Industrial Nameplates and Durable Data Plates

Custom-Made Nameplates for Heavy- and Light-Duty Applications

MPC's custom nameplates and metal data plates are designed to remain readable for the life of your part, even in the harshest environments. MPC nameplates bearing critical product names, health and safety warnings and equipment data are built to last just as well in unprotected exterior applications as they are in mild, controlled environments.

Our metal nameplates, data plates and plastic nameplates offer tough performance through sustained outdoor exposure, extreme temperatures, chemical exposure and cleaning processes. MPC's custom industrial nameplates also meet many Department of Defense and aerospace specifications, as well as other industry standards. Our advanced fabrication capabilities reduce your lead time and minimize costly tooling charges, while delivering nameplates to your exact specifications with the highest-value metal or plastic nameplate solution.

A dependable nameplate built to stand the test of time, delivered on-time and at a competitive price. That's our guarantee.

Nameplate and Data Plate Options

  • Custom Metalphoto Nameplates

    Metalphoto® Nameplates

    Our most durable and popular material, metalphoto nameplates and data plates are the preferred choice for environments requiring extreme durability.

    • High-resolution graphics sealed beneath an impenetrable sapphire-hard anodic layer.
    • Superior resistance to chemicals, abrasion and solvents.
    • Built to withstand exterior exposure in the harsh environments such as extreme cold, heat and UV. Expected exterior life of 20+ years. Color options have limited UV resistance.
    • Most cost-effective for small to medium volumes.

  • Anodized Aluminum Nameplates and Data Plates

    Anodized Aluminum Nameplates

    An ideal choice for use in the aircraft/aeronautical, automotive, marine and military industries, with anodized surface with a virtually impervious protective finish to protect data.

    • Well-suited to applications requiring resistance to abrasion and corrosion, as well as moderate outdoor durability.
    • Excellent resistance to chemicals and solvents.
    • More economical in higher-volume applications.
    • Graphics are screen printed and sealed beneath the anodic layer. Black graphics offer the greatest durability, with expected exterior life up to 10 years. Color options have limited UV resistance.

  • Custom Aluminum Nameplates

    Aluminum Nameplates

    A lightweight yet strong material that is easily formed, aluminum is a popular choice for data and nameplates for its machinability and versatility.

    • Used in applications such as aircraft, marine, military and transportation.
    • Moderate outdoor durability and heat resistance. A protective coating increases abrasion resistance. Expected exterior life is up to 10 years.
    • Less expensive than many other metals.
    • Graphics may be printed on the surface or chemically etched.

  • Stainless Steel Nameplates

    Stainless Steel Nameplates

    A dense metal with exceptional resistance to chemicals and corrosion, ideal for marine, heavy industrial and food processing applications.

    • Frequently used in highly caustic and acidic environments that would otherwise attack aluminum and destroy most data plates.
    • Offers low maintenance and dent and scratch resistance.
    • A relatively inexpensive material when lifetime cost is examined. Expected exterior life of up to 20 years.
    • Graphics may be printed on the surface or chemically etched.
