D&P nameplates are manufactured from anodised aluminium in a range of thicknesses, from 0.5mm to 1.5mm. The anodised surface has a porous cell structure which allows for the complete absorption of colour dyes. This produces a smooth finish of which is scratch, weather and solvent resistance.

Anodised aluminium nameplates come either in a matt or polished finish. These are then finished to produce the nameplates which can then have an adhesive backing, various sized fixing holes and corner radii.
