Eternal beam

For many people, visible light is just a nice effect. A snapshot in time. Would you have thought, that laser light could also be used to mark things that last forever?

Whether as clear and razor-sharp marking of cables, electronic components or silicones; compared with similar marking technologies, laser marking is an environmentally friendly, durable, virtually indestructible, and at the same time counterfeit-proof method of inscribing thermoplastic polymers and silicones. Our laser sensitive pigments of the Iriotec® 8000 series make cables markable with laser light. Invisibly incorporated into the polymer, the laser additives unfold their special properties under laser influence: they turn laser radiation into color and create “light that writes”.
