Aluminium Asset Tags

Anodised Aluminium Acetone activated Asset Tags

Different sizes and colors available. Printing on tags is anodized into the aluminium, physically making it part of the metal. Then stuck onto a product using acetone to activate it's extremely strong adhesive. These tags are made of a strong aluminium alloy.

How are aluminium tags printed?
The aluminium barcode tags are forged from aluminum and are extremely good at resisting solvents, salt, air, sun, and extreme temperatures. These tags are constructed of 0.5mm anodized aluminum and are stuck with high-performance acetone activated or 3M 350 Series peel and stick, extreme High-Performance adhesive and/or holes for mechanical attachment. The powerful adhesive permanently sticks the tag to high surface energy metals, plastics and textured or contoured surfaces. The tags are available in different sizes and colors.

The following diagram shows the Anodising Process of Aluminium Asset Tags :

What is not commonly known is that rubies and sapphires are both termed corundum because they are principally made from aluminium oxide.

According to Mohs scratch hardness scale, Diamond is the only mineral harder than corundum.

AssetZure, Barcode101, MerQ Manufacturing: From 1998 to 2020

In the spring of 1998 brothers Koos and Mynhardt du Preez, along with their mother Aletta, started the partnership called Trio Software, developing software for the Agricultural market.

Their journey progressed and they later registered a company called Zure Technologies (Pty) Ltd in 2011. They focused on livestock identification and management using RFID & barcode technologies. More and more companies approached them from other industries and they saw a real need for user-friendly barcode asset & inventory management solutions for medium and large enterprises.

They noticed the tags and labels for customers that already existed in the industry were not up to standard so decided to do something about it! In 2016 they registered the company, that specializes in barcode labels and asset tags using laser engraving technology, called MerQ Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd.

From August 2017 MerQ Manufacturing and Zure Technologies are both held safe under the umbrella of a holding company.

Today Zure Technologies is a leader in cloud-based asset management and inventory management solutions: including Google Play apps and Apple App store apps that synchronize data to the cloud making remote scanning a pleasure.
