Make your mark using our Industrial Branding Irons. Heavy duty, high power units for use on road furniture, barrels, pallets, crates, scaffold boards etc.
Many of our customers in industry have asked us what’s the best way to leave a permanent mark on things like road furniture, scaffolding, and packing crates. We recommend Bolsons Electric Brands for making a clear, permanent seal that looks really striking (and discourages thieves to boot!).

Interchangeable branding irons
If you have a requirement to brand interchangeable serial numbers or names, we can help.
We supply the complete system of heater unit, branding head and the interchangeable characters using a slide in dovetail groove. We can supply the letters and numbers in a range of sizes from 6mm – 50mm high. In addition, complete words and short phrases can be engraved to order.
Electric Brands work much like a soldering iron, only on a larger scale. Your logo is cast onto the end of an electric brand, which is then heated in a similar way to a soldering iron. Once it’s nice and hot, the mark will quickly and easily brand a range of materials – most often, wood and plastic. We’ve sold electric branding irons for a range of materials, from wooden pallets to plastic road blockades.
How to Brand Your Products

When you’re branding large wooden items, we recommend our larger branding irons. It’s best to give the iron at least 20 minutes to heat up fully before making any marks, and always do a test brand on a bit of spare material before marking your items. While the brand is on be sure not to touch the end, as it gets very hot. For some applications you may need a temperature control unit to get the best result.
To make a good brand, keep the electric branding iron square and level with the surface, then firmly push it into the material. As a rule of thumb, you don’t want to leave it in large items for longer than 10-20 seconds, otherwise you’ll lose the fine detail.
While the brand is still hot, move on to the next item – you’ll find you can do quite a few items in one sitting. Keep practising and vary the pressure on your test items until you’re happy with the mark you’re looking for.
What Should I Use My Branding Iron On?
We recommend Bolsons Electric Brands for a range of materials, including wood, plastic and even food. We also provide other marking services – such as laser engraving, embossing, and bespoke rubber stamps. Every mark is different, so talk to us first to discuss which brand is right for your project. For branding synthetic materials, you will need a Power regulator, shown below, to control the temperature of the brand. This will prevent burning and excessive melting.
