A few years ago I found some on Ebay that were from Taiwan. Hottest ones I ever saw. I ordered a pack of 12 and was amazed when I got them home and checke them. Search Ebay for "lantern mantles thorium"

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Small Metallic CRAM Labels??
Can anyone tell me of a vendor for metallic labels, or perhaps thin plaques. which we could use to mark a curved, stainless steel, surface (instrument housing), fairly permanently? The surface gets hot enough (>/= 150 C) to fry ordinary paper and plastic labels. The x/y dimensions should be not more than ~ 2 cm / 5-7 cm, with thickness of maybe a millimeter. I think that it should not be hugely difficult to find an appropriate adhesive (they sell aerospace glues at the Home Depot, I'll warrant), so if it is just a piece of metal that's ok. If it is a plaque, we can get our instrument-maker to bend it to the correct curvature.
P.S. Someone remind me, please, of vendors for thoriated lantern mantles, e.g., Sears, an outdoor store, etc., or perhaps a brandname of such mantles. I think that someone observed, once, that mantles of Th were made in India. I recently saw mantles (Texsport Item No.
14210), which claimed Th-nitrates as the primary ingredient, and had all sorts of safety warnings as copy on the packets (evidently largely to comply with California law), but they are not radio-active.
