Brady high-performance labelling materials meet strict safety regulations
In the Mass Transit industry any identifying label, marker or tag has to withstand aggressive solvents such as diesel without suffering losses in visibility or readability. Wide ranges of operating temperatures add to the demand for highly resistant identification products on wires and components in the Mass Transit Industry.
Brady develops tailored high-performance solutions, fully answering the requirements in Mass Transit. During development, Brady products are thoroughly tested, until they meet all requirements and specifications of the most advanced mass transit vehicle manufacturers. Brady takes special pride in making sure identifying labels and safety signs will always play their maximum role in safety precautions, resisting solvents and withstanding wide ranges of temperatures.
The Brady team is dedicated to the needs of the Mass Transit Industry and constantly monitors the latest developments, committed as we are to deliver complete solutions. These include easy to use portable label printers and high volume benchtop printers, backed up by the user-friendly Brady Software Suite, to produce incomparable and durable results, defying threatening solvents and temperatures.
Immovable in extreme heat
Extreme Temperature labels can withstand extremely high temperatures (up to 350°C) and are used to identify printed circuit board & electronic components. They are mainly used for traceability and they offer good barcode printability. To resist extreme heat, Extreme Temperature labels are made out of Polyimide, as opposed to Polyester for normal circumstances.
Brady has a wide range of polyimides available in different colours, all with ESD characteristics, suited for automatic applying and usable in a variety of print technologies.
Measured, weighed, and cleared for heavy duty
Brady Resistant labels are born from one of the most comprehensive R&D programs in the world. They are launched only after extensive laboratory testing and field-testing with solvents, fuels and chemicals. As a customer you can select the durable material you need and print it using the dedicated ribbon to guarantee resistant labels against all types of solvents.

Most widely used wire and cable markers for a reason
Brady offers a full range of wire & cable labelling solutions. Brady’s self-laminating labels are the most popular wire identification solution in ICT & Telecom, especially used with copper cables, the typical CAT6 or CAT7 solutions. Brady offers specific labels that, when removed, don’t damage a fibre-optic cable. What’s more, Brady fibre-optic cable labels only slightly touch the fibre-optic and never interfere with its data transfer capacity.
Self-laminating labels protect their printing with a water and UV resistant overlaminate, making them suitable for use both outdoors and underground. Our sleeves can be repositioned when applied. Once heated, they are also insulating. The Brady Tag range offers many options including overlaminates and the ability to withstand harsh environments for many years. For panelbuilders, Durasleeves are the preferred solution, allowing identification of cables before or after they are attached.
