Customize Metal Nameplates by Material
We can produce custom metal plates with a variety of materials. We only use the best quality of materials for metal name plates. Some include:
Aluminum is one of the most versatile materials we offer. It is lightweight, yet highly durable. Aluminum is often anodized which makes it resistant to the elements. During the anodization process, a solid color can be added. This means anodized aluminum nameplates can come with a variety of color options. Specialized photosensitive aluminum is the only material used for the MetalPhoto process.
Another popular option for nameplate material is brass. These are often selected due to their vintage look after they start to wear. The material is often used in plumbing or electrical applications.
If you need the highest level of durability from a nameplate, stainless steel is your best bet. It is incredibly sturdy and will withstand harsh environments. The only limitation to longevity will be the process that you select. For example, an embossed tag will work perfectly for decades while a screen-printed steel tag will turn into a (very durable) blank tag after a few months after the ink wears off.
What’s a Metal Nameplate Used For?
Metal nameplates are used for a variety of purposes ranging from identification to safety warnings, and many of the nameplates available are customizable with any image, design, or information. That means you can decide exactly how you want nameplates to work in your business.
Here are some common applications:
What Applications Are Metal Nameplates Used For?
Custom metal nameplates are used in in variety of industrial applications. MetalPhoto nameplates are protected with an anodized substrate allowing you to effectively “print” with any images, graphics, or information for a near-permanent application.
Data plates are great for tracking assets such as equipment by adding barcodes. The high durability of using metal material means your data plates will hold up in harsh environments.
Industries such as aerospace rely on metal nameplates for their identification needs. Aircraft placards are vital for job safety, as well as meeting required aviation standards.
