Chemical Etching / Engraving
Chemical etching is a process where the image or background is etched into the surface of the metal using acid, to produce a sunken area on the surface of the plate. This recess may be filled with stove enamel, which is then baked for maximum durability. Chemically etched labels and nameplates are ideal in hazardous environments, the etching process ensuring the information is still legible even when the enamel has been destroyed.
Chemical etching is often used for office plaques, which require a logo with fine detail, which would be difficult to achieve with machine engraving. They can be mounted onto frames or plinths.
Fixings & Self adhesives
A range of adhesives can be coated onto the reverse side of your etched nameplates. They are supplied with an easy to remove release liner. Fixing holes, to enable finished plate to be screwed or riveted to your product also be provided, either alone or in addition to self-adhesive.
