This tag comes in a variety of materials, thicknesses, and colors. Other options are available upon request.
Mill Finish: * Thicknesses: .016" or .025" * Colors: Aluminum
3003 Aluminum is alloyed with 1.2% manganese, which increases the strength of the metal. The 3003 alloy has excellent workability, weldability and corrosion resistance for an aluminum material. H14 designates the temper, and means the metal has been strain hardened, and partially annealed. In this condition, the metal can be easily formed, with a zero bend radius in thicknesses up to 1/32" thick. Embossing or debossing metal in this temper will not fracture or strain the metal.
* Workability: Excellent for embossing. Full .018” character height can be achieved. * Corrosion Resistance: Excellent * Welding Characteristics: Excellent * Base metal melting point = 1200° * Annealing temperature = 750° * Magnetic: No
505 alloys possess good welding characteristics and good resistance to corrosion in a marine atmosphere. In addition, this alloy is often referred to as AQ or Anodize Quality aluminum. The major alloying element of this material is magnesium in sufficient quantities to cause substantial lowering of the melting point without producing brittleness in the resulting alloy. When magnesium is used as the major alloying element or with manganese, the result is a moderate to high strength non-heat-treatable alloy.
The 5005 variety is anodized with a variety of organic colors. Long-term exposure to bright sunlight may fade the colors.

Thicknesses: .015"" Colors: Brass
Copper, 70%; Zinc, 30% Cartridge brass, 70% has excellent tensile strength and is very ductile, being better than Yellow Brass in this respect. It can be subjected to severe cold working in deep drawing, spinning, rolling, stamping, flaring and forming. Formerly known as Deep Drawing Brass, Grommet Brass, Spring Brass and Spinning Brass, these names are an indication of its fabricating qualities. It is ideally suited for the production of artillery and small arms cartridge cases and for musical instruments, snap fasteners, eyelets, reflectors, lighting fixtures, and automobile radiators.
• • Workability: Excellent for embossing. • Corrosion Resistance: Good • Welding Characteristics: Yes • Base metal melting point = 1750° • Annealing temperature = 1350° • Magnetic: No
