These data plates can be mounted or welded directly onto equipment. Plates can be acid etched, laser etched, or screen printed, and are rated for use in harsh environments. Available in stock thickenesses from .020"-.050", as well as custom thicknesses and sizes.
Tags and Plates
We can create custom aluminum tags and plates to fit nearly any need. Tags and plates can either be acid etched, screen printed, sublimated, or we can apply a vinyl overlay. If you are unsure of the method you need, we can assist in helping you determine which method will work best for your requirements.
Aluminum Coated Tags
For a more flexible aluminum tag, we offer aluminum coated tags, which are very thin and can mold to nearly any surface. We can provide these tags in a light or heavy duty weight, with or without adhesive.
Vinyl Coated Aluminum
A self-adhesive vinyl decal is laminated with a clear overlay, then rolled onto the aluminum to produce a hight quality, full-color image. Great for signs of all sizes, these can be produced on sheets up to 48" x 144" and in thicknesses of .040", .060", and .080". Vinyl coated aluminum signs are an economical option that is suitable for both interior and exterior use.
For powerful, high definition text and graphics, and photographic images, we can sublimate on aluminum sheets up to 12" x 15" and in thicknesses of .020" and .030". The results are stunning, but currently only approved for indoor use.
Laser Etched Aluminum
If you require low quantities of aluminum tags and plates, laser etched aluminum is to be considered. While laser etching cannot be done on traditional aluminum alone, it can be done on anodized aluminum, AlumaMark, and DuraBlack aluminum.
Metalphoto is a specialized type of photosensitive anodized aluminum designed to stand up to hard use and harsh environmental conditions. After the aluminum is anodized, text and images are actually sealed inside the metal. Both steps ensure protection against corrosion, sunlight, temperature changes, abrasion, salt spray, and exposure to chemicals. These steps also guarantee the plaque, nameplate, sign, label, or tag will remain smooth, crisp, and legible for years to come.
