Electrical wire labels are crucial for safety and compliance, providing essential information for identifying and repairing electrical control panels other electrical components. These labels identify the manufacturer for a piece of equipment or component, the date it was manufactured, and the item’s serial number or model number, as well as critical information for working with these components such as load rating, electrical specifications, instructions for safe operation and maintenance, and other required data.
MPC’s electrical wire labels are available in metal or plastic. In applications requiring permanent product or process information, Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum is typically used. With a photographic image sealed inside the anodized aluminum, Metalphoto offers excellent durability. Offering superior resistance to corrosion, degradation from sunlight exposure, abrasion, chemical exposure, and extreme temperatures, Metalphoto electrical wire labels remain readable throughout the life of your assets.
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:
