Mounted Lead X-Ray Letters, Numbers, Arrows and Words
We custom-mount individual lead characters or complete words on plastic, aluminum, or copper to your specifications. We use flat-back letters and a special adhesive to insure that the letters stay permanently on their backing.
You will find mounted letters easier to handle, more economical than markers, and custom-made to fit your standard channel markers. You may also find that Aluminum or Copper mountings improve the letter contrast on your radiograph.
To order mounted individual characters or words, please indicate:
Letter Size - See previous page for the available sizes of all our letter styles.
Letter Style - See previous page for available letter styles. Unless you specify otherwise, we will mount the Flat Face Style.
Mounting Sizes, Individual Characters - The above are actual-size photographs of our standard mountings. Match your sample to these pictures, and reference the mounting number in your order. If your sample does not match, send us the sample, and we will return it with your order. You may also send sketches with exact dimensions or indicate the name of the channel marker you are using.
Mounting Sizes, Words - You can also use the above pictures and table to order standard mounted words. If your sample does not match any of the above pictures, send a sample, description, or sketch indicating letter style and height. Include the height and width of mounting background, and position of words, if not centered. Unless you indicate otherwise, words of greatest height will be mounted with an equal top and bottom margin; words of lesser height will rest on baseline of those taller words.
Mounting Material - All mountings will be centered on .020" thick white vinyl plastic, unless your sample, drawing or specified holder indicates otherwise. Industrial style letters will be mounted on black plastic, unless otherwise specified.
Accuracy - Please double-check your order specifications.
We can mount letters on the following materials:
- Black Plastic (.030" or .040" thick)
- Clear Plastic (.020" or .030" thick), mounted on the front (standard) or back
