Economical plastic with superior pliability.

Vinyl can be suitable for a distinct narrow range of applications in mild environments, and is generally more affordable than polyester and polycarbonate. Vinyl delivers the best pliability among plastic options, easily conforming to curved or irregular surfaces.

Please note that vinyl can tear, and can creep or shrink away from the edges because of its lack of dimensional stability and lower tolerance to heat. Contact MPC for more information.


Material Characteristics

Up to .004″
Gloss – high reflectivity; shiny Matte – no reflectivity
Graphic elements are applied to sheets of vinyl using a digital or screen printing process. Afterwards, we use our advanced fabrication capabilities to match your design requirements. Depending on your product and specifications, fabrication may include die-cutting, laser-cutting, and permanent pressure-sensitive adhesives.

Specialized Material Options for Your Application

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:

  • Lasts over 20 years outdoors without fading or degradation.
  • Uniquely resistant to damage or degradation from environmental factors like abrasion, UV fading, harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and corrosion from saltwater exposure.
  • Exceptional image resolution that allows for photo image, security and microprint options.
  • Ability to support unique information, including a unique barcode or QR code and letter/number combination on every piece.
