The Standard for Outdoor Asset Tracking
Metalphoto asset tags are proven to remain scannable after 20+ years of usage in critical asset tracking applications such as aircraft landing gear, the International Space Station, night vision googles, naval ship placards, off-shore oil rig control panels, utility pole tags, and many others.
Metalphoto’s sunlight & weather degredation resistance comes from its inorganic (not printed) silver-halide image, which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminum layer.
Certified for 20+ Years Outdoors
Many assets reside for part or all their operating life outdoors. The sun’s ultra-violet (UV) rays degrade printed barcodes, rendering them unscannable and useless. Normal temperature fluctuations, humidity and rain can loosen adhesive attachment. To address these issues, Camcode recommends Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum.
Camcode’s durable Metalphoto® barcode label has a 20+ year outdoor life due to its inorganic, silver-halide image, which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminum.
Metalphoto asset labels have been proven scannable after decades of outdoor usage because of their resistance to sunlight, heat, abrasion, chemicals and salt spray degradation.
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.

5 Reasons You Should Use Heavy Duty Labels
“We needed the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of tags.”
“It was necessary to have an asset tag that could withstand the outdoor elements, yet was simple enough to meet basic tracking needs. We achieved both with Camcode’s asset tags.”
“Camcode manufactured the labels with the exact information we wanted.”
“We knew they were durable, would not fade, and would still be readable if paint got on them.”
