Few applications require the performance demands of the United States Armed Forces. Further, with MIL-STD-130, labeling and tracking military property has become mandatory.
MPC’s Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum is the go-to material for durable, permanent identification of assets used by the military since 1960. Starting with specification by the U.S. Navy, Metalphoto has since been used for the labeling of thousands of equipment components for Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Bell, Sikorsky, General Dynamics, and many others.
With superior resistance against abrasion, extreme temperatures, sunlight degradation, corrosion and chemical exposure, Metalphoto has proven outdoor durability of more than 20 years. Metalphoto’s durability comes from its photographic image that is sealed beneath a sapphire-hard anodic layer.
