The Only Permanent Solution for Printing on Aluminum

Permanently printing ink on aluminum is a difficult task, as the difference in coefficients of expansion between the ink and the metal often causes the ink to delaminate. Many applications require permanent printing in order to maintain traceability over the life of the product. How can this problem be solved?

With Sanford Process's SANFORDPRINT™ printing technology. The SANFORDPRINT™ process embeds the ink within the aluminum by putting it into the anodic pores of the material, below the surface. The ink is then permanently entrapped by sealing.

Unlike similar techniques, SANFORDPRINT™ printing technology, combined with the high porosity achieved with Sanford Process's QUANTUM® process, leads to extremely high print density. The result is bold, clear, permanent printing.
