Laser marking for caps & closures
Environmental-friendly laser marking pigments
LASERSAFE 040 is a new generation of laser marking additives based on a heavy metal-free pigment which renders it suitable for today´s eco-friendly markets. Exceptional contrasts at high speeds and superior quality can be achieved with LASERSAFE 040. It is suitable for use with all standard lamp technology, such as the Nd:YAG laser system operating at 1064nm. It is suitable for high marking speeds whilst exhibiting high contrasts with all type faces.
LASERSAFE 040 is designed for plastics which are inherently poor for laser marking such as polyolefins (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP and PP-copo) as well as engineering plastics like PA, PET, PS/SAN, PC/ABS, etc. Due to its excellent laser marking efficiency, even at low dosage levels, LASERSAFE 040 offers good color stability of the final formulation.
For easy dosing LASERSAFE 040 is available in pellet form and can thus be handled and processed as easily as a color masterbatch. The carrier material is based on a thermoplastic polyolefin.
