As economic conditions have continued to improve over the past few years, the construction industry is becoming more competitive. This means that more pressure is placed on manufacturers of extrusions to deliver not only robust materials, but durable coding as well. Robust coding is essential on building extrusions, many of which are outdoors and exposed to the elements for weeks, months, or even longer. Without quality codes and materials, the construction industry can experience a significant amount of waste.
At REA JET, we provide industrial coding solutions to many industries, including steel/metal, wood, building materials, plastics, and cable/wire. We understand the importance of robust coding in the construction industry, and provide solutions such as the following.
Inks that are “light fast” or resistant to fading caused by the sun is essential, particularly for extrusions that may be exposed for an indeterminate length of time. We provide inks for our coding machines that will not fade, so you can feel confident in marking extrusions for delivery to the construction and other industries.
For materials that are stacked on top of each other, fast drying inks are essential. With traditional inks, codes are more likely to smear, rub off, or even transfer from one stacked item to another. With fast drying inks, coding becomes permanent instantly – so no worries about stacking.
We provide laser marking systems, another solution for industries producing products that are often tough to code including PVC pipe, plastic, rubber, and other challenging substrates. Laser marking provides permanent color change to the products in legible, durable coding that lasts, with no worries of smudging or fading. In addition, laser marking means no consumables, and very little maintenance.
For the construction industry, quality coding and marking of extrusions is a must. At REA JET, we deliver solutions that give you peace of mind and that are cost-effective over the long term.
