Photosensitive anodized aluminum

Photosensitive aluminum’s durability, high-quality, long lasting appearance makes it a perfect choice for making durable, high-resolution nameplates, labels, control panels, and signs. It is installed in harsh operating environments. Photosensitive aluminum gets its durability from its unique process which seals the image within a hard anodized layer

About Anodized aluminum

Photosensitive anodized aluminum, also referred to as photo anodized aluminum, photo metal or Metalphoto, utilizes the porous nature of unsealed anodized aluminum to create a sub-surface image, either through exposure and development of an anodic layer impregnated with silver compounds , much like traditional black & white photography, or through use of a photomask in which the image is created through a variety of means, including chemical etching, color addition or color subtraction.
