Electrical panel labels, also known as data plates, provide essential information about an electrical panel necessary for operation, maintenance, and repairs. Electrical panel labels provide a clear, permanently readable data plate to convey information such as electrical specifications, load rating, operating and maintenance instructions, and other required data.
MPC’s electrical panel labels are available in metal or plastic. Typically constructed of durable Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum, they’re an excellent choice to meet the durability requirements of applications where permanent legibility is critical. With a photographic image sealed inside a layer of anodized aluminum, Metalphoto provides exceptional resistance to abrasion, chemical exposure, corrosion, sunlight degradation, and extreme temperatures.
Metalphoto of Cincinnati offers nameplates in a variety of standard material options, including our proprietary Metalphoto® substrate. Metalphoto is photosensitive anodized aluminum, which features a silver and black photographic image that is embedded within the sapphire-hard anodic layer of the aluminum. This combination gives a Metalphoto part an outdoor life of over 20 years, and makes it extremely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure. The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers (GPI) Industry Standards and Practices Manual identifies Metalphoto as the most durable printed aluminum substrate available, and it has been trusted by industry, government and military organizations like Caterpillar, The US Navy, NASA, and Boeing for over 50 years. Metalphoto offers many unique features including:
