Aircraft Line Specification Tape

A partial list of Part Number we are compliant and produced: PO16, ST9M389, BACT, LD172, 9M95, MD175, LS35104

Identification tape codes indicate the function, contents, hazards, direction of flow, and pressure in the fluid line. These tapes are applied according to MIL-STD-1247. This Military Standard was issued to standardize fluid line identification throughout the Department of Defense. The function of a line is identified by the use of a tape. The tape is approximately 1-inch wide, where words, colors, and geometric symbols are printed. Functional identification markings, as shown in MIL-STD-1247, are the subject of international standardization agreement. The function of the line is printed in English across the colored portion of the tape. Three-fourths of the total width on the left side has the color code. Non-English speaking people can troubleshoot or maintain the aircraft if they now the color code. The right-hand, one-fourth of the functional identification tape contains a geometric symbol that is different for every function. This symbol ensures that all technicians, whether colorblind or non-English speaking will be able to identify the line function.

  • PRINTING
    LABELS ARE PRINTED USING THE PROCESS OF FLEXOGRAPHY AND HOT FOIL STAMPING. USING FLEXOGRAPHY WE CAN PRINT PROCESS WORK AND UP TO SIX COLORS USING PMS OR CUSTOM COLORS. USING THE PROCESS OF FOIL STAMPING WE CAN ENHANCE ANY LABEL BY APPLYING METALIC COLORS, GOLD SILVER OR A VARIETY OF SOLID COLORS THAT ADDS EYE APPEAL TO ANY LABEL

  • FACE STOCK
    THE PRIMARY SURFACE FOR PRINTING. FACE STOCKS COME IN A VARIETY OF MATERIALS FROM PAPER, FOILS, AND FILMS. EACH FACE STOCK HAS ITS OWN CHARECTERISTICS WITH RESPECT TO PRINTING (INK ABSORPTION) AND FLEXABILITY.

  • ADHESIVE
    THERE IS A GREAT VARIETY OF ADHESIVES AND THEY SHOULD BE CHOSEN (ALONG WITH THE FACE STOCK) DEPENDING ON WHAT  APPLICATION THE LABEL IS TO USED FOR.

    DIE CUT LABELS IN GENERAL HAVE ROUND CORNERS AND ARE CUT WITH A VERY PRECISE ROTARY DIE MANUFCTURED TO CUT OUT THE SHAPE SPECIFIED. GENERALLY, THERE IS A SPACING BETWEEN LABELS ON A ROLL AND THERE IS EXCESS BACKING ON THE SIDE OF THE LABEL.

    KNIFE CUT ("BUTT CUT") LABELS ARE SEPERATED BY A SLIT BETWEEN THE LABELS AND ARE RECTANGULAR IN SHAPE AND DO NOT REQUIRE A SPECIAL DIE TO CUT FROM THE MATRIX.
