Labels for Metal & Engineering

Specialised, high performance tags and labels to identify and track metals during production, processing and distribution.

Perfect for heavy engineering, industrial and high temperature environments

Dura-ID Solutions provide a range of durable tags and labels to suit harsh environments.

Whether being subjected to high temperature or low temperature, indoor or outdoor storage, rough handling or overseas export environments – then Dura-ID Solutions will help supply the most suitable labels/tags and attachments to clearly identify your products.

Producers and processors of Steel and Metal face many different challenges in identifying their products. Quite often the ability to identify a product at its earliest stage in a process can have a very positive impact on reducing waste, improving complications with quality and product mix, either on-site or with your end user.

At Dura-ID Solutions we provide a range of products to a global market based on our innovative approach to problem solving. Our history dates back over 80 years when we started working with the steel mills within the heart of the UK’s steel city – Sheffield. Labels and tags for rough-cut or oily product as well as finished products can be overprinted with barcodes, batch information, logos and variable data; in-house at your site.

If you currently have headaches with traceability of product or scrappage of goods due to lack of identification, then please contact us here.

Tear Resistant & Rip-Proof Tags

These tags will ensure your products remain identified throughout the toughest and harshest processes.

Self-Adhesive Labels

Dura-ID Solutions have many years of experience in the production of self-adhesive labels that solve common challenges such as:

– labels falling off
– attaching to porous or uneven surfaces 
– identifying product that could be oily or dirty
– label residue left on finished product surface

Mattrans Extreme is a product we have developed specifically to work where other labels fail. It’s matt face makes it easy to overprint with thermal transfer printers; its durability makes it suitable for outdoor exposure and we coat the reverse with an extremely aggressive adhesive.

We also have a range of other products to suit various applications that can be printed through thermal transfer printers or desktop laser printers

Let us know the challenges you are facing so we can recommend a best fit solution.
