What is Metalphoto?
Metalphoto’s durability comes from its image – which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminum, providing corrosion, sunlight, abrasion, temperature and chemical resistance. Its unique, photographic imaging process creates ultra-high resolution graphics and variable information – including machine-readable barcodes, anti-counterfeit security features and serialized data.
Since its development in 1950, Metalphoto has been trusted by leading OEMs, military and government organizations for nameplate, label and control panel applications where permanence, resolution, variable data or a combination of those characteristics is required.
Why use Metalphoto for Your Nameplate application?
Metalphoto is resistant to many conditions commonly found in outdoor environments that would erode most identification products printed on other materials. This is why Metalphoto is the perfect material for any nameplates, signs, labels or control panels that need to stand up to harsh outdoor environments, or any project where permanent identification that will remain legible for the life of the product is crucial.
See for yourself
Check out Metalphoto’s durability characteristics and you will understand why it is the go-to option for permanent product identification:
A 400 hour Weatherometer Test GG-P-455P, which is the estimated equivalent to 20 years of outdoor exposure, had no affect on Metalphoto.
Exposure to 5% salt spray at 95°F for 700 hours had no effect on Metalphoto.
Standard Metalphoto readable up to 500°F, Image Intensified Metalphoto readable up to 800°F. Both tested for a 24-hour oven exposure. Inquire for heat resistance up to 1,000°F.
7000 cycles on a Taber Abraser with a CS17 wheel, a total of 1000 gm. load, only resulted in a slight dulling of Metalphoto’s surface; the image was not affected.
Metalphoto was immersed in a full battery of chemicals at different temperatures for different lengths of time, all with little to no effect.
