AlumaMark is a material for producing asset tags. This aluminium material is specifically suited for several applications in the engraving industry. And one of its applications is making asset tags. AlumaMark asset tags are incomparable with tags made from other materials. Oh, yes. It is a factual truth. But most people, including some engravers, do not know it.
You will, therefore, get to know the benefits of making asset tags from AlumaMark aluminium in this post. Before we go to the benefits, let us first understand the difference between AlumaMark aluminium and other similar materials.
We make asset labels from either metal or plastic, with plastic labels being the more affordable choice. It’s easy to identify plastic from metal. But it’s difficult for an ordinary person to tell the difference between AlumaMark aluminium from other types of engravable aluminium. Even some engravers fail to differentiate it from others. AlumaMark is anodized aluminium consisting of two layers: the aluminium core and the anodized layer. The anodized coating on top is a thin, hard, strong layer (approx. 6-22 microns). This layer protects the aluminium core from any chemical and physical influence. It is usually white. But through embedding colour pigments onto its surface, it becomes coloured to give the final finish.
Why AlumaMark Asset Tags are the Best?
AlumaMark asset tags are incomparable to tags made from other materials because of the following benefits to both the client and the engraver.
AlumaMark is a material prepared purposely to produce high-quality engraving results using a CO2 laser system. AlumaMark asset tags look so perfect with professional engraving. You get tags with high-resolution results and quality graphics that are commensurate with the brand of your organization or business.
Ability to Create Logos
You can benefit from having your logo or any other graphics on the AlumaMark asset tags. It is not the case with other uncoated metals. Having a company logo on your asset tags is a perfect way of visually identifying your assets and personalizing them. Additionally, it helps promote your brand because the more people see your branded tags, the more your brand name remains firmly in their minds.
It is Real Metal
AlumaMark is real metal with a high perceived value. Besides, metal is long-lasting. When you fix Alumamark asset tags on metallic assets, they bond so well and become too hard to remove.
Ability to Create Barcodes or QR Codes
On AlumaMark asset tags, you can create 1D barcodes and 2D barcodes (known as QR Codes). These modern technologies make it possible to track assets by scanning the barcode labels attached to them. Using barcode asset tags is an efficient and contemporary way of managing assets in organizations, companies, industries and government institutions. Additionally, QR codes are also an effective marketing strategy. For more information on this, you can read about our post on QR code marketing.
Strong and Durable
AlumaMark asset tags are strong, although they are lightweight. The protective coating offers impact resistance, hence increased durability. However, AlumaMark is recommendable for indoor applications. If you want tags for outdoor applications, then Durablack aluminium should be your choice.
Wide Selection of Colours
AlumaMark comes in different colour backgrounds. It means that you have a wide colour selection that matches your assets. The colours include silver, gold, yellow, green, orange, red, bronze and brass. These colours also play a crucial role in identifying your assets quickly from others.
Comes Ready to Engrave
The material comes ready for marking. As an engraver, you don’t need to apply a special spray or chemical before engraving, the way it is when engraving bare metal. You only place the material in your laser machine and etch it straight away to create the tags. It saves time and increases profitability as you can produce so many property tags in a short time.
Easy to Fix Firmly on the Assets
AlumaMark asset tags are light and thin, with a thickness of 0.020 inches. When you fix them on your assets, they stick hard, making it difficult to fall off or remove them. It is perfect for people who consider asset tagging inappropriate for fear of easy removal.
Change Your Mind!
As I conclude, I would like to remind you that AlumaMark produces high-quality engraving results. You can put company logos and barcodes to customize your tags and simplify the asset management process. Next time you want to mark your assets, think using AlumaMark asset tags in any colour of your preference.
