Nameplate Metals & Finishes
Durable Aluminum Nameplates
Hallmark Nameplate offers premium quality aluminum nameplates in different alloys and finishes. This includes Metalphoto® nameplates, which are made from photosensitive anodized aluminum.
Of all the available nameplate materials, aluminum is extremely durable, lightweight, versatile, and scratch-resistant, which makes it one of the most widely used materials for nameplates. Aluminum nameplates can stand up to harsh weather, various chemicals, and heavy usage. They can last for many years. Our aluminum nameplates are available in 1000, 1100, 1145, and 5005 aluminum alloys.
Aluminum tags withstand harsh environments and heavy industrial use. Aluminum nameplates can be designed to meet military, ANSI, UL, and CSA specifications. Aluminum is a great nameplate material for clients that want an attractive finish in a hard, tarnish proof and rust-proof material. Aluminum is frequently used for outside applications, but it can also be used inside. Its most common use is for equipment asset tags.
Strong Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel is an extremely strong, long-lasting, tarnish-proof, and rust-proof material. Durability, versatility, and corrosion resistance sets stainless steel nameplates apart from other metal tags. It is an alloy that’s mostly composed of low-carbon steel and chromium. Other elements, like nickel, titanium, and molybdenum, can be used to enhance the quality. Chromium adds to the “stainless” qualities, while other elements make the material more durable and malleable. Available thicknesses include .018”, .030”, .050”, .062” and .125”.
Stainless steel has 3 main classifications:
Austenitic stainless steel carries 200 and 300 series numbers while ferritic and martensitic classes belong in the 400 series. Nameplates often use the 304 series, which is the most common stainless steel grade and has a composition of 18% chromium and 8% nickel. We also carry 316 series stainless steel, which includes additional molybdenum that helps raise its resistance to more types of corrosion. If you have other alloys in mind for your stainless steel nameplates, these can be made available upon request.
Metalphoto Nameplates – Photosensitive Anodized Aluminum Labels
Metalphoto® is recommended for nameplates that must be extremely durable and unaffected by harsh indoor and outdoor conditions, with high-resolution graphics.
Metalphoto nameplates are made from 1100 alloy anodized aluminum, using a special process that doesn’t involve traditional printing. Instead, the image is sealed inside photosensitive, anodized aluminum, which makes the nameplate resistant to almost anything.
The graphics have the appearance of printed ink but with far greater longevity. Metalphoto nameplates are rated for at least 20 years of outdoor use. Regardless of the environment, the nameplate design won’t ever fade or wear off. This means fewer nameplate replacements and greater compliance with regulatory requirements.
Metalphoto labels are engineered for optimal readability through virtually any operating conditions.
Because of Metalphoto’s proven performance, resilience, and adherence to strict specifications, most industrial, military, and government organizations have specified it for their asset tags and for other applications for more than 65 years. Metalphoto tags are used on everything from offshore oil rigs to NASA’s space station.
Durable and Long-Lasting – The image, which is silver-halide based, is embedded and sealed inside the anodized aluminum. This image remains clear and readable even after long-term exposure to harsh environmental conditions like extreme weather, sunlight and UV, heat, chemicals, oil, abrasion, accelerated light and weather, accelerated oxygen aging, acids, cleaning solutions, fungus, graffiti, moisture, organic solvents, saltwater corrosion, stains, and thermal shock. The aluminum base is extremely rigid and won’t crack, peel, or delaminate.
Photographic Resolution – High image resolution enables the printing of small marks, with the option to print security features like watermarks and micro text to verify authenticity. This also allows for very small printing where surface area is limited.
Supports Variable Information – Metalphoto nameplates and labels can be used for unique serialized data, barcodes with any type of symbols or special instructions. This ability streamlines asset tracking and reduces the chance of data entry errors.
