All of our Metalphoto® aluminum nameplates are anodized and sealed to withstand exposure to every kind of weather, extreme temperatures, sunlight, acids, salt spray, fungus and abrasives. Metalphoto® aluminum is available in a variety of finishes, thicknesses and sizes.
Should You Pick Polycarbonate, Polyester or Aluminum Nameplates?
Anodized aluminum nameplates are used for rating plates, dials and scales, templates, instructional tags, corporate identity and serial numbers. Aluminum nameplates also meet ANSI, military, as well as UL specifications. Aluminum nameplates are a favorite among our clients looking for an attractive finish in a hard, scratch-resistant material. Our cutting equipment even allows us to cut your aluminum nameplate into any shape you need, no matter the thickness.
Like aluminum, polycarbonate nameplates have superior mechanical strength, toughness and clarity. They can also survive extreme environmental conditions, such as high temperatures, chemical abrasions, and corrosion. Polycarbonates are known for their dimensional stability, optical clarity, printability and graphic design freedom. They can have a clear or textured finish. They can be embossed, die cut, lasered, selective textured and/or selective adhesive can be applied. They are also available in a wide range of thicknesses, from .005” to .118”, depending on the application.
Polyester is a versatile material that has many applications, including use in electronics, magnetic media, packaging, product identification, imaging and graphing. Both materials are great for harsh indoor and outdoor environments. Polyester nameplates meet a lot of rigorous job specs, including high tensile strength, durability, clarity, resistance to abrasion and solvents, resistance to shrinking and stretching and low electrical conduction.
