Exceptionally Durable. Widely Specified. Photographic Resolution..

For over 50 years, industrial and military engineers have specified Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum for durable nameplates, barcode labels, service schematics and control panels installed in harsh operating environments. Metalphoto’s proprietary technology permanently seals a UV-stable image inside of anodized aluminum, offering the confidence of unparalleled durability, image resolution and barcode readability.

Because of its ability to withstand a range of challenging environmental conditions, Metalphoto is recommended for rating plates, inspection barcodes, maintenance schematics and other exposed identification on solar, wind and hydroelectric energy systems. Metalphoto meets an array of energy specifications including OSHA 1910.145, National Electric Code (NEC) Article 690, ANSI Z535.4 and ISO 3864. Designed for permanency,

Metalphoto will not fade or need to be replaced. If replacement is desired, Metalphoto is 100% recyclable. Metalphoto can be produced at your location where and when needed or purchased from worldwide network of approved suppliers. Contact Horizons Imaging Systems Group to get Metalphoto specified into your designs.
