When It Is Time To Order, Don’t Be Left Hanging

Posted on: June 5th, 2015 by | No Comments

Think; you just started your business and are in need of an industrial metal nameplate or decal. One that can with stand the harsh conditions your equipment goes through. You have a lot of questions but don’t know whom to turn to. The experts at U.S. Nameplate are here to answer those questions.

The biggest question you have is probably: What is it going to cost me? Typically, 4/5 of the cost of an industrial decal or metal nameplate is labor, and 1/5 is the cost of material. Metal will cost more than other substrates such as polyester, polycarbonate, vinyl and paper. Even though you will pay more initially, you will get a longer lasting product.

Which brings me to the next question. How long will my industrial decal or metal nameplate last? The length of durability varies greatly by exposure to the elements: temperature, humidity, how much sunlight it gets, for example.

Generally, you can expect high-performance premium vinyl films to last 5-7 years. Economy-grade vinyl films, which are less durable, can last between 1 and 3 years. Vinyl is a durable plastic film that is flexible. Often, vinyl is used on curved surfaces and is abrasion resistant and water and weatherproof.

Standard polycarbonate can be expected to last 3 years whereas coated polycarbonate can be expected to last 5-7 years. Polycarbonate is a strong, rigid plastic film offering excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. In addition, polycarbonate has good electrical qualities and like vinyl can conform to surface irregularities when heated.

Polyester films can last around 2 years. Polyester is a very strong plastic film. It does not conform as well as polycarbonate or vinyl, but offers little or no shrinkage.

Metals however, can almost stand the test of time depending on the process. Aluminum and stainless steel, which can be screen printed or digitally printed, can last 20 years. Aluminum that has been etched or screen filled can last around 25 years. Metalphoto decals and nameplates can last over 30 years.

Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals in the world. Its lightweight, high strength excellent chemical resistance and temperature resistance makes aluminum a high-performance label application. Aluminum can also be anodized which creates an even more durable aluminum product.

Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion, staining, temperature, low maintenance and familiar luster make it an ideal material for many label applications.

All these numbers are if conditions are perfect. With simple cleaning and maintenance every once in a while, your industrial decals and metal nameplates can last even longer.

The process of how your industrial decals or metal nameplates are printed depends on how long you would like for them to last. U.S. Nameplate has the capabilities to Metalphoto, metal etch, screen print and digitally print your industrial decals and metal nameplates. The table below shows the durability of the printing process in years.

Anodized Aluminum Products from U.S. Nameplate Co.

Posted on: February 24th, 2015 by | No Comments

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that coats metals, especially magnesium and aluminum, with a durable, decorative, corrosion-resistant, sapphire hard film. Unlike painting or plating, aluminum oxide is not applied at the surface but is fully integrated with the aluminum, so it cannot chip or peel. To accomplish this process, aluminum is immersed in an acid electrolyte bath. An electric current passes through combining the aluminum atoms with oxygen ions that are released from the electrolyte bath.

The benefits of anodized aluminum are plentiful. Durability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost, and environmentally safe are all characteristics that make anodized aluminum one of the most widely used materials today in the production of consumer, commercial, and industrial products.

The shelf life of anodized aluminum is almost indefinite and with a simple mild soap and water cleanse of surface dirt it could last forever. Anodizing allows aluminum to maintain its metallic appearance; scars, scratches, and just general wear and tear are virtually non-existent.

Anodized aluminum has a low initial finishing cost, and combined with low maintenance costs, is a good ROI for your business.

Anodized aluminum is considered environmentally safe as it is fully integrated into the aluminum resulting in a non-toxic, heat resistant, producing few if any dangerous by-products.

Here at U.S. Nameplate Co., anodized aluminum is used in many industrial metal products. Our customers in the automotive, racing, electronic, and transportation industries will tell you our control panel overlays fabricated out of anodized aluminum are built to withstand the harshest conditions.

Maintenance Tips for Metal Nameplates

Posted on: January 21st, 2015 by | No Comments

Safety Labels and Custom DecalsAt U.S. Nameplate, we build our products to last. In fact, some of our nameplates are durable for up to 25 years. No matter what the conditions or job—sweltering heat, freezing cold, underground work, and continual outdoor exposure—our metal nameplates really take a beating.

We offer custom work using aluminum, stainless steel and brass metal plates. For outdoor use, U.S. Nameplate Company uses a special metal etching process that actually becomes part of the metal.

While these materials and processes are durable and tough, there are tried and true methods to ensure they last even longer. The more effectively you can protect and preserve your metal nameplate, the more time and money you’ll save.

But first, it’s important to understand just why metals deteriorate.

All metals—depending on where they fall on the Galvanic Series—have the potential for corrosion. Corrosion is the atmospheric oxidation of metals. When metals corrode, they begin to disintegrate at the surface through a chemical reaction. Many factors can accelerate this corrosion process, including:

Temperatures: If your equipment is stored or operated in a hot, moist climate, corrosion will occur at a faster rate.

Salt: Whether it’s road salt or saltwater, salt accelerates the rate of metal rust and corrosion.

Water damage: The lower the ph (acidity) of the water that comes into contact with your nameplate, the quicker the rate of corrosion.

Bacteria: When colonies of bacteria form on metal, they speed up the corrosion process and cause pitting on the metal surface.

According to the Corrosion Technology Laboratory at NASA, stainless steel is an excellent choice to prevent general corrosion. At U.S. Nameplate, our stainless steel nameplates are available in thicknesses ranging from .010″ – .035″ with a 2B mill finish.

Aluminum is another great metal choice to reduce the damage of corrosion. Again, according to NASA, aluminum offers superior atmospheric corrosion capabilities. We can customize any nameplate using aluminum or anodized aluminum at thicknesses ranging from .005-.125.” In addition, you can choose from a wide variety of finishes including black, bright, brushed, clear, foil, red, and gold.

Brass nameplates contain zinc as the primary alloy element. In general, the higher the amount of zinc, the lower the corrosion resistance. U.S. Nameplate offers a brushed finish brass in thicknesses ranging from .020″ – .032.”

From simple solutions to more advanced electrochemical strategies, this guide is a good resource for minimizing corrosion for all your metal nameplates and equipment.

Trust U.S. Nameplate to fabricate your nameplates and then laminate, machine or die or digitally cut them according to your specifications. Request a quote or call us today.
