Metal Etching Kits

Metal Etched Panels in Brass and Stainless

The same principal for the etching of Printed Circuit Boards can be employed to etch metal panels for sign making. Depending on panel size required and anticipated throughput a whole range of equipment can be selected. The following three kits contain all that is required to produce etched panels in brass or stainless steel in sizes from 254mm x 300mm to 300mm x 500mm. Our standard laminator will process metals to 2mm thick although we have other machines if thicker metals need to be etched. One of the advantages of using dry film resist for etching is that the resist may be left on to act as a mask to aid the filling with colour.
