Stainless Steel Cremation Tags: Identification for peace of mind

Did you know that 53% of Americans were cremated in 2018 instead of buried? Or that pet cremation is the largest it has even been among Millenials and Gen Z pet owners according to Forbes? As more humans and pets use cremation, proper identification will become even more important. Tags with unique identification numbers ensure that loved ones receive the correct remains. According to the Cremation Association of North America (CANA), Washington, Nevada, and Oregon are the top 3 states with the highest cremation rates.

Cremation Tags with unique ID number

As stated by the International Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association (ICCFA) Identification Guidelines, “Funeral homes should implement a reliable system for the identification of human remains to give consumers assurance that safeguards are in place to minimize the incidence of misidentification. Further, in the case of a disinterment, or if a flood, earthquake, or other natural disaster disturb the place of interment, the identification and reinterment of the human remains would be facilitated by this system.”

 

National Band & Tag offers custom stamped stainless steel cremation tags that can have your crematory name, a unique ID number, and any other information you need on them. Cremation ovens get up to 1400 – 1800°F  degrees in order to break down the bone. But 304 stainless steel has a melting point of 2000+°F. This allows the tag to go into the oven with the remains and stay with them through the whole process. Thus, meeting the ICCFA’s guidelines as listed above. NB&T cremation tags (ID Discs), work for both human or pet cremations.

Utility and Telephone Pole Tags

Every type of power, utility, or telecommunications pole must be inspected, which is a very time-consuming process. Power Pole Tags provide clear information on each pole which provides accurate data, thus making the inspector’s job easier and more efficient. National Band & Tag specializes in custom metal tags. We can create a multitude of looks on a variety of tag shapes to meet your needs. Check out some different material and customization options below:

MATERIAL:

The most popular material for power pole tags is UV stable Black Aluminum material because it is guaranteed to last outdoors for 20+ years. UV Stable Black Aluminum also has high visibility for easy reading with the white letters on a black background. Plain (silver) aluminum is also popular for simple, stamped, cost-effective tags. Non-corrosive stainless steel is another option for extremely harsh environments.
