Original Press Release:
Unique Permanent Plastic Product Identification System
April, 2005 - Terracon Corporation is proud to introduce the TerraMark permanent identification system for plastic products, the first of its kind in the pharmaceutical industry.
TerraMark is a proprietary process of permanently applying chemical-resistant color-coded labels to plastic tanks and components, allowing permanent identification and tracking information to be affixed. Color-coding provides quick visual reference to prevent cross-contamination errors at every handling stage.
Current methods of identifying plastic components include taping labels on, scratching numbers or letters into the tank or spray-painting through stencils. All of these methods have their drawbacks. The composition of plastic does not lend itself well to permanent adhesion of labels. Color applied to scratched-in areas fades over time with handling and washing of the plastic component and may not be legible. Stenciling may not stand up to product spills, splashes or repeated cleaning. Existing mold-in labels require large minimum quantities and do not offer the flexibility of Terra-Mark.
TerraMark is the only product that can label permanently with no product contact, and offers a professional appearance with no minimum quantity in a cost-effective manner. Terra-Mark is especially suited for the pharmaceutical industry, where identification errors can have costly ramifications, but has applications in other industries as well. TerraMark's flexibility and Terracon's fast turnaround means every tank can be uniquely marked in a cost-effective manner. No minimum quantities are required.
TerraMark's large easy-to-read fonts and variety of colors are offered at prices ranging from $25-$50 depending on variables and come in a maximum of 12" wide x 3" tall. TerraMark is offered exclusively by Terracon Corporation.
