Heavy, off-road equipment operate in rugged environments. Abrasion, hydraulic fluid, sunlight exposure and road salt corrosion threaten the readability of nameplates and labels, which can impede safe operation, cost companies downtime, and even lead to regulatory fines.
MPC’s Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum has been the material of choice for control panel faceplates, identification labels, and other durable equipment identification in the harshest operating environments such as construction, agriculture, forestry, mining, and drilling for more than 50 years.
Specified by the military, Metalphoto has proven outdoor durability of more than 20 years. That is because the Metalphoto image is sealed beneath a sapphire-hard anodic layer; providing resistance to corrosion, sunlight degradation, abrasion, extreme temperatures, and chemical exposure.
Metalphoto applications for heavy, off-road equipment include:
- equipment data plates
- load charts
- panel faceplates
- barcode and maintenance labels
