Laser Marking PLA contains a laser-sensitive additive optimized to work within a 980-1064 nm wavelength. The material has been tested successfully with a Nd:YAG- and fiberlasers. Laser marking PLA will not work with CO2 lasers.
Laser Marking PLA is available in a light grey color to start with, close to RAL9018 but not an exact match.
Laser marking has various advantageous over conventional marking technologies.
1. Markings are permanent, waterproof, wear and heat resistant, lightfast and resistant to chemicals.
