Anodised Aluminium labels

What is Anodised Aluminium?

Anodising is an electrochemical process that converts a metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish and can be used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal. The image is then printed using special dye inks, which are absorbed by this anodic layer to become part of the actual aluminium. The anodic dye, penetrating deep into the aluminium (15 microns), produces labels that are much more resistant to abrasion than would be the case with surface printed inks

The anodised coating is hard, durable, will never peel, and, under normal conditions, will never wear through.

Advantages of Aluminium

  • Anodized Aluminium name plates and labels are used extensively throughout industry for their resilient properties.
  • Super Tough for exterior applications
  • Resistant to UV light, salt spray and harsh conditions
  • Chemical and solvent resistant
  • Corrosion and abrasion resistant
  • Can withstand high temperatures


Uses of Aluminium Anodised aluminium is perfect to use for:

  • Machine Rating Plates
  • Serial Number Tags
  • Dials & Scales
  • Valve Tags
  • V.I.N Plates
  • Compliance Plates
  • Control Panels
  • Asset Tags
  • Fire Door Rating Plates
  • Building Signage
  • Parking Signs
  • Danger and Warning Signs


Consecutive Numbering and Barcodes etc. 
Aluminium is highly suitable for the addition of variable information such numbering or barcodes at the point of manufacture.  On site the customer with use of metal punches can permanently marking the plate with characters  



Mounting of nameplates is usually by screw or rivet holes that are pressed into the metal plates. For thicker gauge plates, mounting is sometimes achieved by welding directly onto units at the point of manufacture.Alternatively, or in combination with the above, adhesives can be applied to the back of the nameplates. A large range of adhesive options are available to suit adhesion to almost any substrate, for example other metals, plastic and powder coated surfaces. Most of the adhesives specified are suitable for outdoor and wet applications.
