What is a lamacoid?
Lamacoids have been used for decades to produce low cost industrial labels, signs and nameplates.
Lamacoid is an industry term used to describe labels made from multi-ply, multi-colour plastic sheets. The top ply of the sheet is engraved to reveal the colour underneath. At ScanPlast use both rotary engravers and state-of-the-art laser engravers to produce lamacoids with crisp, clear text and graphics.
What are lamacoids used for?
Lamacoids are frequently used for identification purposes, such as recording serial numbers, product codes or cable numbers. In other instances, lamacoids function as labels, tags or dials on equipment where they display operating instructions. Lamacoids are also used to label equipment and production facilities with important safety warnings and signage.
Because they’re made with plastic, lamacoids are best suited for indoor applications where they won’t be subjected to extreme temperatures, UV light or high levels of abrasion.
Lamacoids are generally fastened to equipment and cables with double-sided adhesive tape, rivets or ty-wraps.
If you’re not sure if lamacoids are the best labelling solution for your application, give us a call. We specialize in a wide range of labelling technologies, including screen printing, laser marking, etching and digital printing. Our Customer Service representatives will can help you select the best technology to suit your needs.
Lamacoid layouts and design
ScanPlast’s in-house graphic design team can create layouts and suggest colours to ensure your lamacoids are clear, professional and legible.
The most common colour combinations used in electrical applications are white labels with black text and black labels with white text. For safety signs and warning labels, yellow with black text, as well as red with white text are most often used. Silver lamacoids with black text are popular for nameplates as they provide a metallic, high quality appearance.
