Metal Labels

Supporting identification in the steel industry

Producers and processors of metal products face many different challenges in identifying their goods. Early product identification can significantly reduce waste, and streamline your process.

Metal Labels

Products and Services

High-performance tags and labels designed to help our clients identify and track metals during production, processing, and distribution.

Our rich history dates back over 80 years, when we first started working with mills in the heart of the UK’s steel city – Sheffield. You can overprint our labels and tags on-demand with our print solutions. Your labels can include barcodes, batch information, logos, and variable data. Our labels will adhere to scaley, oily, or finished products directly in-house.

Tear Resistant Tags

Robust and durable tags are of the utmost importance when tracking metals. Our range of tear and rip-proof tags ensures your products can withstand the harshest conditions in the production and assembly lifecycle.

Whether you are a steel stockholder or steel manufacturer, Dura-ID Solutions has a range of high-performance tear resistant and rip proof tags that will ensure your steel gets from A to B, fully identified.

Just some of the tear resistant tags Dura-ID offer:

Industrial Self-Adhesives

Businesses face several common challenges when using industrial self-adhesives, such as:

  • Labels falling off
  • Attaching to uneven or rough surfaces
  • Identifying oily or scaley product
  • Label residue left on finished products

At Dura-ID Solutions, we leverage our years of practical experience and technical knowledge to help our clients overcome these obstacles. That’s why our products continue to be industry favourites. We offer a wide range of industrial self-adhesives:

High Temperature Labels

Identifying products at the earliest possible stage is crucial in the steel industry for stock or quality control. However, extremely high operating temperatures when labelling everything from slabs and ingots to flat sheet and wire rod coils make the process complex.

Here at Dura-ID Solutions, we have a range of tried and tested high-temperature tags and self-adhesive labels to help you overcome these challenges. Our range of high-temperature labels suit different temperature applications which our team of experts can advise on:

Print Your Own Labels

Print on demand and without delay with our range of plain or part-printed labels. With black-and-white or colour printing options, we have the ideal solution to help your business keep up with demand.

Zebra ZT510 for black and white printing including cast numbers, QR codes and further product information.

OKI C650 for full colour printing to include branding, colour coding, images and all of your other product information.

Dura-ID Solutions also supply the software to allow you to print your labels from a database of products. Our in-house technical team are always on hand to assist with support.

Label Fixings

Once your tagging solution has been designed and manufactured, you’ll need a reliable and sturdy fixing to ensure it remains in place. To help achieve this, we supply a range of fixings, including wires, clips, studs, pipe clips, and tube clips. Our expert team will advise on the best solution to attach to your product.

All of these fixings are straightforward to attach (even with gloves) and will ensure that your products remain traceable and identifiable throughout the entire product lifecycle.

Ensure your labels stay tracked through the product lifestyle with our stud welding machines. Lightweight, portable, and easily assembled, this is an ideal solution for extra longevity.
