tag contents

Components of an asset tag

An asset tag / label comprises the physical piece of material and the company name / logo plus asset specific information printed on the tag.
  • Piece of material (usually made of aluminium) on which asset details are printed
  • Owner's company or organization name
  • Company logo
  • An asset identification number which is human readable
  • Barcode representation of the asset identification number


Barcode and Asset ID generation

Each asset requires a unique identification number which distinguishes it from all other assets. This number should be printed in the form of barcode or qr code which can be read using a scanner.
  • The ID should capture the asset type or category
  • If you have many assets of the same type, part of the ID should be a serially incremented number to distinguish the assets.
  • The ID should not be too long to fit on the tag
  • Both the asset ID and its Barcode should be printed on the tag
  • It's recommended to seperate the various parts of the ID using a space, dash or slash

How to tag using acetone-activated labels

The best adhesive in the market comes already attached to the back of the tag but in a dry form. It needs to be activated for it to stick to the surface being applied to using acetone.
Below are the steps to follow:
  • Clean the surface to be tagged to remove dust, grease, oils or any other form of dirt. You can use a dump cloth and a mild detergent
  • Dry the surface
  • Remove the paper lining covering the acetone-activated adhesive at the back of the tags
  • Dip a small brush in acetone and quickly apply it over the adhesive making sure that all of it gets wet
  • Place the tag on the surface to be tagged and press firmly
  • Allow to dry for a few days and the tags should be firmly fixed
  • NB: Acetone vapourises easily and is highly flamable.

Why consider QR code tags

  • A code can carry much more information than a barcode. A whole pagagraph can be put into a qr code for example
  • It occupies very little space campared to the same information being printed on a barcode
  • Qr code can be read from any angle while barcode has to be read horizontally only
  • It better error margin thus easier to read even on dirty surfaces.
