About Metalphoto®

Metalphoto® utilizes the porous nature of unsealed anodized aluminum to create a sub-surface image, through exposure and development of an anodic layer impregnated with silver compounds much like traditional black & white photography.

Metalphoto® plates are commonly used in military, aircraft, marine, heavy construction, and industrial applications. Metalphoto® products meet military specifications.
