markSolid products for metal marking produce permanent markings, highly resistant against mechanical and chemical strain as well as high temperatures (> 1000°C, depending on the metal). The products are suitable for use with CO2 lasers and Nd:YAG and fibre lasers.
One of the most common uses is the marking of stainless steel. Furthermore, the products may be used for marking non-ferrous metals, precious metals or metal coatings. Unless otherwise indicated, the products may be used universally and for various metals.
Determine the required laser settings depending on the metal to be marked. Stainless steel has the lowest requirements for the marking laser. Based on this, some metals or metal coatings require higher energy for marking. Equally, the rule of thumb applies: the better the heat conduction of the metal, the more energy required for marking.
Anodised aluminium holds a special position amongst the metals. The all-round metal marking products are not as suited for this or will not work with most types of anodised aluminium. Please use products specially developed for the marking of anodised aluminium.
Several options are available for the application of the marking material to the metal surface.
The most common and also most convenient method is aerosol coating.
