There are many different types of engraving laminate available on the market, but for all mechanical, electrical and building services uses we recommend using the Traffolyte hard engraving laminate.
We always use this hard engraving laminate when producing all of our engraved labels, tags and discs. This material can only be engraved using a rotary engraving machine and cannot be laser engraved.
Available in 1.5mm and 3mm thicknesses, the material is described as a 3 ply rigid or hard laminate (also known as Traffolyte, Ivorine or Formica).
The hard laminate comes in a variety of 3 ply colours. As an example, when using a white/black/white hard laminate, the top white layer is engraved into to reveal the centre or middle black core, so creating black lettering on a white background.
Have a look at the short video below to see why it is imperative to use this material:
We hope you will find our new store a great improvement on the old one and if you purchase valve tags from us, I’m sure you will be as pleased as us that the discounted rates are now worked out online and you do not have to rely on us to manually adjust the prices!
Another improvement is the input boxes for adding your personalised details – there is now much more space and more fields so that you can clearly see all the information you are adding. These are just a couple of new features. Let us know what you think of the new store – we welcome your feedback, good and bad, so that we can continue to improve!
If you do have any problems getting to grips with the new site, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01348 840 675 and we will be more than happy to help out 🙂
We are pleased to announce that due to our increased workload, over the last few months we have been busy recruiting and training new staff so that we can continue to provide the best possible service and the quickest possible turnaround on all orders.

There are a large variety of products available for marking up pipework and sometime it is hard to know which product is the most suitable. Detailed below are some of the options available to you:
A quick and cost effective solution for marking up pipework that does not require full banding. We have a large range of standard self-adhesive pipe markers to choose from and each marker has an arrow either end allowing you to cut off one arrow, leaving the remaining arrow to indication the direction of flow. You can also add your own text to the pipe markers. Available in three sizes to suit all pipe diameters. The Water Pipe Markers are colour banded for water from the Public Water Supply or Any Other Source and for Potable or Non Potable Water. All of the Pipe Marker colours comply with the BS 1710 2014 requirements. View the Pipe Markers
Ideal if you need to mark up pipework with full colour banding. Each piece of banding is available in three sizes to suit all pipework diameters and is long enough to wrap around the pipe. The banding comes with descriptive text viewable from any direction and includes directional arrows, saving time building up full banding with individual rolls of tape. All of the Pipe Banding colours comply with the BS 1710 2014 requirements. View the Pipe Banding
