Standard Asset Labels Will Fail When Exposed to Chemicals/Fuels
Refineries, water treatment facilities, food processing equipment, restaurants, hospitals are hydraulic equipment are just a few common applications where assets are exposed to chemicals. These fluids will destroy standard printed metal or plastic asset tags. Camcode recommends Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum features a sub-surface image that is certified to resist a variety of industrial fluids and chemicals.
Camcode offers several chemical resistant asset label materials.
Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum features a sub-surface image that is certified to resist a variety of industrial fluids and chemicals. See the list of fluids tested as per MIL-STD-810G here. If you have a specific application, we can facilitate testing.
For additional chemical resistance, we recommend our optional Teflon® coating. Camcode’s Teflon coated labels resist solutions used in cleaning, pickling, painting, e-coating, and powder coating, as well as caustics and strong acids.

The Hidden Cost of Inferior Labels
The cost of scan failure due to barcode degradation pales in comparison to the relatively low cost of an asset tag. When tags fade or detach, replacement can cost (both tag and installation labor) will far exceed the initial tag cost. Further, missing or un-readable tags can delay asset-critical maintenance.
Don’t be penny-wise, but dollar foolish. Install the asset tag with a proven technology and track record to last – Metalphoto asset tags are certified to remain scannable and legible during the operating lifespan of your asset.
Common Use Cases for Chemical Resistant Labels
Some applications require more than an ordinary bar code label, and different levels of durability. Industries such as food processing, manufacturing, oil & gas, energy, and healthcare require durable bar code labels and asset tags that can withstand exposure to harsh chemicals and solvents. Common use cases for chemical resistant labels include:
Track & Manage Equipment Maintenance & Inspections
Monitor Equipment Usage & Access
Cut Costs By Making Data-Driven Decisions
