Optional second colors are screen printed.
For applications where the nameplate will be exposed to higher temperatures or more extreme environmental conditions, Metalcraft offers an optional intensification process that increases heat resistance to 1000°F (intermittent) and improves image resistance for other environmental conditions including damaging UV rays. In addition, Metal Barcode Nameplates are available with pressure-sensitive adhesive or optional holes for mechanical fasteners.
