How AlumaTough, Sealed Anodized Aluminum Tag are Made...
The unique manufacturing process is what sets it apart from stainless steel or other ‘weatherproof’ tags.
With top quality materials, meticulous attention to detail, and diligent compliance standards across industries and specific uses, Aluma-Tough aluminum tags and name plates are built to withstand weather, chemical damage, abrasions, paint, aging, fungus, and beyond.
The process begins with a graphic – either a standard template or fully custom – generated on a special film, then exposed to a durable aluminum plate where it is developed, fixed, and rinsed. The graphic is then sealed to the plate with sapphire-hard, clear anodizing.
The final product is a resistant, clearly understandable plate of sealed, anodized aluminum, sized and cut exactly to your specs.
