The coloured sheets are made from resins with the colour pigments blended in, and the tags are tough and are “non-tearable”. It can withstand rough handling and does not become brittle or discoloured even after prolonged exposure to the elements. The PVC tags are guaranteed with a tension strength of 465 kgf/cm2 approved by the authority in Taiwan, Our imported PVC sheets are specially made to one side rough and one side smooth. The rough side plastic are good for printing and writing by paint-marker for long lasting and non-erasable.

Why use plastic tags as log marking/ tree marking?

Number System Sdn Bhd can claim the honour of introducing plastic tags for log marking in Malaysia. It is introduced out of necessity. For almost half a century various methods of markings were employed but as more forest areas are logged and logging industry expanded and volume increased by heaps and bounds the old methods of marking could no longer be used. The old methods involved the use of paints and brush; at one stage chiseling, and a combination of both, and in some regions using cardboards and zinc and tinplates. All these were time consuming, cumbersome, expensive, wasteful and above all dangerous. Markings were easily and speedily defaced. The advantages of using plastic tags are manifold overcoming all the difficulties over the old methods an dabove all are cheap, safe and flexible.
