CA-Tag™ Forge and Foundry Tag

CA-TagTM is intended to track materials that are heat treated in oxygen-free furnaces.  The high temperatures associated with annealing steel, copper, and other alloys can be damaging to many identification labels.  This tag will not burn or turn black.  CA-TagTM is specifically designed to withstand multiple heat cycles and still be readable by the average barcode scanner.   









  • For use with carbon steel, stainless steel, copper and exotic alloys.
  • Withstands long and multiple cycles at temperatures up to 1800°F (982oC).
  • Wide variety of attachment options.
  • Samples available - test CA-Tag in your furnace before ordering.
