pressure-sensitive adhesive, the label offers excellent destructibility so it can't be removed from one asset and attached to another. It resists the effects of chemicals, abrasion and high temperatures.
Robust Like a Metal Plate
This acrylic film is so tough, it is not recommended for use with conventional printing methods. We have to use a 10 kw laser to etch information onto it. Once etched, however, the information cannot be removed short of destroying the label.
Meets UID Requirements (MIL STD-130)
IUID is a system for distinguishing one object from another, thereby enabling the Department of Defense (DoD) to track even identical objects separately. IUID requires that qualifying items have a data matrix inscribed either on the item or on a permanent machine-readable label affixed to the item. DoD procurement regulations require any unit over $ 5,000 to have an UII (unique item identification). Items less than $ 5,000 require an UII if serially managed, mission critical, or controlled inventory.
This label (OS-0014) is approved by the DoD for use as a permanent machine-readable label.
