Metalphoto® for Unmatched Durability and Graphic Capabilities
Our company name comes from Metalphoto photographic anodized aluminum, a proprietary metal substrate that gives our identification products unmatched durability and graphics capabilities. Metalphoto’s 3556 dpi, photographic resolution image offers graphic capabilities that other materials and printing methods simply cannot achieve. Because the material is photographically imaged sub-surface rather than printed or painted or etched or engraved, the image combines photo quality capabilites with superior resistance to damage and degradation, even in extreme outdoor environments.
IUID Environmental Survivability Testing Proves Metalphoto’s Superior Durability
The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers (GPI) Industry Standards and Practices Manual identifies Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum as the most durable printed aluminum substrate available, and it has been trusted by defense, military, and government organizations for over 50 years. It’s sub-surface image gives a Metalphoto part an outdoor life of over 20 years, and makes it extremely resistant to damage or degradation, even in the harshest environments and conditions. Read how in a survivability study conducted by the US Navy, Metalphoto outperformed the other 72 materials evalutated across 38 simulated environment durablity tests.
