Laser Markable Label Material
Polyonics Introduces New Laser Markable Label Materials with Enhanced Durability for Applications Involving High Temperatures and Harsh Chemicals
Polyonics has developed black and white laser markable label materials (LML) for applications involving high temperatures and harsh environments. The new XF-537 (black) and XF-539 (True White™) LML materials combine high temperature and dimensionally stable polyimide film with durable cross linked laser ablatable polymer top coats. The unique materials can be easily marked by a wide variety of low power lasers including CO2, YAG, vanadate, fiber, diode and UV to produce high contrast linear and 2D bar codes and alpha numeric characters. The XF-537 also provides static dissipative performance to help prevent harmful ESD (electro static discharge) events occurring in static sensitive components and devices.
The new Polyonics family of LMLs is well suited for labeling applications where traditional thermal transfer printed labels have failed due to harsh environments and/or poor read rates. The LML materials far exceed the durability, temperature and chemical resistance of thermal transfer printed labels as well as the polyester (PET) and acrylic LML materials on the market. In addition, they improve read rates in direct part marking processes by providing consistent high contrast bar codes along with rework and repositioning options to help reduce manufacturing scrap rates.
The LML materials include pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA) and either glassine or PET liners for handling and die cutting. A variety of acrylic PSAs are available, including low surface energy (LSE), to best suit each application. LEARN MORE
