Compliance & Mil Spec Plates

We take the worry out of our clients’ meeting required compliance plates and Mil-Spec plates standards because we meet all certifications. Federal, military and other governmental agencies require the strictest of standards.

Whether it’s OSHA-approved safety compliance plates for industrial use, or Mil-Spec plates to identify major weapons systems, or for UID (unique identification) labels used by the Air Force, our government continues to specify the MetalPhoto® process.

The aircraft/aerospace industry has strict requirements when it comes to compliance plates and metal photo labels. They require ID plates that are both lightweight and durable enough to withstand the harsh environment of aviation and space. A top-performing choice from Aluma Photo-Plate Co. is our custom-designed .003 anodized aluminum label with an aggressive adhesive. Its thin, lightweight metal photo profile provides the required durability and chemical resistance to harsh environments.

Sadly, the Shuttle orbiters are no longer servicing the International Space Station (ISS), but compliance plates and metal photo labels from Aluma Photo-Plate Co. are still providing stellar, durable performance on space station’s continuing mission.

With our history of providing quality products for the Gulf of Mexico offshore marine industry, Aluma Photo-Plate Co. offers a wide variety of compliance plates and salt water and chemical resistant metal photo labels and custom vinyl stickers for marine and topsides safety signs, safety posters, asset tags, no smoking signs, boat cabin placards, marine personal safety evacuation signs, emergency exit, international fire signs, and marine warning signs that withstand the onslaughts of sea, hurricane winds, oil, and chemicals.
