Anodized Aluminum Front Panels
The Performance of Aluminum with Superior Abrasion Resistance
MPC’s Anodized Aluminum Front Panels are an ideal choice for front panels because of their exceptional abrasion resistance. The anodic layer is impervious to weather, and provides excellent resistance to abrasion, corrosion, chemicals and solvents. Anodized aluminum may be a cost effective alternative to Metalphoto for certain applications.
Anodized aluminum front panels are available with a one-part or two-part panel construction and in either brushed, satin or matte finishes. A one-part panel construction uses just one thick sheet of anodized aluminum containing graphic elements and is fabricated to your panel design using one or more processes in our machine and print shops. A two-part panel construction is engineered from a thin sheet of anodized aluminum with graphic elements, which is then affixed to an identically fabricated thicker supporting aluminum or stainless steel back panel.
Why Choose MPC’s Anodized Aluminum Front Panels?
- Images are sealed beneath the anodic layer for increased durability.
- Superior resistance to abrasion, chemicals, solvents, and extreme temperatures. Black graphics possess the greatest durability with expected exterior life of up to 10 years. Color options have limited UV resistance.
- After fabrication, edges and holes of the finished parts are not anodized; in panels .063” or thicker, edges can be anodized, alodined or painted for increased durability and protection.
- Precision fabrication in our machine and print shops to your design specifications in thicknesses ranging from .003” to .125”.
