Stainless steel plates are advertising panels mounted or installed in a desired location, and their purpose is to convey the required information. Stainless steel can be used in the making of these plates through photo etching steel methods, as they are rust resistant and can provide exceptional service life. Stainless steel plates can also be painted, powder coated, and brushed. In all these methods photo steels are particularly pleasing when viewed after applying the last two finishes.
Letters can also be inscribed using photo etching steel. Initially, writing or text was carved out of marble or wood to create a contrast, but now this is achieved through letters from materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, bronze or resin thanks to etching. The fonts and finishes that are achievable are almost unlimited and any potential for reproduction is within the resources, using modern sign etching techniques.
Personalized signage made of photo etched steel is completely unique, and the signs created by this nature can appear to be absolutely everything the customer requires. Personalized signs are ideal for points of sale and specific projects or for someone who likes to stand out from the crowd and show a certain individuality.
Signs can be fixed so that they appear to be hanging from nothing or invisible fixation. Or the fixings can be made with a decorative screw head stainless steel or chrome, for example.
There are many different types of signs in daily use and some of them may include:
. Signs and display cases
. Digital printing
. Signs and panels
. Nameplates and plates
. Signs of safety
. Exhibition graphics
Other types of signals include suspended signals. These types of signals are held by rods on the ceiling and fastened to a solid wall. The materials can be brushed or brushed in stainless steel, aluminum, glass or even a mixture of the three.
Independent boards can be assembled and installed anywhere where there is enough room to stay, and when not needed or needed elsewhere, they can be moved very simply.
Preparing surfaces for photo etching steel
The surface must be prepared before you can do photo etching. This ensures that you have the best results. To prepare the surface properly, you should first ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned. This means removing all traces of soap residue, dirt and oil, rust residue, wax and grease. To remove all of these you will need to use an abrasive detergent along with a steel wool pad or other abrasive material.
Once the surface is cleaned and prepared, you can begin to apply the etching cream. Make sure you mix it thoroughly enough to incorporate any crystals, separation or gel back into the product as a whole. These are perfectly normal occurrences with products like the Etch-I-M Etching Cream. Once the mix is incorporated and stirred thoroughly, you can apply the cream over the surface using a thick brush.
Allow the cream to set about five minutes before scraping it off and returning it to the container. You must then wash off the remaining product with water and an abrasive pad. Do not use steel wool to remove the etching cream as it can and will attack the steel in the same nature since it is designed to etch steel.
