CHEMICAL ETCHED METAL TAGS
Chemical Etching - Chemical etching provides a black filled permanent image that is permanent on the material. This process works well for stainless and aluminum nameplates or equipment plates.
Chemically etched nameplates are manufactured by masking certain areas of metal with an acid resistant material. This allows the unmasked area to be dissolved away with acid, resulting in the masked areas remaining in relief. The depth of nameplate etching varies from 0.0015 to 0.003 inches, depending on the height and stroke of letters and the type of metal or alloy.
