For over 50 years, the United States Department of Defense has specified Metalphoto photosensitive anodized aluminum for durable labels, nameplates, schematics and control panels installed in harsh operating environments, such as on airplanes and other aircraft.

Custom nameplates for the aviation, aerospace and aircraft industries require materials with high tolerances to meet ever-changing atmospheric pressure, weather conditions, temperatures, sunlight, abrasion, chemicals and solvents and long-term outdoor exposure.
