Drake offers seal-able calibration tags, and ‘Write-On’ labels for recording operational data about mechanical and electronic equipment.   ‘Write-On’ labels offer the convenience of writing down important infomation like dates or other information and the security of sealing the information with a clear “flap” of polyester.

Calibration tags are typically manufactured from polyester/Mylar with permanent, pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive.

Drake calibration tags and labels are used in a variety of environments including aerospace, avionics, military, industrial/manufacturing, scientific/oceanic, and oil/gas.

We offer standard and rush production times on prototypes as well as low- and mid-volume orders.  We look forward to finding out more about your calibration label needs.  Call us at 800.531.5073 or email us at quotes@drake.com.
