At Melrose, we manufacture high-quality Metalphoto nameplates for customers where identification is critical. These nameplates are photosensitive, making them perfect for high-resolution printing.
Leverage the benefits and technical specifications of Metalphoto nameplates to create a durable nameplate solution for your project in any operative environment.
Metalphoto nameplates are made from unsealed anodized aluminum with an embedded silver halide material. When exposed through a negative film to an exposure lamp, the silver halides in the material turn black, creating an image. The unexposed halides are washed away, and the aluminum is sealed in a heated solution.
The finished product is fully anodized, meaning the black exposed areas and the natural aluminum background are sealed beneath the anodic layer of the aluminum. Additional colors can be added to the nameplate by screen printing of dyes before sealing.
Metalphoto nameplate has resistance performance characteristics to various factors, making it a specified material for nameplates, labels, and control panels.
Metalphoto nameplates are known for their military specification compliance and the ability to produce black-on-silver photographic detail sealed in an anodized aluminum coating. They can include variable data as well as photographic images. This process is standard among aerospace companies, and Melrose has the experience to deliver components for the most demanding applications.
