Product features

Unlike other printing techniques, with the anodising process (fully anodised in accordance with DIN 30645) the colours do not sit on metal carriers but are embedded under the transparent anodised layer in the aluminium pores of the type plates themselves, like a Tattoo.   

This results in type plates that are highly resistant to mechanical, thermal and chemical stresses and UV exposure.
