Instructional Labels

Durable, Legible Process & Protocol Identification

Instructional labels Instructional labels identify equipment maintenance requirements, operating instructions and safety instructions. Having those instructions on your equipment or posted in operating areas reminds employees what to do, when. Especially in outdoor or harsh manufacturing environments, instructional labels need to be legible after years of exposure and abuse. Metalphoto instructional labels exceed the demands of most operating environments.

Constructed of Metalphoto® photosensitive anodized aluminum, our instructional labels are used in applications where permanent product or process identification is critical. Metalphoto’s durability comes from its photographic image which is sealed inside of the anodized aluminum, providing exceptional resistance to corrosion, sunlight degradation, abrasion, extreme temperatures and chemical exposure.
