Our customer service representative will take your order over the phone and ask you to send an Excel file by email.

Q. Are Aluminum Valve Tags available in a triangular shape?


No. Aluminum Valve Tags are available in square, circular, and octagonal shapes. These shapes offer ample area for easy text viewing. Whether it’s a 1-inch wide circular tag or a 3-inch square tag, all our Aluminum Valve tags are easily customizable with two to three lines of text.

Q. What is the hole size on Anodized Aluminum Tags?


Tags come with a pre-punched 3/16 inch (5 mm) wide hole at the top center. This size is ideal for commonly used beaded chains, jack chains, S-hooks, nylon ties, and other standard valve tag fasteners as they can easily pass through the hole.

Q. Are aluminum valve tags thicker than plastic valve tags?


No. Aluminum valve tags are 50 mil thick, which is thicker than a US dime but thinner than a quarter. Plastic valve tags, on the other hand, are 60 mil thick. Plastic tags tolerate temperatures up to 170°F. In both types, the print is engraved, allowing the text to stand out against the contrasting core color.

Q. What is the preferred attachment option with these valve tags?


We offer the following attachment options with Aluminum Valve tags - 

  • - Beaded Chain - No. 6 Beaded Chain is 4 inches long and 0.12 inches thick. Each chain piece has a locking link.
  • - Jack Chain - No. 16 Brass Jack Chain is 5 inches long and 0.25 inches thick.
  • - S-Hook - Made up of non-rusting brass, the "S" Hook measures 0.875 x 0.25 inches, ideal for valves with ¼ inches of stem diameter.

Every tag fastener is ideal for different applications and the preferred attachment method depends on the type of valve you want to tag. 

Q. What is the minimum order quantity for Custom Anodized Valve Tags? Is it possible to order just one tag?


Yes, you can order just one Custom Anodized Valve Tag. There is no minimum order quantity. Just add your text in two or three lines (depending on the size you choose), select a font, adjust text, choose a tag color, and enter your quantity. You can see the preview of your custom design while designing itself. Set of Sequential Numbered Tags With System Headers comes in a pack of 25 tags.

Q. Is it possible to add a design or logo to the Aluminum valve tag?

You can add text, numbers, and symbols but not a logo or design to the Aluminum Valve Tag. The custom text is engraved into the metal, allowing letters and numbers to stand out boldly against the background color of your choice. Text is engraved on one side of the tag while the other side is plain

Q. What are the shipping charges for blank aluminum valve tags?

The shipping cost depends on the carrier, shipping speed, weight, and distance. While placing your order, you will see the "estimate shipping cost" option. You may use it to find the shipping cost for your order with your zip code and the shipping method.

Excellent solvent resistance

Tags were exactly as expected. I was looking for something with good solvent resistance so I tested these. I didn't see any fading issues with the anodizing dye even after washing with methylene chloride which is a pretty tough solvent to deal with.
