Chemical Etching.

Chemical etching is a method of engraving that uses a high-pressure, high-temperature chemical spray to remove material to create a permanent etched image in metal. A mask or resist is applied to the surface of the material and is selectively removed, exposing the metal, to create the desired image. This process, sometimes referred to as photochemical etching, is the most common method of etching metal. It is capable of reproducing an exceptional level of detail.

Typical applications for chemical etching include:-

  • Industrial nameplates and labels.

  • Architectural panels.

  • Plaques & memorials.

  • Safety & compliance signs.

  • Promotional Items.

  • Hotel & office signage.

  • Wayfinding signage.

  • Thin metal components.
