Anodized

Eloxal is short for electrolytic oxidation of aluminium. Anodizing, also known as anodic oxidation, is an electrochemical process in which the surface of aluminium is converted to aluminium oxide. The dense and very hard anodized coating that is produced in the process is firmly joined to the substrate and is highly resistant to mechanical, chemical and thermal loads.

Because of the porous nature of the oxide coating, printing methods or dye baths can be used to embed inorganic or organic colourants directly in the transparent anodized coating to protect against environmental conditions. This method is also known as anodic subsurface printing.

Properties and benefits

  1. The colour does not sit on the aluminium sign, on the aluminium front or on the aluminium label, but it is protected, embedded and sealed in the anodized coating
  2. Decorative, metallic character
  3. Glass-hard, corrosion resistant, scratch-proof and smooth surface
  4. Easy to clean
  5. Resistant to oils, greases, fuels and solvents
  6. Can be combined with the etching method

Uses

Type plates, rating plates • Brand mark signs, emblems • Scales, gauges, dials • Blanks, die cut parts, functional parts • Barcode signsDog license fee tags • Front plates, front panels • Front films, keyboard films • Technical labels • Advertising labels • Inscribable labels

Material

Aluminium

Print colours

Large selection of standard colours available. Within certain colour tolerances, special colours can be supplied by you or mixed individually. The colour "white" is not possible for anodic subsurface printing, because white colour pigments are larger than the pores on the anodized surface. For that reason, the basic silver colour of the anodized aluminium is usually used for white.

Variable information

Sequential numbering, sequential barcodes and alternating inscriptions using embossing, engraving, laser inscription or digital printing

Etching

In the etching method, industrial signs are inscribed by etching out material using an etchant. Areas that are not to be etched out are covered beforehand with a resist, which protects against the etchant. Here the writing can be recessed (positive etching, deep etching) or elevated (negative etching, relief etching)

Printed, back-printed

In industrial signage that is printed the print colours are transferred to the substrate using printing methods such as screen printing, offset printing or digital printing.

Engraving

Engraving is a stock-removing method in which the industrial signage is inscribed by removing material with the help of a rotary milling tool.

Laser inscribed

Laser inscription is a method in which the industrial signage is marked by modifying the substrate with the help of an intensive laser beam.
