What Processes are Available for Vale Tags?
One of the most popular choices for valve tags is the metal embossing process. A die set punches the metal creating a raised design. This proves is incredibly durable, and is perfect for industrial environments. Steam trap labels are often embossed to make them easier to read in any condition.
Some organizations choose to mark their own blank tags on-site with an embossing machine or label printer.
Photo anodization is a unique process that embeds information in between layers of aluminum material. This provides the appearance of printed text, but with outstanding durability. These tags are resistant to scratches, chemicals, weather, and more and are rated to last for 20+ years outdoors. These metal labels are much more durable than plastic valve tags, or temporary paper tags.

Add color to aluminum valve tags with anodized aluminum. Their vibrant designs make identifying your pipes in low lighting or from a distance easier. Plus, they are frequently used for color-coding pipes.
In addition to choosing the best process and material for your application, deciding on how you will attach your valve identification tags is equally important.
For fire extinguishers and other safety labels requiring valves, a beaded chain looped through the tag is a popular choice. Tag fasteners and other hardware are great options for equipment repair tags or machinery near valves.
Adhesive backing or banding tape may be used when attaching custom pipe markers to avoid damaging the pipe.
Note that the marking process selected may impact the attachment method options. For example, stamped brass valve tags cannot utilize an adhesive backing due to the nature of the process.
