Mark by yourself with ARDES marking pen

ARDES marking pen gives a freedom of choice to mark visual ear tags once in the field, near animals. Two types of tip are available (beveled and round) allowing a large or precise writing according to needs. This option is the most economical because visual ear tags are bought blank. It offers a high contrast thanks to a black ink studied and tested to interpenetrate in the plastic material, and to insure a durable numbers readability.


Durable readability with a laser marking

Barcodes, numbering, name of breeding, logo and high definition picture had a high precision and clearness. The marking is permanently readable because the laser marks deep in the identification ear tag’s plastic material. The laser beam creates a reaction with an additive in the ear tags composition that allows this black pigmentation in the ear tag. Abrasion resistance researches in laboratory estimates a clear readability of the marking at least 8 years in the animal’s ear.
