Hortycode Label Types
Hortycodes offers 3 label types using 2 different materials:
Our anodized aluminum labels are primarily for institutions such as botanical gardens and arboretums.
Anodized Aluminum is an excellent material as a product identification substrate and is used in many nameplate, sign, control panel, overlays and bezel applications. It will maintain a quality appearance under a broad variety of challenging environments.
Anodizing is the controlled oxidation of aluminum using an electro-chemical process creating a porous surface, called the anodic layer. To add color in this layer, the material is coated with a dye over the entire sheet or selectively dyed using a stencil, digital imaging or screen printing process. The material is sealed and the dye becomes an integrated part of the aluminum. The final surface is chemical and abrasion resistant and that will last many years in harsh environments.

Ideally suited for use anytime printed materials will be subject to frequent handling or extreme environmental conditions, REVLAR laser paper is waterproof, tear-resistant and durable, as well as impervious to grease and chemicals, and designed to withstand high and low temperature fluctuations.
In fact, REVLAR™ is so durable that it recently passed U.S. Army tests in Iraq for use in their field manuals—including being run over by a tank.
