EXPEDITER™ Stainless Steel UID plates offer superior corrosion resistance because our Type 316 Stainless Steel outperforms standard Type 304. Text and barcode markings are as durable as the metal because we laser- fuse Ferro Corporation’s CerMark™ glass-ceramic enamel directly to the Stainless Steel.

Manufactured to last

To create our Stainless Steel UID plates we

  1. Prepare the Stainless Steel surface
  2. Spray-coat CerMark™ over the entire surface and dry it
  3. Laser trace text and barcodes to permanently fuse CerMark™ to the Stainless Steel
  4. Remove excess, un-fused CerMark™ to leave high contrast, high resolution markings

We also offer Acid-Etch and Etch-and-Fill processes for customers whose drawings specify them.
