EXPEDITER™ Photo Anodized Aluminum UID labels are made of Metalphoto® anodized aluminum. Exceptional durability results from the process:

  1. A black image is photographically reproduced on the matte aluminum surface.
  2. The image is embedded within a sapphire hard anodized layer.
  3. An additional intensification process further increases resistance to heat and UV rays.

Metalphoto® meets the most stringent MIL-STD's, including MIL-DTL-15024 Type G & H and MIL-P-19834. For more than 40 years, the US military has specified Metalphoto® for data plates and panels. It has been used on military vehicles and tanks, surface ships and submarines, Apollo landing craft and Space Shuttle Columbia.

The National Association of Graphic and Product Identification Manufacturers picks Metalphoto® as the most durable aluminum substrate due to its superior resistance to abrasion, heat and sunlight. Metalphoto® is a trademark of Horizons, Inc.
