Foil Label Test Results:
Photo anodized aluminum bar codes are known for maintaining their readability in a wide range of environments and uses. They perform better than other types of labels in demanding environments with the exception of those environments that chemically attack aluminum, such as highly caustic or highly acidic applications. Recommended performance is in a pH range of 5.5 to 8.5.
The Foil InfoDot is produced using an image intensification process on the photo anodized aluminum which results in higher product performance in heat ant ultraviolet conditions.
The chart below will help determine if anodized aluminum is right for your application. Always test a sample in your exact environment to ensure performance. Tests were conducted in laboratory environments and may or may not simulate your conditions.
