Horizons Imaging Systems Group is an internationally known manufacturer of printable aluminum used to produce labels, nameplates, equipment panels and more. Employing a range of processes, our products are produced on state-of-the-art manufacturing lines located in Cleveland, Oh. Their products are known for extraordinary durability in industrial nameplate and label applications, inclusive of bar code and UID labels. The quality and appearance of their finished products are so remarkable that they are widely used for plaques, awards, signage and specialty photography to name a few.
Johnson Plastics became involved with Horizons when they introduced their AlumaMark and DuraBlack products both of which are anodized aluminum which can be imaged and marked with a CO2 laser.
AlumaMark is an incredible new aluminum product from Horizons, a supplier of printable and markable aluminum sheet products ideal for the production of plaques, awards, signs and nameplates. AlumaMark allows you to "write" into anodized aluminum using a co2 laser. It will produce black graphics beneath the anodized surface. The graphics are marked into the aluminum permanently.
Available in 12 Colors: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Brass, Matte Silver, Mirror Silver, Mirror Gold, Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, and Blue
For Indoor use only. This product may be used outdoors only if the finished lasered plate is sprayed with a UV Stable clear coat of Krylon.
DuraBlack™ is CO2 laser markable aluminum for durable, on-demand marking for harsh operating environments. In side-by-side tests, DuraBlack outperforms black anodized aluminum and laser markable acrylic tape in select applications. DuraBlack is resistant to sunlight (UV-radiation), abrasion, high-temperatures, salt-spray and chemical exposure. Because of its ability to perform across a range of challenging environments, DuraBlack meets several government, industrial and military specifications including MIL-STD 130N, A-A-50271 (?MIL-P-514D) and MIL-STD-15024F, Type L.
Composed of a multi-level coating available upon 0.005" or 0.020" thick aluminum, DuraBlack can be attached to either curved or flat surfaces with adhesive, rivets or screws. It is imaged with any CO2 marking laser to produce a durable, high-resolution barcode or human-readable image.
