With excellent oxidation resistance, zinc is commonly used for cost-effective production of plaques, awards, signage, nameplates, foil stamping, intaglio and letterpress.
Magnesium Elektron Premium Triplemetal® Zinc starts with the highest-grade zinc spelter and combines precision traces of aluminum and magnesium to produce a smoother etch. Thermal flattening and annealing ensure a uniform, flat character to the zinc plate, which etches “soft” yet is durable enough to stand the test of time.
Our zinc plates are available pre-sensitized with Hydro-Coat® or POS-E-ZINC (Conta)® coatings. Non-sensitized (“polished”) sheets are also available. Combined with Hydro-Coat® and POS-E (Conta)® developers specifically designed for each coating, our system efficiently produces excellent results.
