Aluminum is a modern, efficient, and useful material for metal tags. One of the most widely used materials to create metal tags, this alloy offers high strength and weatherability in a lightweight, easy-to-machine package. Anodized aluminum tags and ID plates are also requested as the hard transparent oxide layer on the surface of the tag is very scratch resistant. Additional benefits of aluminum include:
Aluminum’s natural oxide coating provides a corrosion-resistant protective barrier against elements that wear other metals. Also, the alloy does not burn and is classified as non-combustible, which makes it ideal for use in harsh environments.
When selecting a tag material, usability is of the utmost importance. Aluminum is lightweight and resistant to fading, ensuring operators will have no trouble handling and reading the tag for years to come. Applications that can benefit from aluminum tags include:
Aluminum’s combination of properties means that it can be easily shaped by a range of industrial metalworking processes, which include rolling, extrusion, forging and casting, guaranteeing virtually unlimited design potential.
