Gorillabel from InfoSight Corp. is made from transparent a Gorilla Glass disk.Click image to enlargeGorillabel from InfoSight Corp. is a label technology that helps workers identify components used in highly abrasive environments. 

The identification label, which is pre-marked by InfoSight, is made from transparent a Gorilla Glass disk. Countersinking the label into a shallow machined pocket maintains the surface level of the component. 

After severe abrasion, simply wiping the label with a liquid which matches the glass index of refraction restores its clarity. 

The label will survive anything the component must survive, including:

  • boilouts - cleaning at or above boiling temperatures (100oC/212oF) and high pH (12 or above)
  • long term immersion in temperatures over 300oC (570oF)
  • extended slurry abrasion

This rugged barcoded label was developed for downhole petroleum drilling component identification. Other potential applications include fracking components, mining components, and bulldozer and backhoe parts.

Data vital to the operation of each component, such as maintenance records and length of service, is immediately available to the operator with a simple smart phone scan.  This is useful for planning maintenance on equipment and reducing risks to both production and safety.
