The anodic oxide coating produced by anodising is able to absorb inks and pigments during processing. ANOMARK anodic printing is a technique that uses this ability to produce indelible printing. ANOMARK printing is available in a wide range of colours and multicolours on one work piece and offers a very attractive appearance.
Key ANOMARK Information
- Indelibility – The printing is resistant to abrasion to the printed nameplate specification British Standard BS4781 Part 2
- Resistant to Solvents – The printing is resistant to all currently used solvents both chlorinated and hydrocarbon.
- Resistance to Heat – The printing is resistant to heat up to 300 degrees C.
- Resistance to Moisture – The printing will withstand hot water at 100 degrees C.
Cameo Anoprint provides raised anodic legends, chemically brightened if required, on a relieved background. The legends are available in a range of colours, and it is usual, but not essential, for the background to be matt natural anodised. This gives an interesting contrast in both texture and tone. As the product is anodised all over, it has good durability.
