What surfaces do asset tags adhere to?
Our metallic and white asset tags will stick to a variety of plastics (ABS, PP, PET, HIPS), metals (unpainted, painted, powder coated), glass and other hard, smooth surfaces. Avery asset tags are not recommended for highly textured materials, fabrics or small curved objects, such as wire.
Do I have to pretreat the surface before applying the asset tags?
For best results, the surface should be clean and free of dust or grease before applying your asset tags. Maximum adhesion is achieved approximately 24 hours after application. For the first few hours, you may be able to remove and reposition your asset tags before the adhesive becomes permanent.
Can the asset tags be used outdoors?
PermaTrack™ asset tags are recommended for indoor use.
How durable are PermaTrack® asset tags?
All PermaTrack asset tags are made of our tear-resistant polyester film that is stronger and tougher than our standard paper labels. Our metallic asset tags are abrasion resistant and more durable than our white asset tags.
What chemicals can your asset tags withstand?
Our white asset tags are resistant to water and most common cleaning solutions such as 409® and Windex®. Our metallic asset tags are waterproof, and hold up to chemicals such as isopropyl alcohol and WD-40®, as well as 409® and Windex®. If you anticipate your asset coming into contact with harsher chemicals like acetone or heptane, we recommend Avery UltraDuty® GHS Chemical Labels.
What temperatures can the asset tags withstand?
Our metallic asset tags have a minimum application temperature of 20°F, and a usage temperature range of -20°F to 300°F. Our white asset tags have a minimum application temperature of 35°F and a usage range of -45°F to 190°F.
Create custom asset tags for tracking your company’s physical assets such as valuable electronics, critical equipment and tools, inventory or other items. Asset-tracking labels help you make sure your employees have the equipment they need to do their jobs and helps protect valuables.
Asset tags with barcodes allow you to digitally track assets throughout their lifetime, keeping information in a centralized database. For example, recording the location and status of items. Do you have machinery that is shut down for maintenance? Do you have equipment being used off-site? Asset tracking helps you monitor that information.
Asset tracking also helps reduce losses from misplaced and stolen items. Custom asset tags designed to discourage theft make it difficult to remove and replace (or switch) asset tags on valuables such as computer equipment, laptops, smartphones and tablets.
