Holland 1916 Now Offers ColorIn Aluminum to Nameplate Customers

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - Holland 1916, a manufacturer of custom stainless steel and aluminum nameplates, data plates, and tagging solutions, expands its product offering to include ColorIn aluminum nameplates.

ColorIn aluminum (sometimes referred to as two step color anodizing) is a product that uses cobalt salts to create colored anodized aluminum instead of organic dyes used in traditional colored anodized aluminum processes. Using cobalt salts instead of organic dyes creates a durable product that shows very little color variation when exposed to sunlight. ColorIn is typically used in architectural applications where a durable colored anodized aluminum is required and 20 years of color integrity is expected. Most notably the architects that designed the new Super Dome in New Orleans specified ColorIn aluminum as the material of choice for the roof of the building.

"In the past ColorIn was not cost effective and therefore was not a viable solution for our customers," stated Josh Shelton, Director of Nameplate Sales, Holland 1916. "We have customers that were seeing nameplate failures due to fading over time making their tags almost illegible. As a solutions provider we knew that we needed to find a way to provide the best, most durable product, for our customers."

"Together with our material supplier we have worked hard to put a program in place that enables us to provide the right solution at a competitive price for our customers. Today's market demands that we continue to get better and in turn continue to add more value to our customers," said Adam Barksdale, President of Holland 1916 Nameplate Division.
