Ampacet laser marking products are compatible with most polymers and can be used with all laser types to provide high levels of contrast and shading. These formulations achieve line detail at impressive speeds on plastics that have historically been difficult to laser mark. Designed for thermal chemical surface reactions, these formulations are ideal for fiber, YAG, and vanadate lasers operating at a wavelength of 1060-1070 nm.
Ampacet can utilize additives, fillers, pigments, and dyes to enhance the absorption of laser energy for localized color changes. Formulation chemistries and laser optic configurations can be varied depending on the desired marking contrast and functionality. FDA compliant formulations are available.
Ampacet LaserMark solutions are designed to produce dark or clear markings for complex projects featuring different color shades. Sharp markings can be made on transparent or light-colored plastic parts with an NdYAG laser, creating a mark that is heavy metal free and suitable for food contact applications.
LaserMarkFlex™ is a portfolio of specific masterbatches designed for permanent ink-free high definition using NdYag technology in mono layer and coextruded film applications. LaserMarkFlex™ allows high flexibility, easy personalization and serialization that makes it ideal for small batch sizes and quick changing layouts.
