The metalphoto technology was developed in the 1950s, in the United States of America. A patented method is concerned, in which a light sensitive anodised aluminium plate is displayed through a photo negative.
Everything that can be photographed, can also be transferred to metalphoto plates – starting with drawings to texts and photos. A metalphoto allows for the reproduction of details, with ultra precision, in high resolution.
The image of the metalphoto is protected against sunlight, wear, humidity, effects of chemicals, corrosion and extreme temperatures.
The advantages of the product over other technologies (engraving, taping, etching, printing, painting etc.), are that the image is not located on the metal layer, but in the pores of aluminium, under a glass clear eloxal layer.
We are so confident in our quality that we give the products of metalphoto a decades-long guarantee.

bulletin boards, by numerous leading industrial companies, military and government institutions, as
