New Guardian Extreme write-on tags from Master Lock have been designed to provide years of dependable use, even under the most difficult conditions.
After locking-out a power source, the operator notes the reason for the deactivation on the tag using a permanent marker. After use, the message can be easily erased using a special cleaning wipe.
Graphics on the Guardian Extreme tags are fused into the industrial grade polypropelene tag itself, making the tags invulnerable to high humidity, dirt, harsh chemicals, oil and grease or washdown environments. Guardian Extreme tags can withstand a temperature range of -45 to 104 degrees C and have endured over 4000 hours of QUV accellerated weather testing with no fading or degradation of its photo-quality finish. The tags can withstand a pull force of 41kg - almost double that of normal plastic or paper tags.
